A warm winter orange cocktail with spices from the chai tea and lemon are in this hot toddy!
Tequila is normally one of those spirits that you think about having while sitting on a warm sunny beach, but we have found it can be surprisingly delightful in a number of drinks that are perfect for a cold winter night. When the folks at Partida Tequila contacted us to send some samples of their Blanco tequila to try, we figured it would be a good chance to come up with a tequila orange cocktail recipe that would help warm up a few of the snowy nights we have recently had!

Partida Tequila is a craft tequila distillery owned by the family of Enrique Partida of Amatitan, Jalisco where they raise the blue agave used in their tequila. Partida’s blanco is made from hand harvested fully mature blue agave imparting a richer flavor to the tequila.
Partida’s blanco is an un-aged tequila that has a nice herbal note with just a hint of citrus that was reminiscent of grapefruit, giving a slight bitter note that helped balance the sweet of agave sugars.Hints of vanilla, spice and an earthy mineral component that rounded out the citrus making this blanco a complex and flavorful spirit.
What Ingredients Needed in a Tequila Hot Toddy?
- Orange Juice
- Chai Tea
Tequila typically is mixed with lots of bright citrus, but it can also be amazing with some warm spices, especially if you have a tequila that has hints of vanilla and spice like the Partida blanco. We found a great hot chai to serve as our base, the cardamom and ginger, cinnamon and cloves all warming spices that complimented the vanilla and spice notes of the tequila.
A drizzle of Honey helps sweeten the drink and smooths out the bitter notes of the tea. A splash of fresh squeezed orange juice finishes the drink with a nice fresh citrusy brightness. We hope this orange cocktail will help change your idea of tequila drinks and chase off the chill of winter!
