This simple cocktail is made with equal parts tequila and lemonade, giving it a sweet and sour flavour profile. Its name comes from the way it is traditionally consumed - by slamming the bottom of a shot glass on a table after taking the shot to release carbonation and mix the ingredients together. The Tequila Slammer is a refreshing and easy-to-make cocktail that brings together the boldness of tequila with the tanginess of lemonade. It is perfect for a hot summer day or as a quick pick-me-up drink.
