Teaquila Mita

Ditch the salt and lime with this Tealeaves cocktail created by a tequila master from Mexico!

The “Tea”quila Sunrise Cocktail harmonizes sweet and tart, infusing the classic Tequila Sunrise with a deep berry palate. Beautifully layered Mountain Berry Tea syrup over a frozen mint leaf, and freshly squeezed orange juice. Sip a bit of summer with this twist on a classic. Tantalize your taste buds, and slip into a moment on the beaches of Hawaii with the “Tea”quila Sunrise.

A note from Fredo Sanchez, Tequila Barista at Four Seasons Punta Mita:

"Enjoy a Mexican sangría in this exotic combination of hibiscus and berries both rich in antioxidants and high in flavonols and polyphenols. [The drink] is sweetened with agave nectar (sugar where tequila is from) a low-glycemic sweetener that does not spike the blood sugar level.

1,2,3 ….   TEA QUILA!!!!!”

Alfredo Sanchez is the Tequila Barista at Four Seasons Punta Mita in Mexico, where he often educates and enlightens guests during their stay with unique and tantalizing tequila-tasting experiences. He pushes the boundaries of innovation and enables guests to discover the complexities of each and every tequila drink – it is no surprise we have invited him to the Tealeaves family as one of our fantastic ICONS.

Alfredo uses his talents to mix traditional Mexican ingredients with tequila in unconventional ways, such as dabbling in molecular mixology. With unique ingredients, he strives to bring out tequila’s many layers, flavours, and complexities. Some of the ingredients he uses include tequila shots chased with orange and grapefruit wedges, chili powder-dusted pineapple, chunks of dark chocolate, or red and green sangrita.
