Tequila-Plum Smash

Prep Time 10 mins
Total Time 10 mins
Course Cocktail
Servings 1


  • 2 1/2 ounces Suerte Reposado Tequila
  • 1 whole small ripe plum (pit removed and sliced)
  • 4 large fresh basil leaves (or 3 sliced of jalapeño if you'd prefer a spicy drink)
  • juice of half of a lime
  • maple syrup to taste
  • 2 ounces sparkling water or ginger beer


  • In a cocktail shaker or mason jar with a tight-fitting lid, muddle the plum and basil or jalapeño with the tequila.
  • Add ice to the shaker, along with the lime juice and maple syrup, if desired. We like to add a splash of maple syrup if the plum we are using is not very sweet naturally. Start with a small amount and add more after you have shaken with ice and tasted it.
  • Shake until the shaker is cold and strain into a fresh glass. Top with a splash of sparkling water or ginger beer and garnish with a slice of plum and basil leave or jalapeño slice.
  • Cheers!
