Outside of making a margarita, tequila can often be overlooked when a person is mixing drinks at home. Let's change that mindset, shall we?

Created by Ottawa barkeep extraordinaire Mike Campbell, this cocktail recipe is created highlights the pairing of Cada Día Tequila Reposado–with its vanilla and oaky notes–and fresh thyme. The blueberry and lemon respectively add touches of sweetness and acidity, making the drink perfectly balanced and delicious.

Add all ingredients except seltzer to a shaker. Cover and shake hard without ice for at least 20 seconds.
