Easy and fun cocktail recipes for busy moms!


Motherhood and life in general has kept me on my toes over the past few years. I feel like I haven’t been able to hit the pause button and make time to enjoy the little things in life from hosting a ladies night to planning fun date nights. Life gets kinda busy around here. After having two surgeries over the past few years, one of my goals for 2024 is to have my family and friends over more often. Life is short and tomorrow isn’t promised so mamas, it’s important to make the time to do things that will make a big impact on your heart such as having your girlfriends over for an evening of fun. I love hosting, and I usually turn to wine for every occasion until I recently discovered 21Seeds Infused Tequila. Yes you heard that right, 21Seeds is an award-winning Infused Tequila made with real fruit JUICE, founded by 3 women who love a tasty and fresh natural flavored drink just like myself. 

A few months ago, my friend flew in from out of town to surprise me for my birthday and I shared with her that I’m tired of drinking wine all the time so we went to our local liquor store searching for something new. We met the most amazing mom there who instantly recommended 21Seeds Infused Tequila after overhearing our conversation about going back and forth about what to try. Since then 21Seeds Infused Tequila has been my go-to, and I always have a bottle in my cabinet. They have lots of easy to make cocktail recipes on their website for every occasion. I’ll share a few ways that I love to enjoy my new favorite tequila along with some simple and fun recipes I enjoy making.

Date Night Fun

Ladies, here is my top pick to spicing up your date night with a simple, easy to make Spicy Seed Margarita. There’s no better feeling than sipping on our margaritas while listening to music and dancing in front of the fireplace all night. The expression on my husband’s face was priceless after showing off my drink making skills. I’m not usually the one who makes the drinks so it felt great putting together a simple at home date night surprise for my husband. What I love the most about this recipe is that you can pre-make a batch for endless fun, perfect for any occasion actually! 

Spicy Seed Margarita Recipe for 1 cocktail

1.5 oz 21Seeds Cucumber Jalapeño Infused Tequila

1/2 oz fresh lime juice

1/2 oz simple syrup

Add all the ingredients into a shaker with 1.5 cups of ice. Shake for 30 seconds and then pour into your glass. Optional: Rub the rim of your glass with a lime wedge and salt the rim. You can also substitute the salt for Tajin. Garnish with a lime or cucumber slice and serve. 

Hosting Ladies Night 

Gathering with my friends is so much easier and stress-free now that I’ve learned to make my own charcuterie boards and cocktails. From the Paloma to the Seed + Soda, I love that there is a different 21Seeds Infused Tequila recipe option for everyone. I recently hosted a cocktail party, where we all chose which drink we wanted to make, then we made a surprise drink for each other. Figuring out which flavor of Tequila we used was a blast, we mixed different garnishes with different splashes of juices. It was an explosion of fruit flavored cocktails filled with an unforgettable night of memories made with my girlfriends. The recipe that was made the most that night was the Seed Paloma. 

Seed Paloma for 1 cocktail

1.5 oz Grapefruit Juice

0.5 oz Simple Syrup

0.5 oz Lime Juice

Add all the ingredients into a glass and mix. Fill the rest of the glass with ice and garnish with a slice of grapefruit and a sprig of basil.

Evening Drink & Dinner Prep

While preparing dinner, I love to sip on a seed & soda. It’s light, refreshing and the best part is it’s easy to make! I always change the recipes depending on my mood and what I’m making for dinner. Taco Tuesday gets a different cocktail, am I right?


Seed + Soda for 1 cocktail

1.5 oz 21Seeds Flavored Tequila (pick your infusion!)

3 oz club soda 

A splash of your favorite juice

Add all the ingredients into a glass and mix. Pour over ice and garnish with your favorites.

On days when the kids have no homework or after school activities and my husband is cooking dinner, I would enjoy a glass of my favorite infused Tequila while catching up on …well everything from emails to watching my favorite show all at the same time. I didn’t realize how easy and fun it is to make cocktails and entertain at home. I’m going to make it a priority to have my friends over more often, it’s stress-free and so much fun to sit around and chit chat while making drinks with the girls. Everyone was raving about the cocktail party and can’t wait for the next get together. Thank you 21Seeds Infused Tequila for making such a fabulous real fruit JUICE infused tequilas that comes in 3 different flavors: Cucumber Jalapeno, Grapefruit Hibiscus, and Valencia Orange. 21Seeds Infused Tequila was created by moms for moms.
