The Sour Tarantula Cocktail

We designed two cocktails for our Podcast Promo Party that was hosted on July 21st, 2021. Erick’s cocktail used one of our new-found spirits, Tarantula Azul Tequila with some sour mix to make a fun playful cocktail perfect for a party or around the pool.

The Sour Tarantula Cocktail Recipe

We wanted to be sure we gave you enough time to gather those ingredients. And so, we’re presenting the recipe a little early to help you out!

Author: Erick


  • Lowball Glass
  • Cocoktail shaker
  • Jigger




  • Rimming Salt
  • Lime or Lemon wedge for rimming glass
  • Gummi Spiders optional


  • Chill rocks glass in freezer then rim glass with salt and fill with ice.
  • Add ice, tequila & sour mix to cocktail shaker.
  • Shake vigorously.
  • Remove glass from freezer & fill small plate with salt
  • Rub rim of glass with lemon/lime wedge then roll rim in salt as desired
  • Pour all contents from cocktail shaker into rimmed rocks glass.

If you can’t find Tarantula Tequila, substitute with white/blanco tequila. Same goes for gummi spiders; Trolli gummi octopus work out perfectly.

Some of that mixology terminology a little too confusing for you? Don’t worry! We have you covered with a video you can follow!

The Sips & Spirits Cocktail Promise

As you familiarize yourself with what Sips & Spirits does on the podcast, we also have certain goals in mind. It is extremely important when we design cocktails that they are not just friendly to the beginner mixologist, but also affordable. The majority of the ingredients listed can be substituted and suggestions are noted whenever possible.

But that’s not all! Whenever we design an original cocktail, we try to provide a mocktail to match. Whatever the reason, we understand that not everyone wishes to or is able to indulge in alcohol and we find it valuable to offer an alternative so you can still be a part of the fun. Unfortunately, as this was one of our earlier cocktails, you’ll have to check back later when we revisit this cocktail to create a non-alcoholic version.
