8 Reasons Girls Who Love Tequila Are Better

Because if she can handle tequila, she can handle you too.

There are all kinds of alcohol stereotypes out there but the one associated with tequila is probably the worst: tequila makes you crazy. But if there's one thing we can all agree on, it's that women who drink tequila are one-of-a-kind.

Whether it's loving or fighting, you'll never find anyone who does it better than a girl who just straight up loves tequila, and here are a few reasons why that is.

1. She's independent

A girl who drinks tequila is probably the same girl who has absolutely no problem telling it like it is. She knows what she wants and goes after it.

2. She doesn't care what you or anyone else thinks

Oh, you have a problem with me taking shots and having a good time? Well, get over it! Bartender, a shot with salt and a lime please!

3. Always dancing

Tequila is an 'upper' so instead of sitting at the bar doing nothing, let's dance! Let's get moving!

4. There is never a dull moment

Speaking of dancing, a girl who drinks tequila is always down for a good time. Whether it's going on an adventure or seeing who can take the most shots, a tequila girl is always down to party.

5. While everyone else is starting to get sleepy, she has all the energy

Like I said, tequila is an 'upper' so while the other girls at the bar are starting to feel groggy and sad, she's all over the place having fun and partying on the dancefloor.

6. She's stronger than the girl crying over a vodka cranberry at the bar.

Sad over a breakup? Don't go for the vodka... Tequila will make you feel better in no time! Plus you can challenge the hot guys at the bar to a shot taking contest.

7. Tequila is healthy for you

Tequila is a probiotic, so some tequila a day keeps the doctor away. Yay for shots!

8. She can hold her own when it comes to alcohol

Any girl who can shoot some shots at the bar all day and night can handle alcohol, which means she can handle herself too. You won't have to deal with her constant breakdowns and mood swings because she will be too busy ordering more shots.

Off-The-Menu Drinks At Your Favorite Drink Spots To Keep You Cool All Summer Long

If you're willing to try something different from your daily non-fat iced coffee with two pumps of vanilla, this list of obscure drink items is a great place to start.


Trying new things is scary, and paying for a new drink you've never had before is a risk most aren't willing to take. I get it. That's why I already tried these drinks for you, and if you don't mind trusting a stranger, you may be pleasantly surprised.

1. LemonBerry Ice Cream Slush at Sonic


There's a reason that this flavor-filled drink is first on the list. I found this drink through its cousin, the LemonBerry Slush, and later learned that one can upgrade any slush on Sonic's menu by making it an "Ice Cream Slush." Not only does America's drive-in have the best slushes, but they found a way to make these drinks even better. What a concept.

2. Cotton Candy Frappuccino at Starbucks

Starbucks always has a way to surprise its customers, and the drink possibilities are endless at this coffee shop. The Cotton Candy Frappuccino is located on the "secret menu" and it's a favorite for those who are in the mood for a sweet, flavor-filled drink!

3. Thai Iced Tea


You can order a Thai iced tea at most Thai restaurants, boba tea shops or in a can at a grocery store of your choice. The drink consists of black tea, condensed milk and ice. Sounds simple enough, but it tastes like what I imagine happiness would taste like.

4. Orangesicle Frost at Dutch Bros

Dutch Bros seems to have millions of options when it comes to their menu, and that could be the reason for the seemingly permanent long line that cuddles the small drink stop. The orangesicle frost tastes, well, like a melted orangesicle in a cup. It reminds you of your childhood, cools you off and makes you smile all at once during your first sip.

5. Lavender White Chocolate Blended at the Grand

Lavender lovers come out of their lavender-scented cave from all over Phoenix to get this drink. It's sweet, refreshing and tastes like flowers.

Sometimes your usual order gets repetitive, and you need something new to make you feel alive again, so I hope this list of funky-yet-yummy drinks allows you to step out of your comfort zone and be pleasantly surprised.
