3 tequila-based cocktails you can make at home (before your next night out)

This week saw Mexicans and people across the world will celebrate Día de los Muertos by raising a toast to the souls of lost loved ones in a celebration of their lives. The day may have passed, but that doesn't mean you've missed your chance to re-create some delicious, tequila-based cocktails of your own. Maybe you're planning your next night out, or, heck, Christmas party season is just around the corner! Surely any of the below recipes will be put to good use in the coming weeks. These particular cocktails were made using Jose Cuervo Tradicional tequila so if you have some all the better (but a close enough variation should still do the trick if you're stuck).  Start the prep work now and get the mixers ready...
