I admit that this sounds like it might be disgusting, and to some of you it probably will be, but it’s also a lot of fun to drink. Sometimes trashy parties call for trashy cocktails. I made up this recipe with my friend Ara Jo using ingredients we had on-hand before a house party one night.


  • 1.5 oz tequila
  • 1 Starbucks Doubleshot espresso
  • 1 oz Diet Coke


  1. Mix tequila and Starbucks Doubleshot with ice in a pint glass.
  2. Top with Diet Coke.
