When it comes to parties or enjoying a summer drink out on your back patio, the one drink that always comes to mind is delicious and refreshing, and yes, we’re talking about the classic margarita. I personally enjoy margaritas, and I am always looking for a new twist on an old favorite.
This year, Patrón Tequila is spotlighting seven one-of-a-kind margaritas that have each been created by top bartenders across the U.S and Mexico, using current trends and their own creativity to make the ultimate, unique, flavorful margarita. Here’s the fun part: you can try them all! Your vote will help decide 2016’s Margarita of Year. Come join the fun!
Before casting your vote, why not try one at home? One margarita worth trying is the Re-Margarita created by Rosie Ruiz from Los Angeles, California. This cocktail will not only let your tastebuds soar, it’s also a fun twist on the classic Margarita. This unique cocktail features bright citrus flavors and a cool carbonated fizz. It’s the perfect blend of tang with a refreshing hint of fizz. We love it! Be sure to check out the recipe below:
2 oz Patrón Silver
2 oz Carbonated Homemade Orange-Lime Cordial
Carbonated Homemade Orange-Lime Cordial Materials:
2.5 oz Patrón Citrónge Lime
10 Medium Navel Oranges
4 Cups of Cane Sugar
Pour Patrón Silver over cracked ice in a double old fashioned glass, and top off with an equal measure of the carbonated homemade orange-lime cordial. Gently stir ingredients to combine. Garnish with lime and orange wheels studded with a clove.
Carbonated Homemade Orange-Lime Cordial:
Place the peels of 8 limes and 10 oranges in a bowl along with 4 cups sugar and muddle to release the essential oils. Cover and let sit for 1 hour. Meanwhile, juice the limes and oranges. After 1 hour, add citrus juices, 2.5 oz. Patrón Citrónge Lime and 4 whole cloves and stir to create a syrup. Refrigerate 8-12 hours, then strain and store in fridge. To carbonate, mix 18.5 ounces of the cordial liquid with 6 oz. water and charge using a soda siphon or whipped cream charger with two six-gram CO2 cartridges.
Cast your vote for which you think makes a #PerfectMargarita and is worthy of being named 2016’s Margarita of the Year.
