Margarita lovers, listen! Even if it’s still a little cold outside, Spring is around the corner and I feel totally comfortable in declaring the Margarita season officially opened! Last night I threw a small party with my girls at my apartment and I’ve decided to re-create a Margarita Bar, just for us. No specific reason to celebrate, but actually, do we always need one?
Making cocktails it’s no easy at all, but I think that there’s a trick that you could use across all the food and drink world. I always prefer to invest in top shelf ingredients, I truly believe that this make the difference on the table. Probably most of you use this rule for food but remember: nothing makes your drink magical than an high-quality liquor mixed with fresh ingredients. And this is the reason why I chose Patrón as main character for my Margarita Bar.
Patrón is celebrating the most popular cocktail nationwide, it has crafted 7 artisanal recipes that showcase the versatility of the margarita and its endless variations in flavor profiles—from spice-infused to classic citrus.
‘Tiki Rita’ is the one that I has been picked up to recreate, a combination of fresh flavors including the grapefruit and cloves, two of my favorites. My girls were the final judges in this personal challenge. I think that I passed the Tiki Rita test, I’m pretty sure that they had a lot of fun last night 😉
