September 16 is celebrated in Mexico as the day of Independence and this day marks the historic moment when the country officially took its first steps as a sovereign nation in order to become independent from Spain. On this day, we remember Father Hidalgo who started the great battle cry for revolution, and we celebrate the rich culture and history that has developed over the past 205 years.
- Mayan Mule
This makes use of a reposado tequila of your choice, poured over ice in a Collins glass with lime juice, Angostura bitters, and ginger beer and garnish with a lime wheel. A taste of old Mexico.
- Little Dragon
This drink uses a Tequila Blanco, so a younger variation, with jalapeno hot sauce, agave nectar, lime juice, and a dash of lager to create a beautiful foam for the top. Ingredients original to all parts of Mexico to really celebrate the country and its riches.
- Peligroso Sangre
The Peligroso requires the use of Peligroso Cinnamon Tequila along with red wine, Cointreau, and a dash of ginger ale, garnished with an orange twist. A richer, darker drink that combines Spanish heritage with unique Mexican cultural developments.
- Bloody Maria
A twist on the brunch favorite, the Bloody Maria is the same combination of Worcestershire, hot sauce (like Tabasco), horseradish and garnish, but with the addition of a good tequila instead of vodka.
- La Paloma
The easiest drink in the book and it’s delicious too! The tequila of your choice, and grapefruit soda (the San Pellegrino Pompelmo is a great option), poured together in a tumbler and garnished with some lime!
