It's your favourite day of the year; that's right, it's National Tequila Day. To help you celebrate we've challenged Patrón and 1800 Tequila to give us their best cocktail recipes.
The Espresso Martini
25ml Patrón Silver
25ml Patrón XO Cafe
25ml espresso shot
Rim the serving glass with sugar. Combine liquors with espresso in a mixing glass; add ice, shake, and strain. Garnish with powdered chocolate.
1800 Coconut Colada
50ml 1800 Coconut
50ml cream of coconut
75ml pineapple juice
50ml fresh lime juice
First add all the ingredients to the shaker. Then fill the shaker with ice to the top and shake hard for about 7/10 seconds. Strain into a glass and garnish with 5 dashes of cherry aromatic bitters and shaved coconut.
The Classic Margarita
1/2 lime juice (about 15/20ml)
15/20ml Orange liqueur, depending how sweet you like it
Add all the ingredients to the shaker, then prepare the glass you are serving it in (salt &/or ice). Then fill the shaker with ice to the top and shake hard for about 7/10 seconds. Pour into your glass.
Now the drinks are made...
Once you've toasted the agave (that's the base ingredient of tequila for those not in the know) and finished your tasty tequila treat, line up the shot glasses and rock out like LMFAO and Lil Jon (see the video below for further instruction).Reuse content
