Welcoming Patrón

Patron Tequila Tee-Shirt

Boozin’ Gear is always looking for more branded clothes for you to add to your collection. Recently Patrón Tequila gear joined the list of brands available. As welcome to the new addition I offer the following tequila drink recipes – all perfect for these hot summer days.

First, naturally, is the margarita:

You’ll need:
Triple sec
Sour or Margarita mix
Ice cubes
Lemon and/or lime

To make it you’ll need to:
Pour 1 ½ oz tequila, ½ oz triple sec, 3 oz of the mix into a shaker with a cup of ice cubes. Reserve a wedge of the citrus for garnish and squeeze the rest into the shaker. Shake well. Salt the rim of your margarita glass, pour in the margarita and ice, garnish and serve.

For a frozen margarita assemble the same ingredients in a blender and blend.

Some variations on the traditional margarita include frozen apple (replace the triple sec and citrus juice with apple brandy and apple sauce and blend), frozen Hawaiian (replace the lemon and lime with strawberries and pineapple and blend) peach (add peach schnapps and peaches), and whatever else you can dream up.

But tequila drinks aren’t limited to margaritas.

Try a paloma. Simply add 2 oz. blanco or reposada tequila, ice, 6 oz. grapefruit juice, and ½ oz lime juice to a Collins glass. Top with a splash of club soda and you’ve got a great thirst quencher.

Then there’s the classic tequila sunrise with 4 oz of orange juice, 2 oz of tequila, ½ oz of grenadine. Mix the juice and tequila with ice cubes in a highball glass. Then carefully pour the grenadine on top for the sunrise effect. Garnished with an orange slice and maraschino cherry this is a dramatic and tasty drink.

But that’s really a lot of trouble, isn’t it. How about some simple tequila shots? OK, everyone together now:

Lick, Shoot, Suck!

And, Welcome, Patrón!
