Cinco de Mayo Cocktails: Patrón Steps In with Great Recipes!

It’s officially Cinco de Mayo. What better way to celebrate this “holiday” than with cocktails from Patrón! I have 3 recipes that range from savory to tropical to herbal. Each is created by a different mixologist. It’s going to be a great weekend because it’s TGIT and Mother’s Day is but a couple of days away. I will be sharing more cocktails for you to mix up for friends!

.75 oz Patrón XO Cafe

.5 oz Patrón Citrónge Orange

.75 oz Fresh Lemon Juice

1 bar spoon (.125 oz) Toasted Sesame Oil

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.

I would like to thank Patrón for all these great recipes. I will be featuring more cocktails throughout the weekend. Enjoy your Cinco de Mayo and embrace the opportunity to share these recipes with friends!
