12 Drinks of Christmas: Day 11! Step Up Your Cocktails with Patrón!!

It’s Day 11 of the 12 Drinks of Christmas! We are getting close to the end. Well not really the end, because I will run a couple of days longer and save a few for first true weekend in January since it’s such a busy weekend ahead.

PATRÓN is known for amazing tequila and even better liqueurs and extensions that use tequila. I personally love Patron family of spirits because nothing disappoints.
