Cocktails with El Mayor Tequila

by James Stevenson

I love partnering with companies like El Mayor Tequila, not just because I absolutely love tequila, but because of their company values. Vales that can be traced back through four generations of agave farmers and tequila distillers, located in the highlands of Jalisco. The obvious cocktail whenever I am asked to mix anything with tequila, is a Margarita. I can’t just mix up your usual Margarita, so I mixed in some blood orange juice to give it depth, and a touch of jalapeño for a kick. Of course, I couldn’t stop there, so I mixed up a Beautiful Booze favorite with a twist, and the Lashes & Diamonds came out deliciously with a boost of earthiness and rich agave flavor from the agave syrup. Don’t just take my word for it though, try out these cocktails at home.
