Salud! Tasty cocktails for Hispanic Heritage Month

What a better way to celebrate Hispanic Heritage month than with authentic Latin-Inspired Whisky & Tequila cocktails! Not that we need an excuse to celebrate la cultura hispana that we love so much, but when the cocktails sound this tasty – we just had to give them a try!

Tequila: 

As Mexico’s original luxury craft tequila, Don Julio is proud to celebrate with a toast to Mexico with this La Bandera Tricolor cocktail! Made with Tequila Don Julio 70, the world’s first crystal añejo tequila (and best-selling tequila in Mexico), this fresh-flavored cocktail is the perfect choice to honor Mexico!
