National Tequila Day: Summer Cocktails with Sauza Tequila [Sponsored]
It’s Summer time AND today is National Tequila day so today drinking a tequila cocktail is practically a two for one. It’s super hot here in Florida, 95 every day to be exact and Tequila is my go to spirit of the Summer so i’ll definitely be mixing some up. I’m a huge fan of tequila with citrus, it brings out the flavors best for me so I’ll be mixing with crisp and fresh fruits. I was almost ashamed to admit my liquor cabinet was a little low in tequila but thankfully our partners at Sauza Tequila sent a few samples our way and the crisis was averted. Along with their Blue Silver and Gold tequila they sent 3 cocktail recipes to try so we spent this past Saturday mixing up drinks with our neighbors and they were ALL a hit. My personal favorite is the Paloma, a classic tequila cocktail that is hugely underrated. So while everyone is throwing down margaritas this Summer, try one of these instead!
