‘Just Because Day’ with Chambord

Did you know that today, August 27th, is “Just Because Day”? It is a day to embrace the little pleasures in life, for no reason at all. Eat dessert before dinner; sing loudly into a hairbrush to Queen; binge watch Outlander while eating a pint of ice cream. Personally, this sounds awfully like everyday to me, but hey I’ll take this opportunity to celebrate regardless. One of the best ways to observe the holiday is with a decadent cocktail. Lucky for us, my friends at Chambord have sent me some fun cocktails to share with you. There’s no better day …

Patrón’s Platinum Margarita

We have been on a cocktail and wine streak lately, so why mess up a good thing?! Let’s continue our good fortune of fantastic drinks with a ridiculously decadent recipe from Patrón.  My lovely friends at the company have sent me today’s physics-bending cocktail and I simply couldn’t wait to share it with you all. Personally, I’ve never seen anything quite like it. Created in NYC by the head mixologist, Rael Petit, at Delilah, this beauty comes with a whooping $100 price tag. Yeah, you heard me right… 100 buckaroos, my friends.  At this point, it’s natural to wonder who …

Patrón Tequila Margarita of the Year – Part 1

There are some contests that just seem like a waste of time and resources, like professional hotdog eating. Seriously, why would you dunk a perfectly good hotdog in a bucket of water and try to eat as many as you can in as little time as possible?! Useless. Then there are the contests that actually accomplish something spectacular… like Patrón Tequila’s annual Margarita of the Year contest. Pitting some of the world’s best mixologists against each other to create the best tasting margarita recipe?! Whoever came up with this idea is clearly a genius. Last year I personally introduced you …

Well calm your yearning heart, I’ve got your Valentines libations covered. I present to you the Coconut Lingonberry Margarita. A traditionally prepared margarita, the cocktail is initially light and sweet. But don’t be deceived, it ends with a complex and deceptively …

Rosa Picante named Patrón Margarita of the Year

Growing up in Los Angeles amongst family and friends of Mexican heritage, Cinco de Mayo was always one of my favorite holidays of the year. The city lit up with cultural pride, amazing food, endless dancing, and, of course, margaritas. Although it’s been years since I’ve celebrated the joyous holiday in L.A., I still make a point to raise a glass (preferably a salt-rimmed one) to the occasion wherever I am. And since I have had my share of the classic, ice-blended margarita, I’m always on the lookout for innovated takes on the traditional drink to serve as my Cinco de Mayo centerpiece. …
