Let’s Toast the End of Summer with These Amazing Cocktails from Hornitos Tequila

As the summer comes to an end with the telltale sign of Labor Day, enjoy your day off from work with a little help from a tequila brand that knows how to mix things up.

Here are two cocktails from Hornitos Tequila that are perfect additions to your end of summer bash – whether you want to reward yourself with a light and refreshing Coctel del Barista,or spice things up with a Spicy Paloma.

See below for recipes for these delicious cocktails:

Spicy Paloma

Hornitos tequila labor day cocktails
  • 1 ½ parts Hornitos® Black Barrel® Tequila
  • ¾ part fresh ruby red grapefruit juice
  • ¾ part fresh lime juice
  • ½ part agave syrup
  • Jalapeño
  • Grapefruit

Preparation: Lightly muddle ¼ grapefruit and 4 slices jalapeño in a shaker. Combine remainder of ingredients into the shaker over ice and shake vigorously. Strain into a rocks glass over fresh ice. Garnish with a grapefruit slice.

Their most highly awarded tequila, Hornitos® Black Barrel®, starts as a premium, aged Añejo, then spends four months in deep charred oak barrels to give it rich, smoky flavor and a golden amber color. It spends an additional two months in specially toasted barrels for more depth and distinct complexity.

Coctel del Barista

Hornitos tequila labor day cocktails
  • 1 ½ parts Hornitos® Reposado Tequila
  • 2 parts fresh brewed black tea
  • ¾ parts fresh lemon juice
  • ½ part agave syrup
  • 2 dashes Angostura® bitters
  • Lemon wheel

Preparation: Combine ingredients in a shaker with ice and shake vigorously. Strain into a highball glass over fresh ice. Garnish with a lemon wheel.

Boldly born in 1950, to celebrate the anniversary of Mexican independence, Hornitos® debuted as a Reposado, one of the first of its kind. They made Reposado decades before it became common practice, and to this day, it remains a symbol of their shot taking spirit.

Here’s to the shot takers. The ones who, like us, believe nothing great ever happens if you don’t take a chance. Because that’s #AShotWorthTaking.
