Here are Some Tequila Cocktail Recipes from Hornitos to Help You Relax a Little During the Holidays
The holiday season is known as the most wonderful time of the year, but it can also be the most stressful time of the year. Between the seemingly impossible task of finding a present for everyone on your list and searching for the perfect New Year’s plans, there will be days when all you really want is a drink in your hand.
Hornitos Tequila is giving the gift of tequila to help you unwind this holiday season. Whether you want to warm up from the cold weather with the Cinnamon Tequila Toddy, or ring in the new year with the New Year’s Sparkler, Hornitos has you covered.
Cinnamon Tequila Toddy
- 1 ½ parts Hornitos Black Barrel Tequila
- 5 parts hot water
- ¾ part cinnamon bark syrup
- ¼ part honey
- ¼ part fresh lemon juice
- 3 dashes vanilla bitters
- Cinnamon sticks
Preparation: Combine equal parts sugar and water and 3 cinnamon sticks in a saucepan and bring to a boil to create cinnamon bark syrup. Remove cinnamon sticks from the mixture and combine the remainder of the ingredients in a coffee glass. Stir and garnish with a cinnamon stick.
New Year’s Sparkler
- 1 part Hornitos® Plata Tequila
- ¾ part fresh lemon juice
- ¾ part simple syrup
- ½ fresh pineapple juice
- 1 dash Angostura® bitters
- Splash of Prosecco
Preparation: Lightly muddle 6 blueberries in a shaker. Combine remainder of ingredients except Prosecco in the shaker with ice and shake vigorously. Double strain into a champagne flute and add a splash of Prosecco. Garnish with a blueberry skewer.
Though all tequilas are made from the flesh of the Blue Agave, Hornitos® is different because Hornitos® doesn’t try to hide the true agave flavor of our tequilas, we preserve it. From inventing a unique way to make our agave-robust Reposado, breaking the rules to create crystalline Plata and going above and beyond tequila standards to make an ultra smooth and aromatic Añejo—everything we do has your taste buds in mind.
