Savor the End of Summer with Refreshing Cocktails
Savor the summer before the Fall air takes us from cool cocktails to warm mugs. It always seems summer is over before it starts, but before the sun officially sets on the season, we recommend sipping a refreshing cocktail from Los Arango Tequila, Tequila Corralejo, Seagram’s Vodka, Cutwater Spirits and Tanteo Tequila!
Los Arango Tequila
Originally crafted to honor Jose Doroteo Arango, better known as Pancho Villa, for defending his people against the tyrants in the Mexican Revolution, Los Arango was born in his family name. Today, we continue to honor this triumphant moment in Mexican history throughout every batch of Los Arango tequila.
It is made from 100% Blue Weber Agave, harvested just steps away from the Hacienda Corralejo where it’s fired in clay ovens and fermented with a specialty yeast strain. It’s then double distilled, bottled in blown glass, and hand finished with premium leather, metal, and wood accents all onsite at the Hacienda.
