Hello Summer time and its long evenings! Perfect for refreshing fruit cocktail recipes.
The list of ingredients in it is a reminder of everything we love to help us unwind on a sizzling summer day.
I’ve been experimenting with Patron tequila for the last few weeks and love the smoothness of it in drinks like this.
Veracruzana Cocktail – Perfect Summer Fruit Drink
The recipe combines Patron tequila, pineapple, fresh basil, and agave nectar for a refreshing drink to enjoy with friends.
It’s easy to make and can be easily multiplied for a crowd, when you want a big pitcher of it!
If you like Patron, too, be sure to check out my El Diablo cocktail. It uses Patron with Ginger beer and creme de cassis.
