Patron Silver 1.75LRegular price $169.99
If you are in the mood for a quality tequila that’s smooth and tasty, then Patron Silver maybe the answer to your needs. Handcrafted and a blend of two very differently produced triple distilled tequilas – one made using a traditional tahona and fermented with agave fibers, the other made using a modern roller shredder, this quality product is sure to meet your tequila needs.
Patron Silver tequila is crystal clear in appearance yet is reported to offer faint citrus, pineapple, lavender, white pepper, and cinnamon aromas. Light and fabulously clean with invigorating peppery spice, its pleasing herbaceous core and slight notes of marzipan and sugar provides a great balance between citrus fruit and cooked agave.
Some of the best cocktails are made with tequila such as the iconic cocktail “Tequila Sunrise” with its fruity sweetness, and tequila is also a great alternative to the famous vodka based Bloody Mary which when made with tequila is called a Bloody Maria and is a fabulous addition to any brunch gathering.
But the cocktail that tequila is most famous for is the traditional and frozen margarita. While the history of the margarita is uncertain, it has been claimed by Carlos “Danny” Herrera, owner of a Tijuana restaurant Rancho La Gloria, that he invented the drink in 1938 after being inspired by a picky dancer, Marjorie King, who was allergic to all spirits except tequila but did not like to drink the spirit neat.
Mariano Martinez, a Mexican American entrepreneur, invented the first frozen margarita. He created a frozen margarita machine in 1971, which changed the history of the margarita forever. The machine was adapted from a soft serve ice cream machine in effort to keep the large volume of blended margaritas ordered in his restaurant and has since taken the world by storm.
