Celebrate National Tequila Day with three simple cocktails to make at home

ByThe Cocktail Lovers


Looking for a simple yet downright delicious drink to shake up at home on National Tequila Day? These three will do the job just nicely. Created by Jared Schmidt, Giulia Cuccurullo and Allan Suarez, three global finalists in this year’s Patrón Perfectionists cocktail competition, each recipe was created during lockdown. Patrón tequila was used as a base, natch but here’s the beauty, the remaining ingredients had to be things they had in their respective cupboards, without needing to leave the house to go grocery shopping – hence calling it the Patrón Pantry Challenge.

Easy enough for anyone to make, the featured recipes, together with videos and shopping list, can all be found at the Patrón Brand Store at
