Tequila, Tequila, Tequila

Tequila, Tequila, Tequila!

With today commemorating the nectar of the agave gods, my friends at Patrón sent over some tasty cocktail recipes. While you think to yourself, “It’s Friday. The weekend is SO close …” I encourage you to just throw caution to the wind and go get yourself some Patrón. Consider this your invitation to play with your neglected in-home bar.

Invite some friends. It’s already the weekend in your head anyway
