I wasn't sure what sipper I'd be serving on Super Bowl Sunday — that is, until I set foot at the bar of this year's Food Fête. I hadn't planned on drinking that Monday night, but at the Patrón bartender's request, I took a sip of his drink.
The cocktail was edgy, not too strong, and the perfect balance of sour and sweet. But I really fell for its hint of tropical fruit. Convinced as I was, there wasn't any mango involved; instead, it's the agave nectar and Citronge — Patrón's tequila answer to triple sec — that add some lush, equatorial flair to what would otherwise be a commonplace margarita.
