Easy Super Bowl Party Drink: Patron Magarita

Happy Hour: Patrón Margarita

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.

For a nuanced classic that'll score with the game-day crowd, read more.

Why use Patron in a Margarita? It's beautiful and smooth by itself, it should be enjoyed by itself. Use a lower grade Tequila for mixing. But this does sound lovely!
