Halloween is past and you know what that means – its officially the Holidays (it’s never too soon to start celebrating our favorite time of the year)! DeLeón™ Tequila has fashioned two brand new seasonal cocktails to help usher in the cold weather, the Ahumando Café and Spicy Serenade. The star of both cocktails is DeLeón Tequila – unrivaled in finish and made from 100% Highland agave that is slow-fermented and twice-distilled.
There’s nothing like coffee to warm the soul on a cold winter’s day, and the Ahumando Café packs an added kick in the form of DeLeón Reposado. A marvelous twist on the classic Mexican Coffee made with tequila and Kahlua, the Ahumando Café replaces the Kahlua with pure maple syrup and a luxurious mezcal cream. The maple syrup draws out the cinnamon and butterscotch flavors of the Reposado, while the mezcal cream adds smoky depth, resulting in a warm, sweet and spicy cup of indulgence.
1.5 oz. DeLeón Reposado Tequila
1/2 oz. maple syrup
Add DeLeón Reposado and maple syrup to a glass. Fill with hot coffee and top with mezcal cream. Garnish with a mint leaf.
The Spicy Serenade is DeLeón’s love song to the daiquiri, one of the finest cocktails in modern history. DeLeón™ takes this 300 year old Cuban classic to the next level by adding a bit of Holiday comfort in the form of cinnamon and seasonal blood orange juice, and swapping rum for smooth DeLeón Platinum. The Platinum tequila shines as its crisp agave notes blend with the rich blood orange and cinnamon, creating a bold, yet uniquely light, sip.
1.5 oz. DeLeón Platinum Tequila
1/2 oz. fresh lime juice
1/4 oz. fresh blood orange juice
1/4 oz. cinnamon syrup
Add all ingredients into a martini shaker with ice. Shake thoroughly. Strain into rocks glass. Garnish with a blood orange slice.
