Y’all! Can’t believe that we’re just a few short days away from Christmas. This year has really flown by. Just like last year and the year before that. Who’s with me? I remember being younger and desperately wishing to be older. If I only I knew that it certainly speeds up and never slows down, maybe I wouldn’t have wished for it so hard.
But of course there are perks to being able to sit at the big kid table during the Holidays. Like getting to indulge in a few adult beverages. Right? Over the years I’ve grown to be the cousin that brings cookies and a cocktail or two to our Christmas Eve functions. Which is why I’m excited to have teamed up with Patrón to craft two holiday cocktails. One for Christmas Eve and the other for New Years Eve – so stay tuned for that!
Not only is Patrón my hands down favorite tequila to use in cocktails this year’s One Liter Limited Edition bottle is quite the showstopper. And I’m already planning on ways to reuse the bottle around my apartment once it’s empty. Making it not only the perfect addition to your bar at home but also the perfect gift for those cocktail connoisseurs in your life.
So from gifting, to mixing-and-matching simply perfect cocktails this season, Patrón has you covered. The Patrón Cocktail Lab, a library of hundreds of versatile cocktail recipes developed by Patrón’s mixology team in collaboration with talented bartenders around the world, uses an interactive interface to tailor recommendations to each visitor to the site.
Now what you’ve all been waiting for. Here’s the recipe for my Grown Up Chocolate Milk perfect for Christmas Eve with the family or Christmas Day brunch with the crew. In other words, here’s the perfect way to impress friends and family alike with your bartending skills.
- 1.5 oz. Patrón Tequila
- 1.5 oz. chocolate milk
- .5 oz. cold brew coffee
- .5 oz. Patrón Citrónge Orange
- Whipped cream
- Combine tequila, coffee, chocolate milk, orange liqueur, and ice in cocktail shaker.
- Shake vigorously for 30 seconds.
- Pour into highball glass using a strainer and top with whipped cream and allspice.
- Make your own whipped cream at home by placing heavy whipping cream in a stand mixer and beating with the whisk attachment for 3-5 minutes or until peaks begin to form. Add a teaspoon or two of vanilla to sweeten the deal a bit.
