Halloween is past and you know what that means – it’s 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.
Also, DeLeón™’s ultra-premium and luxury variants make an incredible gift, with their stunning bespoke-style bottles that will look beautiful on anyone’s personal bar. And this year, Sean “Diddy” Combs is unveiling The Combs Concierge for DeLeón™ Tequila – with a simple three step process, shoppers can buy, engrave, and send a bottle of DeLeón™ Platinum to anyone on their gifting list by visiting www.reservebar.com/DeleonTequila.
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 ½ oz. DeLeón™ Reposado Tequila
½ 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 ½ oz. DeLeón™ Platinum Tequila
½ oz. fresh lime juice
¾ oz. fresh blood orange juice
¾ oz. cinnamon syrup
Add all ingredients into a martini shaker with ice. Shake thoroughly. Strain into rocks glass. Garnish with a blood orange slice.
