With Super Bowl XLIX today, check out these cocktail recipes created by Jaime Salas, Milagro Tequila Brand Ambassador, which are perfect for sipping on game-day.
The Blonde Juan is a refreshing mix of tequila, peach syrup and fresh lemon juice, topped with the classic game-day beverage of choice, beer.
