Three Amigos con Herradura
We're not going to lie to you - currently, Herradura is our favorite tequila in the blanco category (we haven't actually tried their reposado or other bottlings). We tried it this summer and fell in love with it with a quickness - it tastes great, mixes well, and doesn't make our wallet bleed. That's why we're excited to try the drink recipe we just heard about, Three Amigos con Herradura.
It was put together to celebrate Mexico's Independence Day on September 16; we'll probably just mix up a few glasses and celebrate with those other Three Amigos we love so much.
Oh, and ps - sip, don't shoot.
This authentic Mexican drink embodies the three colors of the Mexican flag – green, white and red. It also represents the traditional style of enjoying tequila – straight! However, it’s not a shot; it’s for sipping. Three Amigos con Herradura consists of a shot glass of fresh lime juice, a shot glass of premium Tequila Herradura and a shot glass of fresh and flavorful sangrita, all enjoyed separately. What better way to celebrate Mexico’s Independence Day than with a traditional and patriotic Mexican beverage.
