The Margarita is one of the most popular cocktails in the U.S., and there’s no better time to enjoy one than on Cinco de Mayo, and all summer long! The Margarita is a simple drink made of a combination of tequila, orange liqueur and lime juice. But of course, to mix a truly delicious and enjoyable Margarita, the quality of the ingredients makes all the difference. In addition to choosing a top-quality, 100-percent agave tequila like Patron, don’t overlook the equally important orange liqueur. Patron Citronge is a high-quality, pure and natural Mexican orange liqueur made from premium oranges. Patron Citronge is characterized by its clear, bright color, and aroma of fresh, mature blend of sweet and bitter orange with floral notes. With its crisp and fresh orange flavor, Patron Citronge not only mixes perfectly in Margaritas, martinis and other cocktails, it also adds a distinctive flavor to gourmet cooking recipes, sauces and desserts. The recently updated cork-finished frosted bottle, available in 375ml, 750ml and 1Liter sizes, was designed to align with the visual cues of the full family of Patron products. Patron Citronge is distilled at 80 proof (40 percent alcohol by volume). Visit www.patronspirits.com.
