This Rosemary Reposado will be the perfect signature cocktail for your Christmas party!
I was asked by my friends at Hornitos® to come up with a Christmas drink using their Reposado Tequila so I grabbed my bottle of tequila and started mixing…
It’s hard sometimes to get the right drink, find the perfect cocktail that you’re looking for…especially when your taste buds get a little dulled after 3 or 4 rounds. But I manned up and rose to the challenge .
And I think I nailed it.
The Hornitos Reposado Tequila has is aged with a reduced contact to wood. This gives the tequila a paler color and a more pronounced agave flavor than other tequilas. The flavor is great and the price can’t be beat, so if you’re looking to buy a few bottles to make a signature drink like this Rosemary Reposado, Hornitos® Reposado is the way to go.
There’s a little Brown sugar syrup mixed with pomegranate juice to sweeten up this drink, and the rosemary adds a great flavor to the tequila as your sipping it.
Add all your ingredients to a cocktail shaker filled with ice and shake it up…
Pour it into a low glass and garnish with the sprig of rosemary. Now that’s a Christmas cocktail! Red and green with a Christmas tree branch as your garnish!
I’m totally fine with just taking shots of tequila – there’s not much more that I need than a lime wedge. But if you want a drink that’s a little more festive looking and tasting this is the drink for you.
If you want to make it an a pitcher so you’re not playing bartender like me all night, go ahead and up the quantities in the recipe and pour it into a pitcher. Just place the pitcher on a bowl of ice or in an ice bucket and you’re all set.
This is a drink that everyone will love so make sure you stock up on the tequila!
