These Patrón Ruby Spritzer cocktails make for a wonderfully refreshing, jewel-toned drink perfect for the holiday season. This post is created in partnership with Drizly and Patrón.
With so many memories and traditions at play during the season, changing things up feels daunting. There are certain expectations about what ornaments are going to go on the tree, what albums get a spot on the turntable, and what Christmas cookies to bake. To keep the holiday from getting staid, though, it’s nice to change things up where you can.
One aspect of holiday revelry that’s easy to switch up is the holiday cocktail. There’s not much surprise in the holiday cocktail standards – bourbon and rum figure heavily, as do sweet mixers like egg nog and cider. Leaving these behind is a great way to make a celebratory cocktail that’s truly memorable. And since winter is the peak of citrus season and tequila is the perfect complement to citrus, a lively cocktail featuring freshly squeezed citrus and the bite of tequila is an ideal, unexpected counterpoint to cookies and nog.
Happily, the Patrón Ruby Spritzer blends the brightness of lemon juice with pomegranate juice and tequila for a jewel-toned cocktail that’s just right for the season. Patrón Silver Tequila is a smooth drinking tequila that’s perfect for mixing into cocktails. It also makes a fantastic gift for hosts or friends. Add in the mixers and citrus for the Ruby Spritzer, and you have a thoughtful gift that everyone can enjoy.
