September 15th kicks off Hispanic Heritage Month and DeLeon Tequila is helping you celebrate with these hand-selected cocktails.
Hispanic Heritage Month is upon us and Sean “Diddy” Combs and his brand DeLeón Tequila are inviting you to celebrate with them. For the occasion, DeLeón has curated three special cocktails sure to activate your taste buds,
The DeLeón Pasíon Martini, DeLeón Cafécito Con Leche, and DeLeón Reposado Blood Orange Paloma. The month-long observance and celebration of the history, culture, and contributions of Spain, Mexico, the Caribbean, Central, and South American countries, is something close and dear to Sean Combs.
All three cocktails are crafted with award-winning DeLeón Tequilas. The DeLeón Pasíon Martini is made from DeLeón Tequila Blanco and its vanilla syrup and hibiscus pairing is the perfect transition into autumn. A true Latin American classic, the cafe con Leche is given a makeover with the DeLeón Cafécito Con Leche, which adds chilled hot chocolate, tequila, and espresso beans for garnish – truly a drink that can be enjoyed day or night. Finally, the blood orange color and freshly squeezed juices used in the making of the DeLeón Reposado Blood Orange Paloma will signal autumn and provide the warmth needed for colder days to come. The latter two are made from DeLeón Tequila Reposado which gives them complex flavors.
