The holidays are rapidly approaching and that means several things: holiday parties, family get-togethers, bowl games and fun! Now if you took a look at my grocery list for holiday parties you’d likely see the usual suspects: beer, wine, etc. but usually not tequila. However, Tequila Partida has created four cookie themed cocktails inspired by holiday treats to get you and your guests in a festive mood this holiday season. Guess who/what just got invited to my party and added to the list?
Partida was recently nominated for the second year as Best Distiller of the Year for Wine Enthusiast’s Wine Star Awards, its an ultra-premium Tequila made from 100 percent blue agave from the Tequila Valley Region in Mexico. Rated higher than any other Tequila brand in a recent taste test conducted by The Academy of Tequila–the official Tequila tasting board of Mexico–Partida produces four unique, premium Tequilas:
- Blanco ($50) Clean and crisp, unaged tequila, with a floral aroma blended with notes of citrus, fresh herbs and tropical fruit. Partida Blanco is used in the Chocolate Peppermint Cookie and Toasted Macaroon.
- Reposado ($58) aged for six months in one-pass Jack Daniels American Oak barrels producing a light amber color. It is smooth and rich with a touch of sweetness. On the nose it has hints of chocolate, vanilla, hazelnut and almonds. Partida Reposado is showcased in the Sugar Cookie. (that sounds so good)
- Anejo($67) aged for 18 months in one-pass Jack Daniels American Oak barrels and tastes of soft honey fruit with flavors of spices and dried fruits. Partida Anejo is mixed to create the Seven Layer Cookie.
- Elegante Extra Anejo ($350) aged 36-40 months in selected one-pass Jack Daniels American Oak barrels. The aging process creates notes of dark chocolate and dried fruit with a hint of vanilla.
