Mexican Independence Day which falls on Sunday, September 16th this year and it’s quite an important holiday in Mexican culture.
Whether you are in Mexico or not, you can celebrate the day and the close of summer with this Dolores cocktail from Suerte Tequila. It’s a delicious lime, tamarind and ginger beer cocktail we are happy to sip, no matter the holiday.
Suerte makes their single-distillery tequila by slow–roasting and crushing agave in the highlands of Jalisco, Mexico. All of their bottles are 100% tahona, which means each roasted piña is slowly crushed under large stones to release its juices, rather than being hastily shredded. So you know it’s an authentic tequila to celebrate an imporant holiday.
