The luxury tequila brand DeLeón Tequila was launched in 2009 to an elite following in Hollywood and the U.S. music industry and purchased in 2014 by a joint venture between business mogul and international style icon, Sean Combs and the world’s largest spirits company, Diageo.
In this week’s cocktail hour we are featuring cocktail recipes featuring DeLeón Platinum Tequila.
DeLeón Platinum Tequila is a provocative Blanco with a rich, complex agave honey that is slow-fermented and twice-distilled. Exquisite highland agaves are slowly roasted in traditional ovens for a subtle taste profile with a whisper of sweet agave, citrus, warm spice and smooth vanilla on the finish. Unrivaled in finish, this Tequila Blanco is the next level. Also, with its stunning fragrance-grade glass bottle and crowning ornate closure, DeLeón Tequila is a gift that will make an impressive addition to anyone’s personal bar. A 750ml retails for $60.00.
The Spiked Cranberry Brew
The Spiked Cranberry Brew is a tart twist on the Hot Toddy. The Toddy was used as a medical prescription in the early 1800’s and many of these ‘concoctions’ are rumored to cure colds, ease flu symptoms and aid in sleeping. DeLeón’s version turns this classic upside down with hot tart
cranberry juice, fresh lemon, peeled pear, all spiced to perfection with cinnamon and nutmeg. Deleon Platinum is the perfect compliment adding a blend of warm spice to the body leaving accents of vanilla to bounce off the dry tart cranberries on the finish.
1.5 oz Deleon Platinum
6 oz of Hot Cranberry Batch
Garnish with a thin sliced of Pear (No Skin) dusted with Cinnamon
The Midnight Harvest is a spin on a modern day classic called a Penicillin, created by Sam Ross. An ode to Sasha Petraske owner of Milk & Honey who passed away in August of this year. Sasha inspired and mentored a generation of bartenders, like Sam Ross, who now operates Attaboy in place of the original Milk & Honey. The Penicillin was originally crafted with Blended Scotch, Fresh Lemon, Honey, Ginger and floated with a Peated Scotch. DeLeón’s turn replaces the scotch with our reposado and adds orange juice to brighten the cocktail. Deleon Reposado plays like a medley
bouncing off of the Orange and Honey while holding firm not letting the ginger over power. A strong robust libation.
1 1/2 oz Deleon Reposado
1/2 oz lemon
1/4 oz OJ
1/2 oz Honey/Ginger syrup
Garnish ginger candy
