Hornitos Tequila for the 4th of July!
Coyne PR

Tequila on the 4th of July? Yes, it's actually perfect! When you're crafting cocktails to go with the picnic foods like deviled eggs, barbeques, steamed crabs, grilled meats, 7 layer bean dips, chili, etc., you need a drink that stands up to the powerful flavors . . . but is tasty on its own. Hornitos to the rescue! I was happy to be hosted to experience it.

Definitely consider bringing a bottle to that gathering you have been invited to this weekend. It's sure to be appreciated and you'll just add to the fun that's taking place. Think about it: just standing there as the one with the bottle everybody wants is a crazy-good way to meet new people!

This is what they say about it:

Plata

Untouched by wood barrels, unmarked by aging, our crystal clear Plata is the purest expression of 100% agave flavor. Its floral, herbal notes take you by surprise; it's beautiful, mischievous, sexy, and tastier than we have any right to talk about.

I experienced it as very, very smooth, with light, bright notes and a hint of almond. It has no harshness and is slightly warming upon swallowing.

Here's a recipe celebrating the 4th of July:

Strawberry Fireworks

  • 3 parts Hornitos® Plata Tequila
  • Handful of fresh strawberries
  • Juice from 1 lime
  • 2 teaspoons superfine sugar
  • Fresh pepper
  • 1 cup club soda

Preparation: Put strawberries in a small pitcher and mash to your desired consistency. Add juice, club soda, Hornitos® Plata and combine along with 4 good grinds from the pepper mill. Fill 2 glasses halfway with ice and divide drink among glasses.
