Partida Tequila's fiesta 75 recipe breathes new life into an old favorite

See also

Jacques Bezuidenhout, bartender ambassador for Partida Tequila, created this twist on the classic French 75 cocktail for the holidays. The French 75 is usually made with simple syrup, lemon juice, gin, and Champagne. Here, Bezuidenhout uses tequila instead of gin and adds açaí liqueur for a Latin-inspired flavor.

This cocktail is perfect for a casual holiday get-together, but even when the holidays are over, it's a great cocktail for hosting a boozy weekend brunch with friends at home.
