Tequila can be enjoyed year round, but summer is the season it really shines. Corzo’s Silver Tequila is a great tequila: light and clean. I admit I’m not much of a straight tequila drinker myself (although a friend was able to detect the “tropical fruit and peppery spice” finish that Corzo promises on its website. So, I chose to see how Corzo stood up in my favorite tequila drink: the Margarita. The Corzo stands up really well in a Margarita. It blends smoothly and certainly gets the job done.
A warning to the wallet conscious, though. Corzo is definitely a luxury liquor. My tequila loving friend was very surprised when I pulled out the bottles (and very, very grateful). At 100% Agave, this tequila is the real deal. The spirit is available in three varieties: CORZO® Silver, “clear in color with a dry, light-to medium-bodied palate,” at $47.99, CORZO® Reposado, “with warm hints of a white oak and a custard finish,” at $52.99, and CORZO® Anejo, “the perfect tequila for full-bodied sipping,” at $56.99.
You can find more information about purchasing Corzo Silver at www.corzo.com. They also recommend the Corzo Bliss, to “Add a burst of color and fresh fruit flavor to the menu. Created by New York City mixologist Jonathan Pogash.” Here’s the recipe for a bright and cheerful cocktail for summer sipping:
The CORZO Bliss
2 parts Corzo Silver Tequila
3/4 parts Domaine de Canton Ginger Liqueur
5 one-inch chunks of watermelon
5-7 mint leaves
1. In a mixing glass, muddle the watermelon and mint.
2. Then add remaining ingredients and shake well with ice.
3. Strain into a chilled cocktail glass.
4. Garnish with a watermelon cube and mint leaves.
Sounds refreshing, no?
