Patrón listened to the people and crowned the Coralina Margarita – created by Mexico City bartender Riesler Morales – as the 2017 “Margarita of the Year.
Riesler wanted to craft a cocktail that had the simplicity and elegance of a classic Margarita, yet the interesting and unexpected ingredients that married so nicely with Patrón tequila. The Coralina Margarita was inspired by an ocean sunset, combining the oaky notes of Patrón Reposado, perfectly balanced with the citrusy flavors of Patrón Citrónge Orange, together with red wine and hibiscus.
