 And the winner is...

This year's Patrón Margarita of the Year had a few serious contenders, but none more so than the delightfully delicious Coralina Margarita. With red wine and hibiscus flavors, this pink drink is made with Patrón Reposado and Patrón Citrónge for a sweet, citrusy, perfectly balanced margarita.

Try one for yourself!

Combine Patrón Reposado, Patrón Citrónge Orange, simple syrup and lime juice in a shaker; add ice and shake vigorously. Strain into a chilled cocktail coupe rimmed with sugar-salt rim. Carefully float red wine on the surface of the cocktail.

*Sugar-salt rim: Pulverize .25 cup dried hibiscus in a spice grinder. Add .25 cup sugar and .25 cup kosher salt and pulse until combined.
