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!
