The Story Behind The PATRÓN® Jalisco Lion

In the Jalisco Lion, bartender Haley Traub has expertly combined PATRÓN® Silver’s smooth mouthfeel and clean citrus flavors with apricot liqueur, creating a seasonal twist on the beloved Margarita. Traub also adds a small amount of cane syrup and lemon juice, which adds rich caramel notes and a hint of brightness to round out the recipe. Shaken with ice and strained into a double rocks glass with a large ice cube, the drink is topped with an orange half-moon and freshly grated cinnamon.
