The Story Behind The PATRÓN® Tremenda Tentación

Created by bartender Frankie Maldonado, the Tremenda Tentación is a spicy and seasonal variation on the classic Margarita. Enhanced with the dried fruit and vanilla notes of PATRÓN® Añejo, the drink combines grapefruit cordial, lime juice, and three dashes of Hellfire bitters. Served on the rocks with an aromatic garnish of crushed pink peppercorns and a rosemary sprig, this recipe perfectly showcases the handcrafted añejo’s range and versatility.
