ATOTONILCO, Jalisco, Mexico, April 30, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- The Margarita is one of the most popular cocktails in the U.S., and there's no better time to enjoy one than on Cinco de Mayo, and all summer long!
Perhaps part of the Margarita's popularity is due to just how easy it is to make – it's simply a combination of tequila, orange liqueur and lime juice. But of course, to mix a truly delicious and enjoyable Margarita, the quality of the ingredients makes all the difference. In addition to choosing a top-quality, 100-percent agave tequila like Patron, don't overlook the equally important orange liqueur. Patron Citronge is a high-quality, pure and natural Mexican orange liqueur made from premium oranges.
"If you're making a Margarita, then naturally you'll want to use an authentic orange liqueur that's produced and bottled in Mexico," says Francisco Alcaraz, Patron tequila's master distiller who developed the recipe for Patron Citronge, and the entire portfolio of Patron tequilas. "We created Patron Citronge to mix beautifully with Patron tequila for Margaritas and any number of other premium cocktails."
Patron Citronge is characterized by its clear, bright color, and aroma of fresh, mature blend of sweet and bitter orange with floral notes. With its crisp and fresh orange flavor, Patron Citronge not only mixes perfectly in Margaritas, martinis and other cocktails, it also adds a distinctive flavor to gourmet cooking recipes, sauces and desserts.
The recently updated cork-finished frosted bottle, available in 375ml, 750ml and 1Liter sizes, was designed to align with the visual cues of the full family of Patron products.
Patron Citronge is distilled at 80 proof (40 percent alcohol by volume).
Simply Perfect in every way, Patron tequila is an ultra-premium luxury white spirit that's delicious on the rocks, and mixes flawlessly into most any cocktail. From the highest-quality Weber Blue agave plants grown in the highlands of Jalisco, Mexico, to the centuries-old distillation process, to the signed, handcrafted glass bottles, Patron tequila is produced with unparalleled attention to detail. Brands in the tequila portfolio consist of Gran Patron Burdeos, Gran Patron Platinum, Patron Silver, Patron Reposado, Patron Anejo, and Patron XO Cafe and Patron XO Cafe Dark Cocoa (tequila and coffee liqueurs).
