No need to say I love mojitos. If there is a cocktail Olympus, I have no doubt mojitos have a place there (alongside the Martini, the Manhattan, and the sexy Cosmopolitan). My favorite mojito is the classic one: mint leaves muddled with sugar and lime juice that you shake with white rum and abundant crushed ice, strain in a tall glass with ice, top off with club soda and garnish with a mint sprig.
HELLO Mr. Lifeguard! I love Sauza because they keep making all of these amazing videos featuring really hot guys making yummy drinks for us ladies. It's a genius idea, and also, refreshing, because how many millions of commercials have we seen exploiting hot female bodies to sell a product? Answer: A billion.
On the other hand, ads featuring sexy men aimed at women are few and far between, so we have to take what we can get chicas. AmIright?Continue Reading >
Never before a cocktail had such a perfect name. Corazón has everything a cocktail needs to succeed: a superb liquor, the sweetness of real maple syrup, the citrus of freshly squeezed lime juice, and the crispy flavor of fresh raspberry. Raspberry also brings the spectacular color that makes this concoction so vibrant, exciting, and the perfect drink for Valentine's Day.
Today's cocktail is the classic Cosmopolitan with a Latino twist. Instead of vodka and Grand Marnier, I made it whit white rum and a rum and orange liqueur. This is an elegant and very sensual drink, which is my signature welcome cocktail. Cheers!

If you loved the watermelon keg with agua fresca (watermelon juice) that we featured this summer, then you're also going to LOVE this amazing pumpkin keg!
It's a great and creative idea to celebrate Halloween or just the Autumn season. Plus, you can make it kid-friendly by taking the insides of the pumpkin and making a pumpkin juice, which comes directly out of the Harry Potter books! I bet your kids will love that and they'll love it even more when they're pouring it out of the pumpkin keg. The best part, though, is that you can make it with your kids for an afternoon of fun, creativity, and delicious pumpkin juice that the whole family with enjoy this Fall.
