Cocktails: „Margarita of the Year 2017“ by Patrón Tequila

Auf der von Patrón Tequila am International Margarita Day, am 22. Februar, ins Leben gerufenen Suche nach dem „Margarita of the Year 2017“ hatten es sieben Kreationen von genauso vielen Bartendern aus aller Welt in die engere Auswahl geschafft. Die drei vielversprechendsten Drinks kamen in ein Voting, das schließlich den „Coralina Margarita“ von Riesler Morales in Mexico City zum „Margarita of the Year 2017“ und Sieger kürte. Ihm folgen Shaun Gordon aus Atlanta in den USA mit dem „High Plains Riser Margarita“ und Sophie Bratt aus London mit dem „English Garden Margarita“ auf das Treppchen.
