Hollatcha Minnesota summer, am I right? I love beating the heat with easy cocktail recipes with tequila. And what better tequila than Patrón?
My friends on Facebook are always spying on my account, because they know I’m better and faster than their weather apps. I’m on top of everything, especially severe weather. So it’s no surprise that when the sirens went off last week, everyone was ready for my report. Because, I mean, that storm even surprised me. Minnesota is crazy like that.
You know what else is crazy about Minnesota? We’re called the Land of 10,000 Lakes, but in reality, there are well over 20,000 lakes in Minnesota. You can find one in just about every town, and there is definitely one where I live.
Next week I am heading out to one of the most famous lakes in Minnesota: Lake Minnetonka, to the Cambria Music Festival so I can Patrón The Summer in style. Patrón has reimagined over 30 cocktails from key cities around the globe, and easy cocktail recipes like this Tequila Bootleg are sure to make you happy.
If you’re from Minnesota like me, you’ll love it even more. Because, Minnesota. And if you aren’t from here, get ready to explore a new drink that’s bound to become your new fave.
You should definitely come to the Cambria Festival and hit up the mobile lab with me! I’ll be hanging out in my Instagram Stories while I’m there, so if you aren’t local, you better tune in on the 17th! SO EXCITED.
