Drink Recipes: Camarena Tequila Cocktails Inspired By The Upcoming Film “The Hunger Games” – LUSHWORTHY

I’ll be honest with you, I’m not very familiar with the book “The Hunger Games” is based off of but I can say that this movie looks hella good. And with a RottenTomatoes.com score that’s currently at 100% I will certainly be at my local movie theater when “The Hunger Games” is released this Friday, March 23rd. But if you find yourself a little too excited for the release of “The Hunger Games” then you may want to relax a bit with a cocktail. And I’m sure one of these “The Hunger Games” inspired cocktails from Camarena Tequila will easily do the trick. They all sound pretty delicious, but with its homemade spiced orange syrup I really need to get my hands on that “Girl On Fire” cocktail.
