Whether you plan on watching The 63rd Annual Primetime Emmy Awards this weekend with friends or by yourself be sure to add a fun twist to the evening by treating yourself to one of these theme cocktails from Sauza Tequila. As a huge fan of HBO’s “Boardwalk Empire” (shout out to Nucky Johnson!) I think it’s safe to say that I’ll be sipping on “The Prohibition” tomorrow night.
The Prohibition (Inspired by “Boardwalk Empire”)
1 can Sauza® Silver Tequila
1 can Frozen Limeade
1 bottle Light Beer
1 can Water
Lime Wheel for garnish
Pour limeade and beer into a pitcher with ice. Fill limeade can 2/3 with Sauza® Silver Tequila and pour into pitcher. Add a can of water, stir and enjoy.
The Mamarita (Inspired by the moms of “Modern Family”)
1 ½ parts Sauza® Silver Tequila
½ part Cabernet Sauvignon
1 part DeKuyper® Triple Sec
