Thirsty Thursdays: The Patriot's Plata

May 15, 2014

The Patriot's Plata is a sweet drink that compliments your favorite barbecue dishes.  Silver tequila (tequila blanco) is shaken with pineapple juice, lime juice and agave nectar to create a sweet and tangy cocktail. If you prefer your cocktail to be icy during the summertime, use frozen pineapple juice instead.  The Patriot's Plata pairs deliciously with tacos, barbecued chicken, and even steak.

Patriot’s Plata

1 ½ parts Hornitos® Plata Tequila
¾ part Lime Juice
¾ part Pineapple Juice
¼ part Agave
Pinch of Cilantro leaves

Add all ingredients to a shaker with ice. Shake and strain into a coupe glass.
