Patron Spirits' Patron Citrónge Lime

Patron Spirits’ Patron Citrónge Lime

Patrón Spirits has launched the first brand extension in the highly successful Patrón Citrónge liqueur line. New Patrón Citrónge Lime is an ultra-premium liqueur crafted from the highest-quality Persian limes cultivated from the Mexican states of Veracruz, Michoacán and Colima. For decades, Mexico has reigned as the premier growing region for lime, and the world’s largest producer and exporter of this savory citrus fruit. The cork-finished Patrón Citrónge Lime bottle was designed to align with the Patrón Citrónge Orange liqueur bottle. The package communicates the brand’s upscale, ultra-premium positioning, and the extended neck on the bottle also makes it easy to pour.

AMERICANO – A Classic Campari Cocktails for a nice hot day.

 

061510_campari3_54091225-1350americano

Trust me – This is not a espresso made with hot water for the coffee lover.

This is the story of the  cocktail Americano. A creation of Americans abroad and the bartenders who served them in Italy.  An Americano was first served in Gaspare Campari’s bar, Cafe Campari in The Campari region of Italy. It was the 1860s and there were plenty of American expatriates around. The drink was originally known as the “Milano-Torino” because Campari is from Milan, where Cafe Campari is located.

Campari creator Gaspare Campari was from Torino and he settled in Milan, where he created the startling orange Campari – the world’s top-selling bitters. He brought sweet vermouth with him from Torino and combined the two signature liquors into this drink, stirring them with soda water – hence the original name. The Italians soon noticed that many Americans enjoyed the cocktail. Eventually the cocktail became known as the “Americano”. The Americano is also a classic aperitif, often served before dinner to cleanse the palate and awaken the appetite.

We love the Americano too. It has a  low alcohol content, and we can easily adjust the bitterness. The bitter citrus flavor of the Campari is incredibly refreshing – a palate cleanser on a hot day. The sweet vermouth balances it out just enough with a sweet muskiness, and the soda water makes what could be a very strong and overwhelming drink into a tingling refresher for a hot evening. Serve with citrus slices.

The Americano

makes 1 cocktail

1 1/2 ounces Campari
1 1/2 ounces sweet vermouth
Club soda or seltzer
Orange slice for garnish

 

Fill up an old-fashioned tumbler with ice. You can also water this down a bit more and use a highball; we often do this when we want a long cool drink but not a lot of alcohol.

Pour the Campari and vermouth over the ice and top up with seltzer.

 

 

How sinful is our old habit- famous cocktails?

We all have our favorite Cocktails and prefered Drinks. How many Calories are within our usual Order? Compare with other popular Cocktails, maybe it’s time for a change on that old Habit.

Caipirinha  or Cachaca – 152 Calories

Brazil’s national drink beguiles American palates with its base of cachaca, a sugarcane spirit that can give off a whiff of petroleum. Add a couple of muddled limes and a splash of simple syrup and you have a complex, worthy competitor to the daiquiri. No wonder Brazilians look so good!

Image

Mojito – 161 Calories

There’s a reason the Cuban import remains so popular. Muddled mint leaves add a cool, menthol hint to a stimulating combo of white rum, lime and sugar. The lesson here: Mint is a great low cal favor booster.

White Russian – 195 Calories

Theres a reason Jeff Bridges isn’t exactly in Ironman shape in The Big Lebowski, his characters favorite cocktail is basically coffee ice cream plus booze. And the recipe we re using here is fairly modest only oz of both Kahlua and cream adding more of either will jack the calories even higher!!

 

Image

Bloody Mary – 168 Calories

The stalwart brunch cocktail is perhaps still the best savory, vegy one out there. Vodka stays out of the way, simply bringing proof to the party of succulent tomato juice, malty Worcestershire sauce, a dash of bright lime juice and the heat of a little Tabasco and pepper. The problem with this one thought, is that you rarely drink just one.

Gin and Tonic – 190 Calories

Created by British officers abroad as a vehicle for the malaria fighting effects of quinine, the classic gin and tonic remains one of the most refreshing drinks every. For more variations on the classic theme consider the summer spins on gin and tonics.

Margarita – 192 Calories

A dash of freshly squeezed lime juice highlights the agave fruit flavor of the tequila, while Cointreau supplies a nuanced, orange tinged sweetener for a juicy, addictive libation. Bonus Add all the salt you want to the rim, since there’s no calorie hit.

Now who is counting calories?
