    REPOSADO PALOMA

    Want a refreshing drink that's perfect all year round? Step up your classic Paloma cocktail by using IXÁ Reposado Tequila which adds an extra 'nuttiness' and depth.The Paloma is one of the most popular tequila cocktails and is delightfully restorative and sophisticated, complimenting spicy Mexican food perfectly.Once you've mastered this cocktail recipe, try experimenting with the amount of agave syrup. For a skinny cocktail, you can leave out the syrup entirely as the grapefruit and lime juice, together with the FRUITLAB Orange liqueur, might make it sweet enough for your taste.

    MEZCAL MARGARITA

    Add a splash of smokiness to a margarita with mezcal. We recommend this cocktail if you love margaritas but are also a mezcal fan who enjoys the hint of smoke.We've heard that the deep rich flavor makes the drink taste strong but the alcohol level is about the same as a standard 'rita. We love this combo of smooth, mellow IXÁ Silver tequila, with the tartness of lime and the earthiness of mezcal.Did you know margarita's are one of the most popular cocktails in the United States and tequila is the spirit of choice in our home State, California? With all that drinking, it's good to understand the terms. What's the difference between tequila and mezcal? When it comes down to semantics; tequila is a type of mezcal but here's an easy way to understand the major differences:Both are made with agave but tequila has more specific regulations Tequila can only be produced from Blue Weber agave (agave tequilana) mainly in the Jalisco region of Mexico Mezcal can be made with many more types of agave and the geographic territories are widerWhen choosing mezcal look for a producer who uses traditional methods: roasting the agave hearts in a pit to impart the unique sweet and smoky flavor.Pair this Mezcal Margarita with any Oaxacan foods especially mole, pisole and tlayuda. If you're up for it: fried chapulines (crickets) are the perfect crunchy drinking snack.

    THE GRIFFITH

    Officially LA's favorite cocktail, The Griffith is an acclaimed award winner. Created in 2014, it evokes the flavors of Los Angeles as it's deep and complex (like a Hollywood actor), fresh (like the breeze off Santa Monica Pier) and unforgettable (like the first time you land at LAX).The Griffith Cocktail is designed to work with freshly prepared food and is the perfect drink to hand your home chef while they prepare a masterpiece. If possible, use local lemons and cucumbers grown in season.You'll like The Griffith Cocktail because it's sweet and fresh with a little bit of a bite.  Here's Melkon's take on the drink: ‘Many great cities have signature cocktails. It's time for Los Angeles to create a drink to call its own, something that reflects the local culture that we can savor with friends and share with visitors.’
