Our Mixologist Colin Pflugradt, who has been with the SOL Cocina family since 2009, is featured on CBS Los Angeles‘ website today! Read more HERE and be sure to try the recipes below that showcase how he brings a contemporary approach to traditional Mexican drinks with his fresh-fruit margaritas and cocktails!

 

Pumpkin Spice Margarita
2 oz Don Julio tequila blanco
1/2 oz agave nectar
1 oz fresh lime juice
1 oz fresh roasted pumpkin puree
pumpkin spice
Combine all ingredients in a shaker. Shake with ice, then strain into a glass and top with a few dashes of cinnamon. Pflugradt says this drink is not too sweet and just a little spicy.

 

1921 Tea
warm English tea
1 part Grand Mariner
1 part 1921 creme Tequila
This drink is served in a snifter, perfect for fall and winter. Combine liquors to taste, and pour warm English tea to mix gently. Sip slowly.
