How to Have the Absolut Best Passionfruit Cocktail

When it comes to alcohol one of my go-to liquors especially around the holidays is vodka. And the only brand I trust is Absolut Vodka. Its smooth, refined taste is always a hit when entertaining/hosting friends and loved ones, something I just love doing around this time of the year. Which is why this season I'll be sharing Absolut Elyx at social gatherings. Absolut Elyx is the ultimate expressions of Absolut Vodka, which sets out to revitalize the vodka market as the world's first single estate copper crafted luxury vodka. The renowned taste of Elyx is thanks to their unique copper catalyzation process, that makes it a spirit of exceptional quality, depth, and rich silky smooth character. So in today's post, I'll be discussing why copper makes vodka better as well as a festive cocktail recipe just in time for the holiday season. 

Every drop of Absolut Elyx is produced using winter wheat grown on one single estate in Southern Sweden. The raw spirit is further rectified using a vintage copper still from 1921 which is hand operated to make their unique fine spirit. The use of the hand-operated copper still involves traditional skills and techniques known only by a select few. It is their special way in which they use copper to give Absolut Elyx that rich silky mouthfeel and extremely smooth finish. 

When it comes to sharing and having a good time with loved ones, it has always been quality over quantity. Everything from the quality of the liquor to the quality of the stemware has to be of high standard. And I just adore making more sophisticated cocktails instead of vodka n sodas in plastic cups. Even healthy ones, like this fresh and fruity cocktail recipe.

Spiced Apple Margaritas


Happy Labor Day weekend! I'm staying in town relaxing and prepping for NYFW along with brainstorming and creating content for my favorite season, fall! There's no drink quite like the margarita- whether it's frozen or on the rocks, from delicious variants like Chipotle to strawberry and more. That's why Margaritas are the #1 cocktail in the U.S., with 70% of them made from scratch in our very own homes... But there's a well-kept secret that turns an ordinary home-made margarita into an extraordinary one--Agavero Orange. Which is why I've partnered with Agavero Orange Liqueur, a tequila based liqueur that is the perfect addition to any margarita recipe. It's Gran Centenario Tequila's perfect match, and it's your dance partner, party pleaser and top-secret ingredient.With summer coming to an end, I wanted to create a fall-inspired margarita cocktail. Enter: Spiced Apple Margaritas!

Spiced Apple Margaritas

Serves 2

Ingredients:

1.5 parts Gran Centenario Plata

.75 parts Agavero Orange Liqueur

1.5 to 2 ounces apple juice

1 oz fresh orange juice (about half an orange, juiced)

Dash all spice & cinnamon

Star anise, apple & orange zest for garnish

Cinnamon/sugar/salt rim blend and garnish

1 tsp sugar

1 tsp salt

½ tsp ground cinnamon

Directions:

  1. On a small plate, use a fork to blend the sugar, salt and cinnamon. Run a wedge of orange around the top of each drinking glass, then turn the glass down at a 45-degree angle and roll the top of the glass through the cinnamon, sugar and salt blend. Fill the glasses with ice and set them aside.
  2. Fill a cocktail shaker with ice. Feel free to make 2 to 3 drinks at once. Pour in the tequilas, apple juice, orange juice, all spice, and cinnamon. Put on the lid and shake the cocktail for about 20 seconds. Strain the cocktail into the prepared glass(es) and add a star of anise if you’d like. Garnish with a slice of apple and orange zest. Cheers!

Agavero Orange Liqueur is a delicious blend of 100% agave tequila infused with orange and agave nectar. It is subtle enough for sipping, but also an ideal orange liqueur for the ultimate Margarita as it offers a robust tequila flavor coupled with the ripe citrus of Mexican oranges. So I paired the orange liqueur with Gran Centenario® Plata - it adds extra depth and character to crafted cocktails. The tequila is also delicious as a chilled shot. I paired the Tequila's with more orange and apple flavors, spicing it up with some ground all-spice and cinnamon. Lastly, I garnished the drinks with star anise, to not only enhance the flavor but to maintain a rustic sort of fall cocktail. 

What do you guys think of these spiced apple margaritas? I definitely wanted to try something different using fall-inspired ingredients. I was even thinking of a pumpkin spiced margarita, but given the fact that I don't have a blender in my kitchen at the moment, I found it to be rather more challenging to mix those kinds of ingredients together. Which is why I opted for apple and orange, the perfect combination with the Agavero Orange Liqueur and Gran Centenario Tequila. Enjoy the rest of the long weekend!
