Last weekend I was invited to attend Latinista Fashion Week. It was a fun night of cocktails, manicures, salsa dancing and fashions presented by latin designers. Award-winning Tequila Semental was sponsoring cocktails, and I was really impressed not only with their tequila, but with the tasty cocktail they had for us. They used their Tequila Semental Silver in a mixture of Grapefruit soda and lime. The 2008 World Spirits Competition winner is a silver tequila crystal clear in color and tasting of roasted tropical fruits, peppers, vanilla bean and spice. Keep reading for the recipe of “The Latinista”, a refreshing and simple cocktail perfect to make for friends this long Labor Day weekend. Cheers and have oh-so-much-fun!
