ESPOLON SILVER  

The perfect margarita starts with the perfect tequila ESPOLON SILVER is made with 100% Pure de Agave. It has a crisp clean taste with hints of citrus made the old fashioned way. The Agave is cooked in brick ovens which keeps it sweeter. I would also recommend paring this with FRESHIES MARGARITA MIX which is made right here is Colorado and made with real limes, lemons, and a splash of orange. Then to finish off this great paring of alcohols I would top the margarita with GRAND MARNIER, which is an orange liqueur made from aged Cognac and tropical oranges which gives it a unique flavor. The perfect margarita is 1.5 oz of ESPOLON silver tequila, .5 oz of GRAND MARNIER and 5 oz of FRESHIES blend together or serve over ice and garnish with a lime. CHEERS!!!  Duane

CAPROCK GIN

from Peak Spirits in Hotchkiss, Colorado is made with “pure snowmelt from the Caprock formation,” and organic wheat, apples, and a blend of twelve botanicals distilled together in the traditional London style. The nose is slightly sweet and floral with pronounced juniper. The flavor is pleasantly complex with delicious spices, great floral flavors and apples that really come through. I highly recommend Caprock Gin straight up or the traditional martini way which is 1 oz. Caprock Gin, 1 oz. Sweet Vermouth, 1 dash of Orange Bitters and Garnish with a Lemon Twist & Enjoy! CHEERS! Nathan

Made with real tequila, triple sec and natural flavors this is your very own “beach in a bottle” ready to drink, all you need is ice, salt, a glass and a friend or two.

COOLE SWAN IRISH CREAM LIQUEUR 

is the world’s first “super premium” Irish cream liqueur. Coole Swan uses fresh cream from Ireland’s dairy lands and is blended with single malt Irish whiskey; comprised of notes of white and dark chocolate, Madagascar vanilla, and rich cocoa from Cote d’ Lvoire. Serve ice-cold in a frozen glass, or for even something different like with Coca Cola, for an unusual float. It’s a Perfect choice for the upcoming holiday just add a little green for St. Patrick’s Day!! Sean
