Tequila Primavera

Celebrate the beginning of Spring with a refreshing and bright cocktail! This Mexican-inspired cocktail not only tastes delicious, but is good for you too! It’s made with natural agave nectar, freshly squeezed orange juice, and nutrient-packed Yerba Mate-infused tequila. Yerba Mate is an herbal tea that contains an impressive amount of antioxidants (quercetin, theobromine, and theophylline), vitamins (vitamin C and B vitamins), and minerals (manganese, potassium, and zinc). It also contains a good amount of caffeine, but won’t give you the jitters. Cheers!
