5 Partida cocktail recipes to beat the last of the summer heat

Posted on: September 5th, 2013 by Amy Martin No Comments

Even though fall is right around the corner, there seems to be no indication of high temps leaving the Valley anytime soon. While we still have an excuse to sip on summery cocktails by the pool, try one of these Partida Tequila recipes to cool off with.

Calorie count in cocktails can be very high… especially if you’re fond of those ‘drinkable dessert’ concoctions. The Partida Margarita comes in at roughly 200 calories less than traditional margaritas as it’s made without any secondary liquor (like triple sec, containing at least 100 calories per ounce), no garnish and no salt. Try it for yourself!
