Inside the latest collaboration with Alexa and PatronRead More
One of our favorite holidays of the year is coming up International Margarita Day, on February 22nd bars and restaurants will be making creative margaritas all day. Cody Goldstein of Muddling Memories will be celebrating this year with his first-ever line of cocktail fizzers that will be available at Norwood by reservation only.
What is a cocktail fizzer you may ask? Well it’s nothing you’ve ever seen before…in cocktail form that is.
Inspired by Patrón’s Margarita of the Year competition** and created by Cody Goldstein of Muddling Memories. Those who are looking to try the specialty cocktail can get one at The Potion Room at Norwood and order one fizzer for $30 or 7 for $200
The 7 flavors include: Passion Fruit + Jalapeno, Lychee + Chia Seeds, Tomato + Thyme, Celery + Elderflower, Pickled Plum + Kelp Tea, Orange Marmalade + Sherry
How is it made?
- Drop the margarita flavored cocktail fizzer into the glass filled with Patrón Tequila
- Watch as the cocktail fizzer miraculously turns from a ball into a cocktail right in your glass
- Wait for the fizzing to stop and enjoy the margarita
·The cocktail fizzer is created with real cocktail ingredients (i.e. tomato, orange, lime, etc.) and the fizzer activates once it hits the tequila
Once the cocktail fizzer completely disintegrates in your glass your margarita is ready to drink
Today Patrón announces it's newest partnership with Guillermo del Toro with a bottle pricing at $399. This partnership marks one of the first collaborations in which del Toro has engaged outside of the entertainment industry, and among a handful of partnerships carefully selected by Patrón over its long history.
The Patrón x Guillermo del Toro partnership includes 2 new bottles. one of them being a limited-edition 750ml bottle of extra añejo tequila sits upside down as the “torso”. This includes a blend of rare Patrón tequilas aged for an average of more than five years in a combination of different new and used oak barrels
While a 100ml bottle is also available with aged orange liqueur, sits on top, a skull exquisitely carved into the crystal. Complementing that tequila is the smaller bottle, a first-of-its-kind aged Patrón orange liqueur produced from aged Patrón tequila.
The blend is much different from your go to Silver Patrón, as this has a bright golden color with sweet notes of honey, raisins vanilla and oak. While the orange liqueur has a sweet aroma of citrus and French Toast.
Only a very limited number of sets were produced, and are currently available at fine spirits and liquor retailers across the country for the suggested retail price of 399.
