September 16th marks Mexican Independence Day, and there’s no better way to celebrate Mexican culture than with a selection of premium Tequila cocktails.
Rejoiced by Mexicans around the globe, it is the anniversary of the country’s independence from Spain. To commemorate this day of freedom, Cazcabel Tequila, a range of premium and authentic tequilas that have just launched in Australia, has shared its best cocktail recipes.

Blessed by Don Cazcabel, the mythical Mexican curador and “Snakeman” of the Jalisco Mountains, Cazcabel’s range includes Blanco, Coffee, Reposado and Honey tequilas.
Cazcabel Blanco is a spirit fashioned from sun-baked blue weber agave from the heart of the Jalisco region. For those wanting an espresso hit, Cazcabel Coffee blends in a sweet hit of luxury coffee to its earthy agave base. 
For something sweeter, Cazcabel Honey – one of the world’s first honey tequilas, is rich and sweet with beautiful notes of warm honey. Another Mexican favourite, Cazcabel Reposado, is rested in American oak barrels for nine to eleven months and balances the beautiful, clean and earthy agave flavour of the double distilled Blanco with the complex but subtle aromas of toasted oak.

So, whether you’re after a twist on Mexico’s national drink, the Paloma, a passionfruit take on the beloved margarita, or you fancy something a little sweeter, Cazcabel has a cocktail recipe to please every taste palette this Mexican Independence Day. So, raise a glass and celebrate the country’s rich heritage with cocktails that are packed with flavour, yet easy to make!
