I recall jokingly saying that when I landed my first tequila collaboration I would feel like Chicks And Salsa would have really “made it.” With us always being conscious of our diet, cutting calories on the weekends by bidding farewell to wine was a good first step. But honestly, for a few years now, Tequila has been our go to liquor of choice and now thanks to a fellow #BossBabe we are happy to share with you FINO Tequila, Chicago’s best pour!
The term FINO, in Spanish, means fine, smooth and high-quality. FINO is also an acronym for FAILURE IS NOT an OPTION. Owners, Jana and Sonali truly believe in this philosophy and it is stemmed from their exceptional dedication to their brand, FINO TEQUILA.
In honor of one of our favorite collaborations, I bring to you a few simple recipes.
This recipe is dedicated to my good friend, Maria, that introduced me to it over a decade ago!!
1 Part Fino Blanco or Reposado
3 Parts Grapefruit Soda
Stir and Serve over ice!
1 Part Fresh Lime Juice
2 Parts Cointreau
3 Parts FINO Tequila (Blanco)
Shaken with Ice and poured in a chilled glass.
2 oz FINO Blanco or FINO Reposado
1 oz Fresh Lime Juice
1/2 oz Simple Syrup
Pour over ice and garnish with a cherry!
There is nothing like it! See our full Tequila recipe board on Pinterest for plenty of cocktail inspiration!
