Tequila Week Cocktail Recipes: Charro Negro

Charro Negro Tequila Cocktail Recipe

Thursday, July 24th is officially Tequila day, but since this Southern California pinup likes her cocktails, tequila in particular, I decided we should celebrate all week. It must be due to my Southern California Lifestyle.

Today’s cocktail recipe is a twist on the Cuba Libre, but instead of rum, we will be adding the loveliness that is tequila.

Charro Negro
2 oz. Trianon Blanco Tequila
1 ½ oz. cola
Fresh lime juice
Sea salt
Lime wheel for garnish

Rim a glass with salt and fill with ice. Add lime juice, cola and Trianon Blanco Tequila. Add a pinch of salt and stir. Garnish with a lime wheel and serve.

More recipes to come throughout the week to help you celebrate Tequila day in style.

Del Mar Racetrack Opens Today! How To Celebrate At Home!

Opening day at the Del Mar Race Track races means cocktails, mingling, and all the best dressed hats in Southern California.

Hats, hats and more hats. That is all you will see about the Del Mar Racetrack today. There is even a contest today at during the opening day festivities for the best hat, and these women take it serious! You’ll see plenty of hats, tight dresses, and women getting their heels stuck in the dirt in the parking lot… and the grass at the entryway. Please be careful ladies.

If you cannot make it to Del Mar for Opening Day at the racetrack hold your own festivities at home! Get a great big hat, and bedazzle as you wish. On an episode of The Girls Next Door Bridget Marquardt hot glued my little ponies to her hat. It was perfect!

You can also watch the races on cable at home. Yes, there is a cable channel for horse racing. Why not gather the friends around, bring your hats, and watch the races. If you can’t watch the races, rent some old movies like National Velvet, Yankee Doodle Dandy, Seabiscuit, or Secretariat.

You can also mix up some horse race themed cocktails!

Bastille Day Inspired Cocktails – Recipes

champgne cocktail bastille day recipeBastille Day Cocktail- The Marie Antoinette

Viva La France! Monday is Le quatorze juillet, Bastille Day, of France. Consider it as the French 4th of July, it is their independence day. Bastille Day marks the end of the monarchy of France and the start of the Republic.

To celebrate this day of freedom for my French friends, and Francophiles here in the states, I have a few French inspired cocktails. We have Champagne cocktails, absinthe, and more!

The Marie Antoinette
No cake required!

This is by far the most indulgent cocktail for the day. And if you don’t want to have a cocktail, the Laurent-Perrier Brut Champagne is exquisite on its own.

1 oz. CAMUS VS Elegance Cognac
¼ oz. raspberry liqueur
¼ oz. Laurent-Perrier Brut Champagne
Garnish with Chinese star anise

Combine CAMUS VS Elegance Cognac and raspberry liqueur in a Champagne flûte. Top with Laurent-Perrier Brut Champagne. Garnish with Chinese star anise and serve.

More BASTILLE DAY COCKTAILS,  including absinthe and Cognac, after the jump!
