About our Classic Pink Margarita
For those who didn't know it yet, the Margarita is by far Patrice's favorite cocktail! It had been a long time since he'd had fun creating a new version of it, and the pink unicorn syrup gave him a golden opportunity: watermelon is, according to him, the fruit that goes best with agave spirits.
