A Valentine’s Day Cocktail Recipe from Casa Dragones

If you’re having a party for Valentine’s Day or making a special dinner for your partner at home, this cocktail is a way to make the occasion feel thoughtfully festive, without being too over-the-top. While most candy-color cocktails are sweet, this one is not! It was created by award-winning chef Enrique Olvera of Cosme in NYC and Pujol in Mexico City and mixologist Jim Meehan of PDT using Casa Dragones Blanco tequila.

Casa Dragones Blanco is a small batch, 100% pure blue agave tequila known for its crisp, smooth flavor. Lime juice adds to the bright citrus flavor of the drink while a bit of agave nectar provides just the amount of sweetness, and celery shrub lends a little bit of an herbaceous twist. All in all, it’s a delicious drink and one that would work equally well in the summer months too! XXJKE

P.S. Now through Valentine’s Day 20% of the proceeds of Casa Dragones Blanco tequila and Casa Dragones Joven tequila will be donated to the Violence Intervention Program’s H.E.A.R.T. initiative. Purchases can be made by contacting Please use the subject line “HEART” in your email.
