Agave-Fruti-Chile cocktail with tequila
A cocktail born to honor typical flavors of our contemporary Mexico. Fruits and chili (chile-hot peppers) are everyday ingredients for Mexicans ant they happen to be characteristic of this drink. We add some Hornitos® Plata Tequila and we get a very Mexican drink, perfect to pair with one of our recipes of even all by itself!

This recipe serves 1 person and takes 5 minutes to prepare.
