Happy Hour with Hornitos

Happy Hour with Hornitos

After a long day of work, meeting up with a good friend to unwind, share a cocktail and swap stories (I STILL can’t believe they said that!) is just what’s needed. Sometimes, even a drink and chat over the phone between Kristin and I is all we have time for, so seeing each other in person is even better!

When I host a happy hour, I love to make it light hearted and fun. After all, it’s about winding down and not feeling too formal. Kristin and I had an epic work weekend ahead of us so I knew an in-person happy hour afterward would be essential. We set a fun quirky atmosphere with cute pink Cheers bottles with straws and plastic pink flamingos. It’s amazing how just a few accessories like these pink flamingos can make everyone feel festive and take the party outdoors! Just a little zing of the unpredictable.

And our drinks! I am head over heels for all the tasty options for tequila lately and this Hornitos® Plata is so smooth! While you know I love a good margarita, there are so many other ways to sip tequila. This cocktail is so easy and knock your socks off delicious. I mean, after a long day of meetings I just want to quickly mix and relax. Within mere minutes Kristin and I were cracking each other up on the back porch.

    I have never heard of that brand of tequila before. The drinks look good and I love those bottles.

    I have never seen European Blood Orange soda and I don’t drink very much but Tequila was a favorite way way back when. Hornitos-never heard of it but will look for it if I happen to want a very different kind of cocktail!

    It looks like you ladies had an absolute blast. I actually have a bottle of Hornitos Tequila I could think of a thing or two to do with.
