Cinco de Mayo Cocktail Recipes

Tramonto by Naren Young

"The Tramonto is perfect for summer, a beautiful color and so easy to drink," says Naren. He creates this delicious cocktail (which means "sunset" in Italian) at popular restaurant Locanda Verde in New York City. "Naren's cocktails are subtle and sophisticated with multiple layers," said Dave Singh, Director of Brand Development for Partida Tequila. "He has this deep understanding of spirits and unique style of mixology, meaning his cocktails really become an expression of the spirit."

Ingredients:

1.5 oz of Partida Reposado Tequila 3/4 oz Aperol
1/2 oz Solerno
3/4 oz Fresh Grapefruit
2 dashes orange bitters
Shake and strain.
