The Hornitos Shamrocker Cocktail
Go against the grain this St. Patrick’s Day
Would you pick Salma Hayek over Sinead O’Connor? Do you prefer salsa to the Irish step? Are you the only tequila man in a group of whiskey lovers? This St. Patrick’s Day, you can become a member of an elite group of Irish men who also weren’t afraid to take the Latin leap. The luck of the Irish still rings true: Jack Donaghy had a passionate affair with Elisa on “30 Rock”, Matthew McConaughey and Camila Alves are going strong, and the world will never forget Ben Affleck and Jennifer Lopez.
These iconic Irish lads didn’t hesitate when they chose their señoritas. While the rest of the guys are drinking beer and whiskey on March 17, let Hornitos™ help you go against the grain with the Shamrocker. The green and orange will remind you to think of the Emerald Isle, and the Hornitos™ tequila will give you a night you’ll never forget.
