Your Astro Cocktail Guide from PATRÓN Tequila

The dreaded Mercury in Retrograde (December 28, 2022 – January 18, 2023) has a way of ushering in confusion, miscommunication, and even a touch of chaos as things go slightly haywire, especially tech items and travel plans. On the flip side, the “re” in retrograde means that you’ll re-visit, revise, re-consider, and re-connect with old friends and business associates. You may rethink plans and renovate. Every astrological aspect has inherent good and bad features, but many people wave their fists in frustration at the skies during Mercury retrograde.

PATRÓN Tequila has the perfect Astrological Cocktail Pairings below to help everyone sip through any potential impending mayhem, and we think these will warrant a re-pour. Each of these inspired Astro Cocktails has PATRÓN Silver as its base for the libation magic because of its smooth, sweet taste and a light peppery finish – which renders it ideal for a classic cocktail.
