Patrón reveals Margarita of the Year 2021By Melita Kiely
Italian bartender Chiara Mascellaro’s Rosalia cocktail has been voted the Patrón Perfectionists Margarita of the Year 2021.
On International Margarita Day (22 February), Tequila brand Patrón partnered with Difford’s Guide to discover the Patrón Perfectionists Margarita of the Year.
Former Patrón Perfectionists global finalists submitted more than 40 signature takes on the classic cocktail, before a public vote secured the number one spot for Mascellaro’s Rosalia.
Mascellaro said: “This challenge has been an opportunity to put my creativity [to the] test in a moment when our bartending community needs more inspiration and stimulus than ever.
“I had fun in experimenting and creating my own signature Patrón Margarita. I loved being in touch with fellow Perfectionists all over the world and feeling part of this supportive community who share the same passion and dedication to the world of mixology.”
Mascellaro’s winning cocktail is now available to buy via the Difford’s Guide website as an ingredients kit that can be created at home.
Matthew Sykes, senior director, global marketing, at Patrón Tequila, said: “We are very proud of the Patrón Perfectionists finalists who took part in the Margarita of the Year quest.
“Their creations have once again showcased the qualities of a high-quality, handcrafted Tequila like Patrón in new and exciting ways that evidently capture the imagination and attention of consumers around the world.
“The talent of these individuals is undisputed, and we feel honoured to call them our familia Patrón. Congratulations to Chiara for the success of her Rosalia cocktail.”
