T’was the Cocktail Series Before Christmas: Night 9 of 12 – The Marquee

You know how oftentimes, the party doesn’t really get rolling until the tequila comes out? That can hold true, even at Christmastime. Tonight’s cocktail is served up with an eye toward the holiday season as a time to let down one’s hair and have fun. Fruity enough to be easy-drinking, yet still very much a grown-up drink in spirit (courtesy of its generous dose of añejo tequila), The Marquee promises to help make the season bright.
