Celebrate Tequila Day with an Añejo Smash

Tequila Drink - Anejo Smash - Copper Canyon Grill - Stanford Grill - National Tequila Day

Uno, dos, tres… Tequila! This festive spirit is celebrated this Monday, July 24th. We suggest grabbing a couple of friends and starting the celebration early during our Friday happy hour. You can also join us on Monday to brighten your week with a celebratory tequila cocktail. However, if you prefer to have the party at home, we are happy to share with you a tequila cocktail recipe for you to mix, shake, serve, share, and enjoy. Make way for our Añejo Smash!

This refreshing tequila cocktail will surely put a smile on your face. If you want to make your festivities more traditional, you can delight everyone with our Elite Margarita, too. We love having you over at the bar and preparing tasty cocktails for you and your friends, but we also love sharing our recipes for you to have a piece of us at home. But, let’s skip to the fun part… the Añejo Smash’s recipe!

Cocktails

Let’s talk about cocktails.

We love craft beer and have fallen in love with the reds and whites on our extensive wine list, but there is just something about a vibrant cocktail on a warm summer evening that we just can’t get enough of. A cocktail during happy hour or before dinner is the perfect way to leave the cares of the workday behind and transition into fun and relaxation!

Our Peartini is definitely a crowd favorite, where the vibrant taste of Grey Goose La Poire is deliciously balanced with subtly sweet, crisp flavors. The Elite Margarita, made with Cointreau, Grand Marnier, Milagro Tequila, and fresh Agave nectar, is a classic, too. Feeling a little adventurous? Sip our Fleur De Lis, a beautiful balance of Chopin Vodka and St. Germain Elderflower Liqueur, which brings out the fresh flavors of tropical fruit; perfect for the summer evenings that aren’t quite over yet.

Whether you go for a classic or look for a new favorite, our bartenders will help you find the perfect cocktail for whatever the day has thrown at you. Drop your bags, grab a friend, and relax with us.
