With summer in full swing, it’s the perfect time of year to experiment with DIY cocktails, and Milagro recipes use all fresh and seasonal ingredients.

Milagro is a positively Mexican tequila, founded in 1997 by Mexico City natives Danny Schneeweiss and Moy Guindi. The six expressions, with Silver, Reposado and Añejo expressions of its Core and Select Barrel Reserve ranges respectively, are all made with 100% estate-grown blue agave in the Jalisco Mexican highlands. Milagro combines old-world techniques with modern technology to create a smooth, high-quality product that captures the spirit of modern-day Mexico.

Check out these great National Tequila Day cocktails.
