Glass: On the Rocks

Inspiration: The environmental ecosystem, recycling, and sustainable materials-these are the biggest issue makers, culture, and trend that we face today. There are 4 key elements that contribute towards maintaining the ecosystem. Those things are earth aka the land, water, wind, and sunlight. Without these 4 elements, the almighty Tequila known as Patron would not be here today.

In particular, Patrón Tequila is uniquely concerned about the ecosystem and continues to do things that concern sustainability. For example, after steaming Agave, the remains are used as fertilizer in the vast agave farm; and even when lime trees are being moved from here and there, it is said that it is completely replanted with all the roots intact. Hence, I too would like to continue that very spirit of Patrón and present you with my creation of a sustainable cocktail...

The name of my drink is Be(e) Around: the very bee that's the symbol of Patrón. Thus, it holds a dual, double-meaning which showcases the very best Tequila as known as Patrón - while embodying the wanderlust character of bartender Willy who travels around around the world. Salut!!
