Casamigos Tequila Fall Brunch Cocktails

Brunchology: Casamigos Tequila Fall Brunch Cocktails

It doesn’t take much for us to enjoy a good Sunday Brunch. But nothing beats a fantastic Sunday Brunch experience than creating your own fall brunch cocktails with a great, ultra-premium spirit. That was our recent experience with Casamigos Tequila as we celebrated the fall season by creating three delicious cocktails at the new Ruth’s Chris Steakhouse in Jersey City.

Armed with all the mixology tools and ingredients we needed, we were all set to create three vastly different  Casamigos Tequila fall brunch cocktails. We started with the quintessential fall flavors of apple cider and cinnamon for the Casa Cider; continued with a smoky margarita with Casamigos’s new Mezcal, and finished off with a not-so-classic Old Fashioned.
