Hispanic Heritage month celebrates the cultures of American citizens whose ancestors come from Hispanic or Latin American countries. Herradura Tequila has always honored its roots, its culture, and its people. This year, Herradura Tequila celebrates the talents of four local Latin bartenders who will create a series of cocktails inspired by their roots, while also telling us their incredible stories.

Today, we would like to introduce their stories and their cocktails.

Screen Shot 2021 10 27 at 11.52.58 AMANDY CABRERA

Andy Cabrera currently works as a bartender listening and dancing to Cuban music and keeping his Cuban traditions and roots alive. When he was ten years old, Andy and his family moved from Cuba to Miami. After spending most of his childhood in Cuba, Miami was a completely different world. As he got older and started to find his place, he didn’t care about the world of Mixology at first. He was interested in web development and computer systems. Eventually, he picked up the mantle and took his place as the third generation of bartenders. After giving Mixology a chance, he fell in love with it. Being a bartender gave him a chance to make a name for himself alongside the legacy of his father and grandfather. He named his cocktail, “Santa Marta”, after the town’s name where he lived in Cuba. Farmers would always ride around the town on their bikes. They would sell produce, namely avocados. When they say “Aguacate maduro,” We would say back “Peo Seguro.” This lives in Andy’s memories of his beloved hometown.

2oz Tequila Herradura Silver
0.5 oz Herbal liqueur
¾ oz Cayenne agave
¾ oz Fresh lime juice
1oz Pineapple juice
¼ Avocado
3 Drops saline solution

Andy muddles the avocado and mixes the ingredients. He also shakes the drink and serves it over crushed ice in a Collins glass with a mint.

Screen Shot 2021 10 27 at 11.58.10 AMBARBARA CORREA

Originally from Venezuela, Barbara Correa has become one of the most iconic mixologists in Miami. “I had to reinvent myself when I arrived in the United States,” said Barbara, who was a lawyer before she became a mixologist. “My challenge was to do everything possible to reach the level of other local mixologists, with my own style and respecting my Latin influences.” Barbara is not only passionate about being a mixologist. She also loves to create unique experiences in each cocktail which delivers the sweetest smile and sense of hospitality. “I love to use Latin fruits and ingredients because they are so flavorful, colorful, and full of aromas,” explained Barbara, representing her roots and revealing the secret to her delicious drink.
This cocktail was inspired by one of the most important songs of the Venezuelan singer-songwriter Simon Diaz. The cocktail is a journey to the Venezuelan Sabana.

2 Oz Tequila Herradura Reposado
1.5 Oz Papelon (brown sugar cane) mix with lemon and lime juice
1/4 Oz Passion fruit and Venezuelan aji dulce (sweet pepper) infused.

Fill with soda water and decore with lime peel and brown sugar cane zest.
The cocktail is posing on the most traditional musical instrument in the country: “El Cuatro” A small guitar with four cords. Inside we find the cocktail ingredients with Venezuelan national flowers, orchids.


Anthony Medina celebrates Hispanic Heritage Month with pride. He loves being Venezuelan and sharing his heritage with new people. His roots break the ice and allow him to explain how his home country became a bridge to his life in America. After becoming a bartender in Venezuela, Anthony moved to the US six years ago. He has been in the industry for sixteen years, serving as a Spirit educator, a Brand Ambassador, a competitor in various competitions, and a very interactive bartender. Anthony loves offering excellent service to his clients. He values making them feel comfortable and entertained. He loves that his cocktails are able to tell a story. With the Cocktail 360, he is able to tell his own story. “It has different Venezuelan elements that I’ve added, such as papelon, chocolate aromatic bitters, herbal liqueur, and spicy bitters,” said Anthony, revealing his knack for finding versatile flavors. Anthony is known for using a diversity of ingredients that create a perfect balance in his cocktails. The Cocktail 360’s name complements the tool Anthony uses to create his cocktail- a 360° humidifier.
This cocktail is inspired by the time the Tequila spends in the barrels, complemented with a 360° humidifier technique. It’s a nightcap-style cocktail to enjoy before bed. “I’ve added different Venezuelan elements such as chocolate aromatic bitters, papelon, and other unique flavors and aromas.”

Screen Shot 2021 10 27 at 6.47.52 PMWILL ESTRADA 

When Will Estrada meets another Latin person, he feels connected to a very strong and supportive family. “We are a very happy culture,” said Will. “We treat each other like cousins no matter where we are from.” The sense of connection influences Will’s bartending and strengthens his love of hospitality. His family also inspires him. From making a “pastel” to improvising new recipes with the available ingredients, Will learned a lot from his mom and his abuelita about cooking ingredients. He improvises most of his cocktails. His cocktails usually come out great as a direct result of his ingenuity. His latest creation, Kak’ik, is no exception! The cocktail is named after a famous Mayan dish that he discovered while living in Guatemala. Will was born in Los Angeles, California, but he grew up in Guatemala. When he returned to the US, he brought some of the best experiences he ever had: family, hospitality, and a deep connection to his Latin roots. The Kak’ik is essentially a soup made with very hard-to-find ingredients. Will leaves the mix of the Kak’ik marinating for 24 hrs to create the flavor and the aromas.

Named after a dish with the same name. One of the most famous Mayan dishes in Guatemala. The meaning of kak’ik in English is “red and spicy” but it has a deeper meaning. The red color of this dish evokes the blood spilled and is symbolic of rebirth.


2 oz Tequila Herradura Ultra Añejo Cristalino
1 oz Citrus mix (lime, lemon tangerine juice – equal parts)
2 oz Kak’ik agave shrub (roasted tomato, tomatillo, onion, red bell pepper, Chile de Coban, apple cider vinegar, agave)
1/2 Bar spoon dried pumpkin seeds, salt, and dried chili mix

The cocktail is served in a handmade ceramic cup from Guatemala.

Who doesn’t like a healthy dose of competition? 

 Last week, Woodford Reserve and Herradura Tequila sponsored Battle Bar TV’s thrilling Season 1 Finale. Andrew Lue, an award-winning mixologist, bar consultant, and local influencer founded Bar Battle TV. Bar Battle TV is the first Bartending Competition show of its kind and thrives off bartenders whose personalities, expertise, and competitiveness easily shine for a global audience. Woodford Reserve and Herradura Tequila’s sponsorship was an integral part of the event’s success. The brands’ participation arose due to a deep respect for what Battle Bar TV represents.  

“Bar Battle showcases the talent and ingenuity of our local trade members under pressure,” said Woodford Reserve Brand Ambassador Natalia Cardenas. “Woodford Reserve and Herradura Tequila were honored to be the presenting sponsors of the Inaugural Season Finale.”

Woodford Reserve and Herradura Tequila gave the competition show an opportunity to stand out and promote fun, excitement, and community. The finale took place at Oasis in Wynwood and there were over eighty guests who attended the exhilarating trade-focused, head-to-head cocktail competition.  Although brands from all over the world sponsor Bar Battle TV, the first season of the competition was set against the backdrop of Miami. Last Monday’s event gave the best of the best bartenders a chance to claim not only glory but also a Bar TV 2021 Champion belt, a cash prize, and a bottle of Herradura Tequila. 

 The event included a thrilling competition, an exuberant crowd, and a performance by a phenomenal musical artist. Orilla Bartender Rodrigo Tubert and Lido Restaurant &  Champagne Bar Bartender Derek Stilmann competed for the title of Champion Mixologist. Los Angeles’ very own Ilan Hall, a celebrity chef and winner of Top Chef Season 2, served as the event’s guest judge. With only 45 minutes at their disposal, the two competitors used Woodford Reserve and Herradura Tequila brands to create three innovative and creative cocktails using secret ingredients. The two bartenders created their cocktails with style, flair, and showmanship.

Laughing, cheering, and staring nervously, the crowd could not get enough of them. Both competitors put up a valiant effort. However, it was Derek Stilmann who was suited for success. Stilmann took home the Champion belt while Rodrigo Tubert took home an inscribed bottle of Woodford Reserve’s, losing has never tasted so good.  

The night’s festivities did not end with the competition. Woodford Reserve and Herradura Tequila also provided an educational alcohol station that featured free samples as well as cocktails and bottle service for sale. Walshy Fire, a Grammy-winning artist and member of the musical trio Major Lazer, gave an unforgettable live performance. 

If the finale is any indication, the first season of Bar Battle TV’s success stems from Lue’s ability to showcase local talent to a global audience. Woodford Reserve and Herradura Tequila’s sponsorship also gave attendees the opportunity to discover the importance of educating, engaging, and exciting viewers and event attendees alike.

In the central valleys of Oaxaca, and about an hour drive from the capital Oaxaca de Juarez, lies the village of San Pablo Huixtepec. The village of San Pablo Huixtepec is the home of the Palenque where “The Lost Explorer” super-premium mezcal is produced.

This is where we can truly say: single village, single palenque, single estate mezcal. As we deep dive into the brand’s origins with Maestro Mezcalero Fortino Ramos and his daughter (second generation mezcalera in training) Xitlali Ramos. We’ve learned that the tradition of mezcal making was almost lost in San Pablo Huixtepec but Fortino pursued his passion despite the critics of the town and continued to work the agave fields. On the agave fields, he began perfecting his technique, not only with the know-how but also by science and artistry. He started his own Palenque and made Mezcal for an array of brands in the beginning of his journey.

Screen Shot 2021 10 21 at 10.30.21 AMIn 2015, his perseverance and dedication was paid back when philanthropist and environmentalist David de Rothschild partnered with Fortino and their family to develop the liquid for “The Lost Explorer” mezcal; they forged a sustainable and environmentally friendly brand  that reflected their own values; respecting the ecosystem and rich biodiversity of agaves.

Honoring the sacred vow between humankind and the agave, The Lost Explorer Mezcal is committed to the sustainable production of high-quality handcrafted spirits in a manner that benefits the local mezcal-producing community in Oaxaca and protects the land. Commitments in place at launch include: the Mezcalero being a shareholder in the company, rainwater conservation, the use of reclaimed wood, replanting at least three agaves for every agave distilled, fertilizer created from agave waste, and solar panels to harness energy for power generation and water heating. Workers harvested the agave  in harmony with the elements and in tune with the rhythm of nature.

Screen Shot 2021 10 21 at 10.37.09 AMThe project started with three varietals: Espadin, Tobala, and Salmiana of which only Espadin is cultivated from agave pups (Hijuelos) and matured for eight years before harvesting. Both Tobala and Salmiana are wild. It takes ten years to harvest Tobala and twelve for Salmiana – inviting people to live curiously and explore the diversity and wonder of the sacred agave.

The artisanal mezcal starts with the cooking of the single variety agave in the underground conic oven; then cooked agaves go through a multi-stage shredder. The next process is the fermentation which occurs naturally on open wooden tanks with fibers and water.

Because of their commitment to the environment, they have installed solar panels and eliminated wood to heat the copper pots on the double distillation process by incorporating gas. This way ensures that they are not only protecting the local trees, but also caring for the health of their employees.

tobala2Every single expression is then bottled and sealed, bringing the true essence and character of the variety. On each mezcal we noticed Fortino’s hand, the finesse of the liquid that brings all the notes that are particular to each terruño (terroir) and agave, each one is well balanced with the right touch of smokiness. At their Palenque, they continue to grow agave Espadin and other varieties from the Karwinsky family. “The Lost Explorer” brand not only opened new horizons and prosperity to an entire village but also it brought back the passion for the craft and the innovation that new generation mezcaleros and educators as Maestro Fortino Ramos can bring for the future of mezcal making and the environment.

Salmiana2Introduced at the end of 2020, The Lost Explorer Mezcal has become one of the most awarded mezcals in 2021, having been awarded double gold, gold and silver recognition from the San Francisco World Spirits Competition, the most established and influential spirits competition in the world. It has also received the prestigious accolade of Taste Master – the best of the best across the Tequila and Mezcal category – by The Tequila and Mezcal Masters 2021, hosted by the Spirits Business.

Miami, FL (October 2021)- Rock N Roll Tequila is proud to announce that two of their phenomenal Tequilas have placed in the New York World Wine & Spirits 2021 Competition (NYWSC) for one of the best flavored Tequila. 

Rock N Roll’s Strawberry Tequila claimed the Bronze medal while their Mango Tequila took home the Silver at the NYWSC, a highly competitive and respected event. These medals are a testament to COO Chris Ferrone and Master Distiller Jose Aceves’s dedication to crafting a Tequila that not only looks incredible but also has an exquisite taste to complement its gorgeous aesthetic. The award-winning  Strawberry Tequila debuted this past July after the Rock N Roll team noticed that customers adored their Mango Tequila. This latest and greatest Rock N Roll Tequila delivers a tantalizing scent of fresh strawberries and a delicious strawberry, sweet caramel, and cooked agave flavor. The triumphant Mango Tequila offers a sweet caramel, mango, and crisp citrus taste.  


“It’s been an incredible journey over the past few years, developing a brand that has now become a triple threat to the ultra-premium Tequila category with beautiful taste profiles, an iconic name, and a beautiful package,” said Chris Ferrone in regards to his brand’s accomplishments. “Every award accomplished still has the same feeling as the first.”

Rock N Roll Tequila’s NYWSC achievement follows a series of successful competition turnouts. Earlier this year, Rock N Roll entered their Cristalino Añejo in the San Francisco Spirits 2021 Competition and earned a Silver medal. This past summer, Rock N Roll Tequila entered their Platinum Triple Distilled Tequila into The Fifty Best Competition and won the Gold medal. According to Creative Director Tayler Faoro, Rock N Roll will continue to show up and show out at these esteemed competitions. “We plan to enter more spirit competitions as we grow,” said Tayler. “We want everyone to know the quality of Tequila we make. It’s not just a fancy bottle.”

After its success at NYWSC, Rock N Roll is on a hot streak with no plan to slow down. The Rock N Roll team continues to create new, exciting flavors to delight consumers and stun competitors. “Myself being 4th generation in the wine and spirits industry alongside my family of master distillers, Casa Aceves, being 3rd generation Tequila Makers, we collectively hold our family legacies equally at heart, ensuring every production run is just as great, if not better than the previous batch,” said Chris. Rock N Roll has a limited edition Cristalino Reposado debuting on November 1st with a Day of the Dead concept. 

1 1In addition to showing their brand’s winning spirit in competitions, Rock N Roll brings that same enthusiasm, charm, and quality to its local community. Rock N Roll has pop-up events throughout Miami-Dade and Broward County to connect and engage with the community. “The community has responded very well to our pop-ups. We do traditional tastings along with resident-only exclusive pop-ups to help bring our community together while introducing them to our amazing Tequilas,” said Tayler. There will be a pop-up event at another building in Flagler Village Ftl this month.
