* Purchase a bottle online to use in these two cocktails for National Tequila Day

It’s National Tequila Day and there’s no better time to try out some new cocktails for the summer. These ones come courtesy of DeLeón Tequila — a premium tequila brand acquired by rapper and mogul Sean “Diddy” Combs in 2014 (Diddy famously declared a “funeral” for Patron, boasting that his new brand would take over the tequila market).

The DeLeón  brand was initially created in the Guanajuato region, home to the town of Leon and the town of Purisima del Rincon. With a long history of tequila making, each bottle is crafted from hand-selected 100% Blue Weber agave sourced from the highlands of Jalisco. By instilling an innovative blend of traditional yet unique tequila making processes, DeLeón Tequila has more smoothness and abundant character, perfect for these two new drinks.

Do like Diddy and pick up a bottle of DeLeón Tequila online, then impress your guests this National Tequila Day with these easy-to-make cocktails, which use DeLeón and a few simple ingredients you should already have at home.
