Let's Fly Away with Casa Dragones

Happy Holidays from the BLADE family! This season, we've created a drink with Casa Dragones that puts a twist on the Cadillac Margarita. Named the "Let's Fly Away" by our Instagram audience – the drink is dangerously good with a nectar of jasmine tea, pear, vanilla, and sugar. Impress your holiday guests with the recipe below:

What you'll need for one serving size:

1.5 oz Casa Dragones Tequila
1 oz lemon juice
1.5 oz nectar
0.5 oz D.O.M Benedictine
2 dashes of bitters
1 scoop of ice


2 bags of jasmine tea
2 boiled pears
1 cup sugar
2 cups water
0.5 tsp vanilla

While a simple syrup is usually a 1:1 ratio, a nectar is a 2:1 ratio with more water than sugar. Boil 2 cups water and add in jasmine tea bags. Let steep for 3 minutes then remove jasmine tea bags and set aside. Boil pears in water until softened. Blend pears and add to jasmine tea over stove. Stir in 1 cup sugar until melted and add in vanilla. Set aside to cool and enjoy!
