Tequila lovers should definitely try the Royal Citrus Ritatini, made with Avion Silver, Cointreau and fresh lime, or the Smokey Rita — a twist on the classic marg that spotlights Del Maguey Vida Blanco mezcal, triple sec, orange juice and margarita mix. If you’re more into whiskey or bourbon, opt for a classic Manhattan or a Rob Roy, both blended with just the right amount of sweet vermouth.
