Mixologist, Ryan Mowat, Head Bartender at Kelvingrove Café will be serving up his own creation, ‘Gift from The Earth’, beautifully garnished with two edible flowers. This refreshing cocktail will be served alongside Tommy’s Patrón Margarita, a Patrón Jalisco Mule and the refreshingly fruity Patrón Paloma, made with grapefruit soda.

Each hero cocktail is made using Patrón Silver tequila, a 100% Weber Blue Agave tequila that mixes flawlessly into any cocktail, especially those that traditionally call for vodka, gin or white rum.

Talking of his creation, Ryan Mowat, Head Bartender at Kelvingrove Café, shared his inspiration for the cocktail; “This cocktail pays homage to one of Patrón’s core values surrounding social responsibility. For a long time I have been a keen advocate of these values in my bar, so I always make sure I utilise every element of the ingredients used. By being smart and innovative we can make some fantastic drinks, I want to be at the forefront of the sustainability scene in Glasgow and encourage other bars in the city to follow suit.”

The ‘Patrón The Summer’ cocktail airstream will feature an interactive mural photo wall, take a picture on your phone and tag using the #PatronTheSummer hashtag and your picture will automatically be printed out on site.

If you miss Ryan at the ‘Patrón The Summer’ cocktail airstream, his “Gift From The Earth” cocktail will be available as a special at Kelvingrove Café.
