Clase Azul Tequila is luxury premium spirit celebrating its 20th anniversary. Each flavor comes in a beautifully handcrafted bottle designed by Mexican artisans. Hand sculpted and individually painted, no two bottles are exactly alike. And, the tequilas are produced from organic agaves that are grown to maturity for at least nine years before careful harvesting. The agave is slow-cooked in traditional brick ovens for 72 hours and then fermented using a proprietary yeast strain which enhances the complex characteristics of the tequila.

The Clase Azul Uncle Sam cocktail recipe:

1 ounce Clase Azul Plata Tequila
1 ounce La Pinta Pomegranate Liqueur
2 ounces orange juice
2 ounces pineapple juice
Dash of Grenadine
