Baja Dragones at Lonesome Dove

Famous for his Baja California cuisine, Chef Diego Hernández of Corazón de Tierra, #10 of Latin America’s 50 Best Restaurants, teamed with mixologist Ryan Hollowell of Lonesome Dove, Austin for a Jamming Session at SXSW to create the Baja Dragones cocktail. Fresh flavors of agave and pickled watermelon married perfectly with the light citrus notes in Tequila Casa Dragones Blanco to fulfill Chef Diego’s inspiration of infusing the flavors, vibes, and personalities of Austin and Baja into one drink.
