St. Patty's Day is Sunday and David Bouchard from Death or Glory shows us how to make a drink called "La Jolla", perfect for your party.

"This particular cocktail is a take on an old classic called the 'bijou' which means jewel and we have two ingredients in the glass already an herbal french liqueur, an aromatized wine and we are using Patron which is aged from 3 to 5 months in oak barrels. We are just gonna add a little ice and give it a little stir. These tequilas are not only great for sipping on their own but their outstanding for mixing in cocktails, their extremely versatile and absolutely delicious," said Bouchard.

So is "La Jolla" a sweet drink or a citrusy drink?

"It is a booze forward cocktail that has just enough sweetness from one of the ingredients to balance out how strong it is," said Bouchard.

You can never go wrong with Tequila!

"Our second drink is called 'Beja Picante' and it pays homage to the bee which is the logo on the Patron bottle, they have an affinity for blue agave. All of their Patron is made from 100% blue agave. A little ice and shake with a big smile and this one has the añejo which is aged from 12 to 15 months in a combination of Hungarian, French and American Oak whisky casts. We will finish this with a cucumber garnish and some black pepper, this has some cucumber juice, lime juice and a little bit of simple syrup to balance it out," said Bouchard.
