The two refreshing drinks are ideal for the end of summer, thanks to flavor profiles that feature zesty limes and calming chamomile.

The Desperado Margarita is an ornery combination of Olmeca Altos Plata Tequila, lime and raw sugar. Or cool off with the Tea Off, which combines Jim Beam, chamomile and citrus to land quite a kick.
