Food | Exclusive Billboard Latino Cocktails

Say salud! to summer with these sexy cocktails from the 2015 Billboard Latin Music Awards...

Here at Latin é we love to celebrate our Latino culture and all of our successes. What better way to do so than with good music and a refreshing cocktail? Buchanan’s Scotch Whisky seems to agree with us, as they took the spot of official spirit sponsor of the 2015 Billboard Latin Music Awards Show and After Party in Miami earlier this spring. For the occasion, they created signature cocktails to celebrate Latino talent during the special events that took place that week.

As we head deep into the heart of summer, with the heat inspiring us to spend more time with family and friends enjoying life under the sun, a new cocktail recipe (or two!) might come in handy. So, when we got the scoop on these fabulous cocktails, we couldn’t wait to share them with all of you. Here’s to all those Latinos who are graduating this year; here’s to all those Latino fathers that love unconditionally and help raise amazing people; here’s to all those beautiful days under the sun this summer; and here’s to you. Salud!
