Peligroso Cinnamon is back!
I can’t tell you how happy I am to see Peligroso Cinnamon out and about again since its move to Diageo.
We received a sample of the previous infusion (before the Diageo buy out and distillery move) and it was a huge hit with us. In fact, we awarded it a Silver medal in the 2013 Brands of Promise Awards.
We particularly enjoyed using this expression in the Tequila Aficionado Test Kitchen. Here are some links to articles where we mentioned recipes we created with it:
Truth be told, we had quite a few other recipes we wanted to try, like a particular pumpkin truffle and a few others, but one bottle only lasts so long when it is that good – and it was.
We’re hoping Diageo will enter Peligroso Cinnamon into the 2016 Brands of Promise Competition as a comeback brand (and I wouldn’t mind working on several new recipes in the test kitchen as well). In the meantime – here are some festive Peligroso Cinnamon cocktails for your next holiday party:

THE PELIGROSO® STORY: After countless trips chasing big breaks on the beaches of Baja, two avid surfers from Southern California found themselves in awe of the region’s culture and its quality tequila. The duo would revel each day’s adventure with a shot of Tequila, or Surfer’s Martini, which struck a deep appreciation for the spirit. In 2009, they founded Peligroso® Tequila, a 100% Blue Weber Agave Tequila, inspired by their thirst for life, adventure and great stories.
Embodying a deep respect for Mexico, Peligroso® Tequila is their tribute to the country’s beauty, rugged edge and rich traditions. Made the traditional way in the highlands of Jalisco, the spirit’s sense of adventure is found in each of its Tequila variants. Peligroso® variants include 100% Blue Weber Agave Silver, Reposado, and Anejo Tequilas and Peligroso® Cinnamon.
