Drink with your eyes first, then your lips. This sunny cocktail is made with Patrón Silver, a crowd-favorite tequila for good reason. Make the Orange Lime Cordial ahead of time and you’ll have enough for future use. The term “cordial” in the U.S. generally refers to a sweetened liqueur.

- 1 1⁄2 oz Homemade Orange-Lime Cordial*
- 1⁄2 oz club soda Orange and lime wheels
Add all ingredients in pilsner glass. Add ice, stir, and garnish with orange and lime wheels studded with a clove in the middle of lime wheel.
