The winning spicy margarita, “Rosa Picante,” was created by Jordan Corney of San Antonio, Texas.

“Rosa Picante” features Patrón silver and Patrón Citrónge Lime. “It was an honor to be asked to help Patrón create a recipe for one of the margarita styles to compete for this year’s ‘Margarita of the Year,’ and I’m enormously excited that the spicy cocktail I developed was voted as the favorite,” said Corney.
