Curamia thrives on great taste, from cocktail aficionados to award-winning chefs. And when it comes to knowing the best types of tequila for sipping or shaking, we trust what our favorite mixologists have to say.
Welcome Kortnee Leigh to the table with Curamia-exclusive cocktail recipes in tow. Kortnee knows tequila—and she knows what types of tequila are superior. With a decade of experience in back-of-house, front-of-house, management, and recruitment, on top of her expertise in cocktail curation and mixology, Kortnee embodies the true spirit of the next generation of tequila lovers.
We’re ecstatic to welcome her bespoke cocktails to our line-up of one-of-a-kind drink recipes highlighting the handcrafted, smooth taste of Curamia tequila.
Exclusive to Curamia—and best enjoyed with friends, family, and strangers who become both—these cocktail recipes feature two types of tequila and a smooth, playful flavor that you must shake up at your next dinner party.
THE MEDINA, made with Curamia Reposado, is the show-stopper. As vibrant as the life of the party, it pairs our amber tequila with edible glitter, Aperol, Prosecco, and bitters. Topped with an orange half-moon and garnished with grapefruit zest, The Medina does things a little differently and is here to talk about it.
THE SKYLARK, featuring Curamia Blanco, one of our most traditional types of tequila, is anything but an old-fashioned margarita. Made with your choice of club soda, ginger beer, or grapefruit soda as a mixer, a sip brings you back to the nostalgia of authentic Mexico with the smooth, avant-garde taste of today.
Not only is Kortnee trailblazing the world of cocktails and hospitality, but she is also reinventing what it means to give back to the community. Kortnee founded a non-profit after-school program for at-risk youth, teaching them the skills and tools of the hospitality trade to support a better future for those in the industry.
Grab a seat and take a sip of all types of tequila and beyond with Kortnee at Nothing Really Matters Bar in Times Square or Silver Lining Lounge inside Moxy LES in New York City. Follow her adventures on Instagram at @kneopoliten.
