Hard Rock Cafe is celebrating spring with a new line of cocktails curated by rock legend Carlos Santana.
The limited-edition beverages benefit The Milagro Foundation, a charity created by Carlos Santana to contribute to art, education, and health programs for families. The Black Magic Press and the Maria Maria Coronita both feature Santana’s Casa Noble Crystal Tequila. The Carlos Santana limited-edition cocktails will be available at cafes around the nation beginning now through Tuesday, May 5, 2015.
“I'm honored that Casa Noble and I are partnering with Hard Rock Cafe to be a part of their new spring cocktail menu,” says rock legend Santana. “Like the music of Santana, each ingredient is fresh and new with vibrant flavors that will make guests want to move and celebrate life. Like Santana and Casa Noble, Hard Rock Cafe is committed to helping people, so a portion of the proceeds from this partnership will go directly to helping children in the Las Vegas area.”
The Black Magic Press, named after one of Santana’s top hits, features Casa Noble Crystal Tequila, Hard Rock’s made-from-scratch margarita mix, fresh blackberries, blueberries, lime wedges, and mint leaves. The cocktail is served in a coffee-press style vessel that infuses the fruit into the cocktail through the drinking process.
Guests can also enjoy the Santana-inspired Maria Maria Coronita, made with Casa Noble Crystal Tequila, orange liqueur, mango puree, and lime juice, and garnished with a Coronita Extra.
“We are honored to collaborate with music icon and tequila aficionado Carlos Santana on the brand new limited-edition Black Magic Press and Maria Maria Coronita,” says Cindy Busi, worldwide director of beverage for Hard Rock International. “The new offerings combine elements Hard Rock is known for: top music industry stars, philanthropy, and our award-winning beverage program."
