As The Bachelor Matt James begins his journey, sip on The Matt-arita as you watch.

With a new season of The Bachelor beginning, The Matt-arita could be the cocktail as spicy as the dates that lay ahead for Matt James. Although true love is the ultimate goal, this Patron margarita could be the spice to fuel the passion. Is your cocktail shaker ready?

Sometimes the best part of watching a show is the tasty beverage that accompanies the viewing pleasure. During a season premiere of The Bachelor, there are often more unbelievable moments than anyone could have expected. From first impressions to that first rose ceremony, often the shocking moments are the most memorable ones.

Ahead of the season premiere, Patron created this special margarita for the occasion. Even if you have contemplated a Dry January, this spicy margarita will have you happily putting that cocktail shaker to good use.

Here’s how to make The Matt-arita for the new season of The Bachelor featuring Matt James.

The Matt-arita


  • 1.5 oz PATRÓN Silver
  • .75 oz Fresh lime juice
  • .5 oz Agave syrup (equal parts agave nectar : water)
  • 1 barspoon chili oil
  • Pinch salt
  • Lime wedge, for garnish


  • Combine all ingredients (except garnish) in a cocktail shaker and shake vigorously with ice. Strain onto fresh ice in a rocks glass and garnish with the lime wedge.

The interesting part of this cocktail is the chili oil. While spicy margaritas often rely on muddled jalapenos or infused syrups, the chili oil adds a different layer of flavor.

First, since the chili oil offers a consistent flavor each and every time. By leveling the spicy playing field, everyone can have the same flavor experience. There is no worry about burning the palate on the first sip.

Second, the chili oil offers a luscious texture to the cocktail. And, it could inspire a margarita pairing with some sesame noodles or a robust pho.

Let the flames of love burn brightly on The Bachelor but let the hit slowly smolder with The Matt-arita. Just like a story-book love affair, a little heat brings you back for more.
