Celebrate Cinco de Mayo with 1800 Tequila

Cinco de Mayo makes a few words come to mind. One of those definitely being…tequila!

The brand recently released three new flavors of cocktail mixers, where consumers just add tequila for the perfect Pomegranate Margarita, Ultimate Margarita or Mojito. 1800 also carries the vividly designed Essential Artists series, designed by up-and-coming artists for a dynamic visual on a unique medium, perfect for the tequila-centric holiday.

Please find a few recipes below for holiday imbibing, even for the non-margarita fan to help celebrate!
