Day of the Dead (or Dia de los Muertos), the popular Mexican holiday, doesn’t just honor loved ones who have passed away, but celebrates life as well. And what better way to do that than to cheers with some tequila. Espolòn Tequila created cocktails featuring its recently unveiled expression, Espolòn Añejo, that will be perfect for the day of joy. Awake the dead with a smooth coffee flavour or create a rich tasting cocktail for a unique evening.
