The Summer of Don Julio Tequila

Airstream Speakeasy

To celebrate the Cinco de Mayo on May 1st, Don Julio Tequila prepared a special VIP boat ride as well as Airstream Speakeasy mobile bar, serving delicious cocktails with Mexican flavor. The mobile bespoke bar will be traveling across the nation throughout the entire summer, with plenty stops and refreshments, before ending the journey on Mexican Independence Day in September in Huston.

Airstream Speakeasy will be connecting with people all around U.S. and spreading the passion of Don Julio Tequila. The crew will inform about the steps of creating the best tequila out there and serving their signature drinks. To get ready for the summer fun try out these refreshing cocktail recipes:

@threadtherapy and I were lucky enough to be invited to this event, and it was fantastic. Free bespoke cocktails, and food courtesy of Los Tacos.

The tacos were amazing as were the drinks.

I particularly enjoyed trying Don Julio Real and the Anejo. I was only familiar with Silver, the clear tequila (as I suspect most people are). The Real retails for $370, and like the Anejo is aged in old whiskey barrels, which adds depth and color to the spirit.

I was drinking it neat and on the rocks and both were amazing. One of the Don Julio pros recommended substituting Anejo in any whiskey based cocktail, so I’m going to try that out in the next old fashioned I make.

Thanks Don Julio, great job!
