I created “The Day Off” margarita with Don Julio 70, completely inspired by the staycation. It’s light and refreshing thanks to coconut water and fresh cucumber with an added punch: chia seeds and pineapple. It is just what you’re going to want to sip on poolside. This entire month I’ve been traveling from grey city to grey city. I’m missing the sun from my native Los Angeles and just booked my travel to Nicaragua for a full week of 95 degree weather and a bikini. Surf and sun awaits!
1.5 oz of Don Julio 70
2 oz of cucumber, pineapple, and lemon juice (I used a smoothie blender including pulp!)
2 oz of coconut water
1/2 a lime squeeze
2 sprinkles of chia seeds
I created the most perfect Cinco de Mayo cocktail that you’re going to love. My friends like to call it the “Ginger Cooler.” It revolves around my favorite tequila, Don Julio 70, the world’s first Añejo Claro Tequila, which is aged eighteen months and then carefully charcoal filtered to bring restored some of the crisp agave notes typically found in a Blanco for a very smooth and unique flavor profile.
There’s something about Veuve Clicquot Rich that blends perfectly with Desert X’s Mirage art installation by Doug Aitken in Palm Springs, California. The silver. The reflections. The need for a cool glass of champagne under the hot desert sun.
