Day of The Dead With El Jimador

Halloween is right around the corner and hopefully you’ve got some plans in place, and we do, but we’re also planning a few things for the Day of the Dead. Did you know most people think the Day of the Dead is just another name for Halloween. It’s not, it actually celebrated AFTER Halloween, November 1st and 2nd. The multi-day holiday focuses on gatherings of family and friends to pray for and remember friends and family members who have died, and help support their spiritual journey. So if you’re like me, you can turn any holiday into an excuse to drink, and El Jimador tequila has passed on a few cocktails to help us celebrate. Explore a few delicious, spooky cocktails uniquely crafted for your Day of the Dead celebrations. From sour, to sweet, to spicy, we’ve got the perfect recipe for getting the crew together to celebrate – wherever they’re coming from.
