6 Cocktails that will Spice up Your Cinco de Mayo

6 Cocktails made from Mexico Born Spirits that will Keep Things Spicy

Celebrate Cinco de Mayo with these 6 cocktails featuring William Grant & Sons spirits: Milagro Tequila, Ancho Reyes, Ancho Reyes Verde, and Montelobos Mezcal. ¡Salud!

  • Ancho Reyes Chile Liqueur provides a complex, smoky, heated undercurrent of spices. Or turn it up a notch with the newest addition to the award-winning Ancho Reyes family, Ancho Reyes Verde, a fresher, brighter version derived from the poblano chili.
  •  The award-winning Milagro Tequila expressions are triple-distilled in small batches from the finest blue agave from the Jalisco highlands, resulting in an exceptionally smooth spirit with a signature agave-forward character.
  •   The meticulously crafted Montelobos Mezcal, made with 100% organically certified agave espadín grown in the shadows of Cerro Montelobos (the Mountain of Wolves) in Oakaca’s Sierra Madre range, achieves extraordinary balance and complexity through a bold integration between agave, fermentation notes and smoke.
