Twang Gets Creepy by Dressing Up Sugar Skulls, Eyeballs and Twang Cocktails

Twang gets creepy for Halloween and Day of the Dead. Halloween is creeping up and shortly after comes Dia De Los Muertos, which, if you are unfamiliar with, is celebrated on November 1 and November 2. America’s Halloween celebrations typically feature costume parties full of spooky, sweet cocktails and candy and your readers will be looking for drink ideas. Throughout Mexican and American regions with large Mexican populations (such as San Antonio), Dia de los Muertos continues to honor the spirits of departed family members and friends with altars, bright colors, marigold flowers, traditional treats like pan de muerto, and plenty of cerveza and Mexican cocktails, especially micheladas. Halloween and Dia de los Muertos are both worthy occasions for special cocktails.


You can host your own Halloween and Day of the Dead celebrations and take drinks to the next level with Twang, a family-owned creator of seasonings and salts based in San Antonio.


Twang’s product lines which spookify cocktails are Beer Salt and Twang-A-Rita; they are salts and seasonings designed to easily add flavor to drinks and elevate your at-home alcoholic beverages to cocktail bar status. For scary sweet  and colorful cocktails, add Twang-A-Rita to the rim; its a blend of kosher salt and cane sugar. Twang Clamato Salt and Michelada Beer Salt are two products specifically designed to pair with the michelada, the spicy, tomato lime mix introduced to us by Mexico. Micheladas are especially popular on November 1 and November 2; their fun, zesty style has reached spicy drink lovers across the country and are a festive drink to re-create, especially in a sugar skull glass.
