Keep the Party Alive on Day of the Dead


Day of the Dead is at the end of the month, and here's a treat and some tricks to help put a twist on the traditional and breathe some life into upcoming Day of the Dead parties:

·         Disguise Guests With Festive Masks - Face painting on this holiday is a powerful symbol to remember the dead. Keep up the Mexican tradition by having guests create their own “calacas,” providing them with the wooden masks and paint they need to get in touch with their festive side.

·         Add a Pop of Color– The spirit of the holiday encourages vibrant creativity from its participants as it represents a joyful afterlife. This year, stay away from the typical orange and black and add a pop of color, such as marigold instead.  

·         Get Decadent with Your Dishes- Day of the Dead is not complete without the traditional “tequila” bread. Remaster your must-have “Day of the Bread” recipe by replacing the standard tequila addition with Sauza® 901® for an elegant twist.

·         Serve Frightfully Delicious Cocktails – Tequila is a staple for any Mexican holiday but to add a premium feel to this year’s festivities, incorporate the smooth taste of Sauza® 901® through the below recipe.

Candied Skull
·         2 parts Sauza® 901®
·         1 part fresh grapefruit juice
·         ½ part honey syrup
·         Grapefruit wedge for garnish 
Preparation: Combine ingredients in a mixing glass with ice.  Shake well for 10 seconds.  Serve in a martini glass.  Garnish with grapefruit wedge.
