Espolòn Tequila Blanco

(Mexico, Campari America, San Francisco, CA); $25

This Mexican folk art-style label was inspired by 19th-century Mexican artist Jose Guadalupe Posada, who was famous for the controversial skeleton illustrations he designed in celebration of Mexico’s traditional Day of the Dead. Since the legendary pelea de gallos (fighting roosters) are important to Mexican culture, the scenes on the label feature Ramón the Rooster in key moments in Mexican history. Espolòn also takes its name from the “spur” found on the back of the rooster’s leg.

Mix It: 

The el diablo cocktail is the perfect way to put this Tequila to good use. A splash of deep red cassis lends an appropriately devilish hue.
