Be a SmartyPants Host & Serve VIVA XXXII Tequila Cocktails for National Tequila Day !!

National Tequila Day on July 24, 2017- and it happens to be mid-summer and full of long hot summer days. It’s the perfect time to celebrate this unique day!   When you have a  great tequila for National Tequila Day, go beyond margaritas to mix up something “outside the box collaborated with top mixologists from NYC and LA for their signature cocktails. Bringing a premium sipping tequila to the market at an attainable price point, VIVA XXXII contains two varieties: a Joven and a Reposado.

 

Group

The Joven ($40) is an estate grown 100% blue agave blanco, meticulously blended with our 3-year-old extra anejo.

The Reposado ($45) is estate grown and rested for 6 months in new American Oak barrels.

–The best part? The brand donates 10% of net proceeds to animal abuse prevention charities.

Top with a float of Angostura Bitters and Pineapple Frond.

Tasting Notes:
TIKI Tequila! The freshness of the juices is what brings out the natural flavors of the tequila here. A slight bit on the sweet side, it won’t leave you with a tooth ache, but rather aching for another. The softer more rounded flavor notes of the Reposado Tequila dance in this cocktail.

The balance of summer in a glass: bright, refreshing and with just a bit of heat. This cocktail hits all of the major palate areas. It is tart, sweet, earthy, and just a bit spicy. It is perfect for sipping away the long nights of summer.

 

 

VIVA Las Peaches made by Blaine Adams of Barrel & Ashes (11801 Ventura Blvd, Studio City, CA 91604)

 

VIVA-Las-Peaches

 

Ingredients: 

  • 2 oz. VIVA XXXII Joven Tequila
  • ¼ Fresh Ripe Yellow Peach
  • 1 Rosemary Sprig
  • ¾ oz. Fresh lemon juice
  • ½ oz. Cinnamon Simple Syrup
  • 2 oz. Soda Water

Directions:

Place all ingredients in a tin and muddle until the peaches have expressed a decent amount of juice.
Next, add ice and give a medium strength, medium length shakes
Add 2 oz. Soda Water.
Double strain onto fresh ice into a highball glass
Garnish with a fresh rosemary sprig.

Tasting notes:
Peaches and tequila are quite a pair. The bright citrus notes in the Joven latch onto the fresh peach and take off running. The cinnamon and rosemary are there to help balance out the flavor profile adding some spice and bitter earthy qualities. It’s refreshing, different, and will leave you asking for another. It’s not as crazy as a Vegas shotgun wedding but it is as good of a time!

 

 

VIVA Crisp made by Chris Kramer @celebratedspirits of The Larchmont (5750 Melrose Ave, Los Angeles, CA 90038)

 

VIVA-Crisp

 

Ingredients: 

  • 2 oz. VIVA XXXII Joven Tequila
  • 3 fresh slices of Cucumber
  • 2-3 fresh slices of Jalapeno (deseed to control spice factor)
  • ¾ oz. Agave Syrup

 

Directions:
Place all in a tin and lightly muddle.
Do not crush ingredients; just press to express oils and flavors.
Add ice and give a short and soft shake.
Pour all into a Double Old-Fashioned Glass.
Garnish with some something fresh and fragrant.
We use a lime peel and cucumber wheel– but a large basil sprig is also recommended.

Tasting Notes: This is a very fresh and big cocktail. The cucumber and Jalapeño serve as the stage for the bright notes of the tequila to shine through. The agave gives the cocktail balance. It’s a garden in a glass!
