Cocktail lovers looking for the perfect tipple to accompany their Christmas dinner will be excited to hear that 1800 Tequila Silver has teamed up with Cocktail Porter to create a limited edition Christmas Dinner Cocktail Kit to lift your festive spirits. Produced by Jose Cuervo at Casa Cuervo in Jalisco, Mexico 1800 is made from 100% Weber blue agave. It is double distilled and a special selection of white tequila is blended together for complexity and character.
Lending itself to cocktail creativity, the clean, balanced taste of 1800 Silver carries hints of sweet fruit and pepper notes, conjuring up the sweet and savoury flavours of a Christmas Dinner. A refreshing, savoury cocktail with delicious festive aromas from orange, clove, cinnamon and cranberry to rosemary, it is made perfect with an 1800 Tequila Christmas glaze, which can be repurposed as a delicious marinade for your Christmas dinner (or used to spruce up your Christmas leftover sandwich).
The kit contains all the ‘trimmings’ needed to create the tantalizing serve, perfect for small festive gatherings or for gifting to a cocktail enthusiast.
