Piling into a large booth at your favorite local Mexican cantina with 20 of your closest friends. Serving up marg pitchers and build-your-own fish tacos at a relaxing backyard get-together. Sipping palomas under a blanket of sunshine while enjoying the baile folklórico and mariachi concerts in the plaza.
Dozens of entries. Four winners. One blood-curdling, fan-fueled frightfest.
The first Exotico® Mistico Film Contest was a pumpkin-smashing success. Fan submissions ranged from ghastly ghosts to creepy creatures in the night to true tales of terror. Some submitted pictures. Others toiled at the fright of an empty Exotico Tequila bottle. (Don’t worry, we’ve got you covered on that last one.)
Short films inspired by winning fan submissions were brought to life on the Social Screen and shared throughout October. Winners were sent a basket of movie night goodies to celebrate their cinematic debuts, to boot. We’ve compiled all the shorts below for you to enjoy, along with dreadfully delicious cocktail recipes to toast to another Halloween season done right.
Thanks to winners Amber Valmonte, Jeff Farris, Ariel Relaford and Desiree Mabe for all the thrills!
By now you probably know that tequila is good for more than Margaritas and doing shots long after you should have known better. You may have even navigated the liquor store or supermarket aisles only to encounter dozens of brands and types of tequila. We’re here to make sense of all this, and help you decide what makes a tequila worthy of an honored place in your glass or behind your bar.
