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!
It’s the most wonderful time of the year. That’s right, it’s the Day of the Dead season. It’s the celebration from which our sugar skull was born. The festivities, the colors, the families coming together – we can’t get enough of it.
You probably have your own favorite reasons for getting together with your girlfriends—book club, Bunco, a new episode of “Bachelor in Paradise” or just whatever. And really, who needs an excuse? Now, thanks to Muy Bueno Cookbook, we have what might be the best reason of all for a girl’s night (or day) celebration—Berry Tequila Rosé Sangria.
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.
One of Many Delicious Ways Austin Stays Weird
Today we put the spotlight on something of a cocktail mystery—a cultural and culinary mishmash called the Mexican Martini. Once we get to the bottom of this tasty concoction we think you’ll want to grab this one by the longhorns and add it to your list of favorite ways to enjoy tequila.
