Day of the Dead with KAH Tequila

Head to Tesco and mix these glorious cocktails

Head to Tesco to get into the spirit of the season ahead of Day of the Dead, the famous Mexican celebration of lives lived. Make sure you look out for KAH Tequila to be ready for all that cocktail mixing. And we have some glamorous, exotic seasonal cocktails to get you into the right spirit.

KAH Tequila Blanco is the obvious choice for these occasions, available in the skull-adorned bottle that is stocked exclusively by Tesco and available in over five hundred stores nationwide (£35 for a 70cl bottle).

Despite its reference to death, Day of the Dead – or Día de los Muertos – is a joyful holiday which has been celebrated for some three thousand years. Whilst it is called ‘Day’ of the Dead, this is in fact celebrated over two days – on 1st and 2nd November. The customs are based on the belief that the departed are not remembered with mourning and sadness, and therefore the lives they lived should be celebrated with the foods, drinks, and activities they enjoyed while still alive.

The glamorous KAH bottles truly embrace the spirit of the event. KAH Tequila (40% ABV) is a superb, super-premium Mexican tequila, and the liquid is beautifully smooth. Made with 100% Blue Weber Agave, KAH (meaning ‘life’ in the ancient Mayan language) is hand-crafted in Tequila, the town in Mexico which gives its name to this category of fine spirits.

We bring you some cocktails designed especially by the KAH mixologists for Day of the Dead 2022.
