It’s not too late to enjoy summer themed cocktails! At least not according to 1800 Tequila. This company continues to employ its original distillation process, using authentic masonry kilns and copper pot stills. The age-old traditional formula is crafted with Weber Blue Agave plants grown in the mineral-rich volcanic soil of Jalisco, Mexico, and aged for eight to twelve years before they’re handpicked.

Are you intrigued? Get creative with their tequila by utilizing the recipes below:

Mona Se Queda (Inspired by the Daiquiri)

  • 1 oz Fresh Lime Juice
