We’re continuing our Lobos 1707 bartender challenge with 10 new cocktail recipes to help countdown to National Tequila Day on July 24th.

To celebrate all things tequila, Lobos 1707 challenged 100 Chilled 100 Bartenders to create cocktails using their range of tequilas. Each bartender developed a unique cocktail that builds off of the spirit emphasizing the unique tasting notes.

Launched in October of 2020, Lobos 1707 tequila is made from Blue Weber Agave grown in the rich soil of Altos de Jalisco. After six years, the plants are harvested and transformed into a beautifully crafted spirit that is aged for varying periods before being finished in Pedro Ximénez wine barrels.
