With Cinco de Mayo quickly approaching, El Luchador is the only drink you need.
The recently launched RTDs from El Luchador are the perfect can to grab this May 5. If going out and buying the ingredients for a Margarita doesn’t sound appealing, these pre-built cocktails will be an easy solution.
There are currently three delicious flavors: Classic Margarita, Paloma, and Blood Orange Margarita. According to the founder and CEO of 123 Sprits, David Ravandi, the brand took a less is more philosophy when creating El Luchador. The ingredients include raw sugar, sparkling water, real fruit juice, and 100% blue agave tequila.
Adding a garnish or putting thought into glassware is a great way to make a canned cocktail feel more elevated in a hospitality setting. Ravandi added, “It’s absolutely worth the time and effort it takes to add a creative garnish to an ultra-premium RTD like El Luchador.” The sleek cans have an 8% ABV so, the flavor and punch are already there. Adding any form of garnish is going to add texture and a visual appeal to the cocktail.
For the Classic Margarita flavor, pour it in your favorite rocks glass and add some fresh jalapeño slices for an extra kick. The crisp Paloma can be elevated with a grapefruit wedge and a sprig of rosemary, as fresh herbs are always pleasing on the eyes and add an earthy flare. For the Blood Orange Margarita, adding a slice of fresh blood orange to the glass and a sugared rim will really take this drink to the next level.
Cinco de Mayo is much more than just sipping on a Margarita, however. It’s an important celebration of Mexican heritage. If you’re going to sip and enjoy a nice tequila-based cocktail this year, make sure to celebrate with a drink that gives back like El Luchador RTDs. Ravandi concluded with, “Our tequila is produced with the utmost respect for the environment and the people who make it, period.”
