To celebrate National Margarita Day on Friday 22nd February, Jose Cuervo Tradicional is calling all Margarita fans to be part of a collaborative online project to create the world’s first social media Margarita masterpiece by sharing pictures of themselves enjoying their own Margarita traditions using the #LiveTradicional.
The masterpiece will be inspired by the iconic, vintage, 1960s Cuervo adverts that helped drive the Margarita phenomenon. It is the top selling cocktail in the US and the sixth favorite cocktail in the world. Award-winning visual artist Helen Marshall, who uses photography, storytelling and technology in her work, will give a modern twist to the Margarita masterpiece. The final artwork will be revealed on the brand’s social media channels on National Margarita Day.
Several bars in London will also be celebrating Margarita Day by creating their own twists on Cuervo Tradicional Margarita, including Café Pacifico who will be offering their Cuervo Tradicional Kombucha Margarita and Cuervo Tradicional Watermelon Margarita.
Tequila fans can join in the festivities at home, making Cuervo Tradicional Margaritas with the new limited-edition Jose Cuervo Tradicional bottle (RRP £15) available from nationwide Tesco stores and online. The limited-edition bottle features a stylish skull design inspired by the iconography in Mexican culture. Cuervo Tradicional is a modern tequila that is rooted in family tradition that started more than 200 years ago. The 100% blue agave is harvested from the family estate and produced using the same small-batch method originated by José Cuervo himself back in 1795. The result is a more refined and perfectly balanced tequila.
The Cuervo #LiveTradicional campaign will also include the UK wide Cuervo Tradicional Margarita Rumbles in May. Bartenders in London, Manchester and Bristol will battle it out to win the ultimate title of best Margarita judged by hundreds of consumers.
