This Sunday is National Mezcal Day and Toby Keith hopes everybody will celebrate with his brand of mezcal called Wild Shot and a special drink that was created by bartender Steve Brooks of Kentucky’s Tumbleweed Tex Mex Grill & Margarita Bar called the Red Solo Cup ‘Rita.
It involves Wild Shot Silver Mezcal, Imported Orange Liqueur, Fresh lime juice, Agave nectar, Cranberry juice, Grenadine and a gummy worm. If that’s not your style you can also try the Blue Mezcalita or an All American Jar.
Recipes for those drinks and more, featuring Toby’s mescal, can be found on Wildshot.com.
