This coconut tequila cocktail is the ultimate late summer drink

The 'Walk In The Tropics' cocktail using Cazcabel Coconut tequila

Looking for a cocktail that will transport you to tropical climes? We’ve found the perfect drink to make summer last even longer. 

It’s made possible thanks to the discovery of the sweet Cazcabel Coconut tequila, a fabulously fruity addition to any party – or your drinks trolley. The Cazcabel tequila range is about as authentic as they come, produced in an independent micro distillery in the highlands of the Jalisco mountains in Mexico, and made using 7 year old blue weber agave, which is crushed and distilled using local, traditional methods for a super smooth spirit. 

Now, this coconut edition takes the distillery’s dry, earthy blanco tequila base and blends it with the sweetness of succulent Mexican coconuts and crisp citrus notes. It’s sweet enough to serve with pineapple juice alone for a refined (and easy) twist on a classic Pina Colada, or even simply make a Coconut & Tonic by mixing with tonic water and finishing with fresh lime. 

But, we’ve found the ultimate recipe for ultimate late summer vibes in a glass: the ‘Walk In The Tropics’. It’s made using Cazcabel Coconut, rum and fresh juice. Here’s how to make it – and keep the party going for weeks to come…

Familiar American comfort food gets a middle East interpretation at Epicurus, a stylish new eatery that’s opening in Camden’s bustling Stables Market. Part of the site’s North Yard expansion, the restaurant is the brainchild of Shiri Kraus and Amir Batito, who created waves with The Black Cow, a similarly themed steak house down the road…
