We are quickly approaching summer and with social activities picking back up, this is going to be one to remember! Santo Spirits just launched their Reposado and has the most refreshing cocktails to serve at your backyard BBQ or enjoy during an at-home happy hour. Santo is the brainchild of rocker Sammy Hagar, and chef Guy Fieri. Together, the duo created a portfolio of 100% Blue Weber Agave expressions including Santo blanco, the world’s only Mezquila and a reposado that is rested in lightly charred, used American oak bourbon barrels.
For those tired of the usual and yearning for something different, Santo offers a higher taste, a higher quality, a higher experience – a higher spirit.
Impress your friends with the ultimate summer sipper, the Cucumber Cooler made with Santo’s newly launched Reposado. The ultra-pure agave flavor and refreshing balance of homemade cucumber simple syrup and mint are the perfect combination to keep you cool on those hot summer days ahead.
