Day of the Dead, or Día de Muertos, is a Mexican tradition that gathers family and friends to pray for and remember those who have died. The celebrations take place on October 31, November 1 and November 2, in connection with the Christian triduum of Hallowmas: All Hallows’ Eve, All Saints’ Day and All Souls’ Day, and have become extremely popular in North America. While these celebrations honor the dead, Día de Muertos is very much in-keeping with raising the “spirits” of those around, and seeks to spook and delight as much, if not more, than it’s Halloween counterpart.
This Día de Muertos, Male Standard welcomes you to join us in celebration with Peligroso Cinnamon Tequila, made from 100% Weber blue agave tequila and deliciously pure cinnamon. Whether celebrating those who are near or far, this symbolic sweet n sour Paloma recipe is a terrific choice for setting the tone of the festivities ahead!
