Toby Keith offers swamp water to thirsty patrons

Three-time 2012 Academy of Country Music Awards nominee Toby Keith introduces a splash of Mexico. Keith’s “I Love This Bar & Grill” restaurants (also nominated for the ACM’s as “Nightclub of the Year”) will be serving “Swamp Water” during the upcoming holiday.

Developed by the chain’s Las Vegas-based mixologist, Swamp Water is based around Toby’s signature Wild Shot Mezcal, which is made in San Luis Potosi, Mexico. Wild Shot is distilled from 10-year-old green agave plants. (See recipe below.)

Though the drink is designed to be served in a mason jar, exceptions might be made for red Solo cups in honor of Keith’s viral smash “Red Solo Cup.”
