Toby Keith’s Blue Mezcalita
Take the edge off of summer heat with mixed drinks featuring Toby Keith’s signature 100% green agave Wild Shot mezcal.
It’s strong and smoky, but Wild Shot mezcal can help you cool off during hot nights this summer. Whether you’re grilling in the backyard, boating, camping or just battling a broken air conditioner in this heat wave, Wild Shot cocktails are the quintessential refreshment.
The “Blue Mezcalita” is an azure version of the margarita, as inviting as a sparkling swimming pool on a sweltering July day – and a bracing respite from the same. Another favorite is the fruity “All-American Jar,” which is served in its namesake: a Mason jar. There’s also “Swamp Water,” a sweet-and-sour brew made with Wild Shot mezcal Silver.
Toby Keith unveiled Wild Shot mezcal in 2011 with the battle cry, “Blame It on the Worm” and it quickly captured the palates of spirit connoisseurs. The handcrafted, 100% green agave, 86.8 proof concoction (available in Silver and Reposado) is the top premium Mezcal in the U.S. according to Beverage Media magazine. “I have always been fascinated with Mexico and the drink mezcal,” Keith says. “The tradition and history of mezcal is magical to me, and dates back to 16th century warriors celebrating the defeat of their enemies.”
