It’s almost time for Halloween and, with that, comes the Day of the Dead. If you’re looking for a spooky Mexican-themed cocktail, consider this one, made with Hornitos Reposado Tequila. The word “reposado” means rested, and it refers to the fact that the tequila has spent time aging in barrels — hence its beautiful gold colour. As for the Hornitos brand, it was created in Jalisco, Mexico in 1950.
