Tequila & Rum National Days

National Tequila Day (Weds 24 July) and National Rum Day (Sat 13 July) 

El Rayo Tequila is crafted with 100% slow-grown blue agave. Serve in a classic T&T (Tequila & Tonic) for a taste of Mexico for those balmy summer evenings, (which are hopefully on their way soon). El Rayo is the creation of Peckham-based Tom Bishop and Jack Vereker and Maestro Tequilero Oscar Garcia, with the stunning bottle designed by Mexican artist Mario Ballesteros. The taste of Plata has been created with Tonic in mind. El Rayo means ‘the lightning” in Spanish. (RRP £34, Sainsbury’s)
The T&T is a deliciously smooth and light experience. It’s clean. It’s natural. It’s fresh. Designed to start your night, not end it.

Add 40ml El Rayo Plat to a highball glass with ice, top up with premium Indian Tonic and garnish with a fresh grapefruit ice for the perfect T&T.
