Cinco De Mayo × Santo Spirits

When it comes to celebrating Cinco de Mayo, tequila-based cocktails are the obvious choice. Honor Mexico’s victory with the authentic and bold flavors of Santo Spirit‘s premium Tequilas crafted in the highlands of Jalisco, Mexico. Rocker Sammy Hagar has harnessed his knowledge and experience in the spirits industry and Guy Fieri infuses his extensive culinary experience to create this amazing portfolio of tequilas including the incredibly smooth Blanco, the world’s only Mezquila, the perfectly rested Reposado and the recently launched Single Barrel Reposado.

Spend the holiday sipping on The Classic Santo Margarita, Sammy’s take on the beloved tequila cocktail. Mixed with a splash of Cointreau and ½ oz of Damiana Herb Liqueur, this traditional cocktail is simple and smooth, allowing the bold notes of Santo Blanco to shine. The full and complex notes in taste are complimented by earthy, white pepper and citrus aromas. Enjoy with or without a salt rim or blend with ice for a perfect poolside libation. 

Guy Fieri created his take on the cult favorite spicy margarita with the Santo Caliente Margarita. The perfect balance of spicy and sweet, this cocktail also includes fresh cilantro leaves for an herbaceous kick that will transport you straight to the beaches of Mexico. Guy recommends substituting the salt rim with his Rojo Rim recipe for even more intensity. You can find the full recipe HERE.

The Classic Santo Margarita

Ingredients:

  • 2 oz Santo Blanco Tequila
  • 1 oz Cointreau
  • 1 oz lime juice
  • Salt
  • ½ oz of Damiana Herb Liqueur (Optional)
  • ¼ teaspoon agave or simple syrup (Optional)

Method:

Mix all ingredients except the salt in a cocktail shaker filled with ice. Shake and strain into a cocktail glass with salted rim.

The Vines – Wine Club for Billionaires

As the world continues to adapt to the pandemic, many people are looking for new travel memberships and elite experiences to indulge in–luckily the answer for these individuals is two simple words: The Vines.

After many years of running the successful resort and having visitors from around the world, Michael decided to develop a sister project: a membership-only program with one goal, get people to know the world by making wine. Michael launched The Vines membership club in early 2020 and it has now evolved globally. The club has outposts and partners in seven regions around the world, including Champagne, Mendoza, Montalcino, Napa Valley, Priorat, The Mosel, and Willamette Valley, and they continue to expand beyond. 

In addition to traveling the world, members of The Vines are sent cases of wine throughout the year and are offered access to curated events centered around wine, food, culture and adventure. Over the course of the next five years, The Vines plans to offer winemaking in 12 different regions, as well as expand beyond winemaking, offering members a series of pop-ups like making Sake in Japan and Mezcal in Mexico.  

The initiation fees are $100,000 and annual dues are $1,500- $3,000 per quarter. Winemaking costs per barrel range from $7,000 to $37,000 based on site. The initial application questionnaire can be found HERE.
