August is Agave Month! Following July’s 80s month celebrating the Anniversary of Cocktail’s release, August is Agave Month. All month we’ll be learning more about the spirits of Mexico (and beyond) and reimagining classic cocktails using Agave spirits.
This month’s Agave focus will also be an opportunity for me to expand my knowledge – I know the basics but its a huge category so you can join me on my journey of discovery as we learn more about Agave as a plant as well as the spirits it produces.
