Our pick of the weeks most interesting brand, article, podcast and video

27th September 2021

Sick and tired of wading through hundreds of articles in the hunt for a few interesting and useful ones? Look no further.

Brand

818

If you haven't come across Kendall Jenner's 818 Tequila then you must have been living under a rock. Having sold out her first run in less than 24hrs it is unlikely that Ms Jenner won't be increasing her bank balance with another run away business success. Whether it's a good tasting tequila or not, we're not sure it matters.  

Article

Podcast

The Tequila Sunrise

Enjoy Anders Erikson making a tequila sunrise...twice! These are two very different cocktails that share the same name. Originally created by Gene Sulit in the late 1930s/early 1940s, the tequila sunrise had crème de cassis and was topped with soda water. It wasn't for another 30 years that we see the orange juice and grenadine concoction we've come to associate with the tequila sunrise today. So getting as close to the original recipes as possible (that includes using store bought grenadine instead of homemade), you can decide which tequila sunrise comes out on top!
