We want to help you to spice up your evenings with chilli and tequila, so we’ve teamed up with the global Rooster Rojo Tequila brand, to give each of three lucky Hidden members a bottle of this fine Mexican spirit!
Judging by the popularity of chilli sauces, there’s never been a time in the UK when Jalapeno Peppers and Chilli have been so popular.
This Autumn, fire up your cocktail hour by celebrating these spicy ingredients and pair them with some authentic Rooster Rojo Tequilas. Rooster Rojo Tequila is the choice of many top bartenders all over the world, so you’ll be able to create that hot Mexican vibe at your home and make some professional quality cocktails.
Rooster Rojo Reposado (38% ABV) is one of a range and is available at Ocado and Amazon. Made in Tequila, the city in Mexico at the heart of tequila making, it uses 100% Blue Weber Agave, just as tequilas should.
With Chilli Month in October just around the corner, try this enticing variation on the classic margarita recipe, which is in tune with the chilli theme.
