Last Halloween, Manila was able to celebratein a different way. 3 days before the actual celebration, the Philippines experienced the first-ever Mexican Day of the Dead festival sponsored by Jose Cuervo, the leading tequila distributor in the world. Savoring top-shelf tequila drinks while enjoying a Mexican party result in a fun-filled night filled with Mexican culture.
I remember 6 months ago, I visited the Jose Cuervo distillery in Tequila, Guadalajara, ticking off one of the recommended things to do in Mexico off of my list. Why not? Tequila is one of Mexico’s contributions to the world as champagne is of France’s.
Out of over 1000 tequila brands worldwide, Jose Cuervo remains to be the largest producer and exporter of this liquor.
There was actually one authentic Mexican experience that I hadn’t done yet until that night: is to witness the celebration of the Day of the Dead (Dias de los Muertos). Well, I finally felt like I was part of it, thanks to this festival.
A Mexican fiesta or party wouldn’t be complete without irresistible tequila. The Eye was flowing with unlimited Jose Cuervo tequila drinks at lower prices, ranging from silver tequila to the añejos type. It‘s a matter of one’s taste preference, but Jose Cuervo has a line of tequila products to meet each person’s needs.
If there’s an occasion where tequila shots could be enjoyed endlessly, this was it. A shot or caballito of tequila was never enough with the overflow of tequila drinks on the floor. The most popular among the ladies was the Cuervo Marigold, which is a mixture of Jose Cuervo añejo and margarita. Other drinks there included Jose Cuervo Reposado, Silver, Black Coke and Silver Margarita.

Mexican food is one of the things that should never be missed out when in a Mexican fiesta. Hard-to-resist Mexican snacks or antojitos were everywhere along with the tequila-filled drinks. My favorite antojitos at the party were the quesadillas, nachos and Tex-mex style burritos. Other snacks that were widely served included cheese sticks and croquettas de queso.
