If you’re looking to celebrate the Day of the Dead with spirits (the cocktail kind), Sauza Tequila created some festive drink recipes and party tips to help you pull off the perfect Dia de los Muertos bash.

Get your soiree started with a toast to the living and the dead. Margaritas inspired by the holiday, like the Moonlit Margarita, Marigold Margarita, Sugar Skull Margarita and Catrina’s Classic Margarita, will have those on the other side wishing they could come back for a sip.

In addition to the to-die-for drink recipes, Sauza suggests the tips below to give your celebration life –

· Incorporate Marigolds: Said to guide the spirits, marigolds can be used decorate your party space or to create a fun and festive floral crown

· Dress the Part: Paint your face to represent the iconic Sugar Skull. Here’s a quick how-to video created by Sauza in case you need some inspiration: https://coynepr.sharefile.com/d-sdb6aedecd544a04b

· Mexican Meals: Pay homage to the holiday’s country of origin by serving up traditional favorites like Pan De Muerto or “Bread of the Dead”

Cheers!
