With Thanksgiving right around the corner, enjoy the holiday for what it’s worth – good food, good drink, relaxation, and Thanksgiving’s slate of seemingly endless football games.

Hornitos® Tequila wants to make sure that you are properly equipped with a plan to get through each stage of the holiday. Using the tips below, you will be prepped and ready to get the most out of the day – from opening kickoff, right through dessert.



Stage 1: Thanksgiving Day Football
Hornitos® Tequila’s Char-Cold One is a refreshing beer-inspired cocktail that is perfect for starting your day. Sit back, put your feet up and watch football the way that it’s meant to be watched.
