Party Like it’s 1862 with Novikov and Casamigos Premium Tequila

We might still be in the midst of lockdown but thankfully London’s Novikov Restaurant & Bar won’t let that stand in the way of your Cinco de Mayo celebrations.

Involving lashings of – what else but – tequila, or to be more exact Casamigos, the ultra-premium, multi- award winning 100% Blue Agave brand co-created by George Clooney, the Mayfair favourite hangout is spearheading festivities with the chance to win this boozealicious gift!

The winner will be partying like it’s 1862 (when the Mexican army surprised everyone, not least themselves, by thrashing the French at the Battle of Puebla) with a bottle of Casamigos Blanco, two bottles of lemon tonic and an array of branded merchandise such as a shaker, two cantarito glasses, margarita candies and sun glasses.

The winner will be picked at random on DJ Sally K’s weekly Lockdown Mix on 17th May, allowing them to be fully prepared for 22nd May when World Paloma Day recognises Mexico’s national drink – tequila & grapefruit soda.

All you have to do is follow @novikovrestaurant and @dj_sally_k on Instagram and make a post tagging @novikovrestaurant and three of your amigos that love tequila using hashtag #CasaDeNovikov

While you’re waiting to see if you’re the chosen one, why not try your hand at making this simple cocktail – the Casamigos Tommy’s Margarita?

Simply combine in a shaker 50 ml Casamigos blanco, reposado or mezcal, 25 ml lime juice, 10-15 ml agave syrup and two dashes of orange bitters.

Shake and serve with an orange or lime wedge.

and for when we are finally out – Novikov Restaurant and Bar, 50A Berkeley Street, London W1J 8HA

In the meantime, Novikov are doing a series of IGTV cocktail making classes for you to make in your own home – – the espresso martini is looking very appealing right now – well it’s after 11am right?!
