We were beyond excited to venture to Miami for our first Art Basel this past weekend. What an incredible experience! While there, we had the pleasure of teaming up with esteemed mixologist, Anastasia Forte, who helped us create an exclusive tequila cocktail, the Say I Love You, for an event we sponsored for the Dr. Brandt Foundation and hosted by the National Basketball Wives Association. We were looking for cocktails with a party vibe that weren’t overly sweet. This refreshing cocktail Anastasia created perfectly showcased our clean and versatile tequila.
Anastasia credits her creativity behind the bar to her mother, who was equally as creative in the kitchen. For Anastasia, her mother is her inspiration—she always affirmed that “There’s nothing she can’t do!” If you happen to be in Miami or are lucky enough to be a Miami local, catch Anastasia bartending at Blackbird Ordinary in Brickell. If not, make sure to give this tequila cocktail a try and let us know what you think!
