What to drink now: El Rayo Tequila

Move over G&Ts. Step aside Aperol Spritz. The trendiest new drink for Summer 2020 is El Rayo’s ‘Tequila and Tonic’ otherwise known as the T&T.

Designed to be savoured, not slammed, El Rayo’s T&T is shaking off the English stereotype of late-night shots and instead serving tequila in a completely new way – with tonic. This is about turning tequila into your first drink, not your last.

Predicted to be the most sought after drink this Summer, the T&T is best served in a highball glass, with lots of ice, crisp tonic, and a slice of bittersweet grapefruit. Packed with clean and natural flavours, El Rayo’s T&T is a chic and refreshing alternative to the tired G&T.

El Rayo’s beautifully crafted Tequila has been born from a desire to share the flavours of modern Mexico. The unique taste, which is 100% natural, comes from the slow-grown Blue Agave plant, which matures in Mexico’s highlands for eight years. Thanks to this sole ingredient, with natural herbal notes, El Rayo doesn’t need to add any additional botanicals or manufactured flavours.
