Add A Tequila Twist To Your Christmas List With 1800

Why not adopt a new brunchtime beverage that’s sure to kick-start every gathering: try an adventurous rendition of the Bloody Mary, using tequila instead of vodka, the 1800® Bloody Maria. It’s a flavour explosion of tequila, spice and tomato that’s the perfect accompaniment to festive feasting and is super easy to create at home.

Tequila is not just for shooting – it’s the most versatile spirit around, gloriously smooth in texture and great for concocting cocktails. A more characterful spirit than vodka, tequila works especially well with tomato juice, adding a complex, vegetal earthy depth of flavour to a savoury cocktail that’s on-trend. 

If you’re planning a gathering and want to be the host with the most, or you have a budding mixologist in your life to buy a gift for (tequila is a fantastic spirit for creating a whole host of delicious classic cocktails) then head to Selfridges throughout the month of December to buy a bottle of 1800 Silver.

With every purchase you’ll receive all the ingredients you need to make an 1800 Bloody Maria, for free.

Here’s how to concoct an 1800 Tequila Bloody Maria that’s sure to impress your guests:

In fact, with just 11 ingredients (not including tequila and tomato juice) you can make more than 1800 cocktail flavour combinations. Try a Bloody Maria with wasabi, umami paste or porcini powder – whichever way you choose, you won’t be disappointed.
