Join the Factory. Live the original men's lifestyle.

It’s the American way -a day of family, friends, good food, and of course, incredible drinks. While the grilling options that everyone picks from varies from the simple hamburger to the even greater steaks, with some of my friends even roasting a whole pig for the festivities, it will all be happening outside in the heat and sun. While some options out there for drinks might feel a little refreshing, we always recommend highlighting any outdoor grilling session with a good tequila cocktail. This incredible liquor is always perfect for being in the sun and keeping your internal temperature down and an overall refreshed feeling, and the fine folks at Hornitos have some of our favorite varieties.

Now, it would not be a 4th of July celebration without some specifically themed recipes, and as always, our good friends at Hornitos have delivered some of the best we have had this year.
