November 01, 2021  •  Leave a Comment

Hey There!

Happy November 1st! Hard to believe we are coming to the close of 2021 already! I know we have just celebrated Halloween but we are not ready for Thanksgiving and Christmas just yet! So, let's talk about something else! Today through tomorrow, November 2nd, signifies the celebration, Dia De Los Muertos (Day of the Dead).  The focus during this time is to show love, respect and remembrance for friends and family who have been lost. Dia De Los Muertos is celebrated in many Latin countries however it originated in Mexico so we decided to share another Mexican staple, the margarita! We hope you enjoy! As always, if you make any of our drinks, take a picture and share them with us online! Instagram ---> @ staynfocusimages
