Milagro Tequila Named Official Tequila Of The Sacramento Kings
Today, the Sacramento Kings and Milagro Tequila announced a multi-year partnership as the “Official Tequila” of the Sacramento Kings. Bringing its authentic Mexican flavors to the City of Trees and basketball fans alike, Milagro Tequila will be available throughout Golden 1 Center for the next two seasons, offering guests the opportunity to sip all six Silver, Reposado and Añejo expressions of the brand’s award-winning Core and Select Barrel Reserve range.
A dedicated Milagro Tequila bar, located on the Plaza Level of the arena, will be home to the signature Milagro Sactown Margarita, a refreshingly crisp cocktail that utilizes the brand’s 100% blue agave to upgrade courtside drinking to a new level.
Milagro Sactown Margarita:
- 1.5 parts Milagro Silver
- ½ part Brovo Sacramento Orange Liqueur
- 4 parts Preservation and Co. Margarita Mix
- Garnish with lime wedge
Kicking off the partnership, the Kings and Milagro Tequila are hosting a local competition to choose the artwork for the Sactown Margarita Cup. Combining the Kings focus to source locally and Milagro Tequila’s focus on local Mexican artists for content, the two sought to use Sacramento-based artists to bring a different element to the new Sactown Margarita. Starting today, September 17th, the three artists – Ernesto Cardens of SAVDESIGNS, Nick Jacoy aka Pasta Nick and Jason Vu of 13th Vision – will have their designs featured in a campaign where fans will be able to vote on their favorite to be featured on the cup of the Milagro Sactown Margarita.
“The Kings and Milagro Tequila have mixed tradition and creativity to form the ultimate partnership,” said President of Business Operations John Rinehart. “The Milagro Sactown Margarita – a blend of local Sacramento flavors and Milagro spirits – is the perfect debut of this collaboration and we look forward to working together throughout the seasons to create new experiences to share with fans.”
“The pioneering spirits of both Milagro Tequila and the Sacramento Kings epitomize each brands’ passion and drive,” said Milagro Senior Brand Manager, Jill Palais. “Beginning with Milagro’s Mexican roots and our sense of spirit inspired by Mexico City, we understand the importance of homegrown pride, and no one has more passion than Sacramento Kings fans. Working together under one roof is a natural fit.”
Sacramento Kings Season Ticket Members will be invited to exclusive pre-game tastings of the award-winning Milagro portfolio.
