Happy Days of the Dead from all of us here at Team Ocho! 

If you aren’t familiar with Días de Muertos, it is one of the most important national holidays in Mexico. 
Celebrations start on October 31st, when children make altars to invite angelitos (spirits of dead children) to return to visit. Next is November 1st, when the spirits of adult souls visit. On November 2nd, families usually go to cemeteries to visit the tombs of their deceased relatives, often bring ofrendas, or offerings. The three days of celebrations usually involve cempasuchil (marigolds), sugar skulls, pan de muerto (special bread), papel picado, and offerings of many different types.

We’ve got lots of news this month, scroll down for more! 
Days of the Dead

If you’re in London for Days of the Dead, head down to Cafe Pacifico. Cafe Pacifico always hosts one of the best Day of the Dead parties in the city, and this year is no exception.

Live mariachis, face painters and even a procession through Covent Garden will bring the Mexican festival to one of our favourite London restaurants. There will of course be special Ocho Tequila cocktails served alongside their unbeatable Mexican food, just ensure you save enough room for the Piñata candy once it breaks!  

More info here.

If you find yourself further East this weekend, East London Liquor Company will also be celebrating Days of the Dead with Tequila Ocho. 

Last weekend, Ocho was proud to sponsor ReelHouse‘s Halloween party in Boston. Click here to see more.

Further West, in Durango, CO, El Moro Spirits & Tavern also included Ocho in their Halloween celebrations, which included a food pairing and raising money for Bat Conservation International
