Cempasúchil Cubes by Clase Azul

Celebrate this year's Day of the Dead with Clase Azul's limited-edition tequila, Dia de Muertos Edition.

By Samantha Coles

Cempasúchil, meaning marigold in English, is the flower of Dia de Muertos. The golden flower is used as it is believed that the spirits of the dead visit the living during the yearly celebration, and the marigold’s vibrant color and fragrant scent help to guide the spirits.

Clase Azul‘s newest release, Dia de Muertos Edition, is a limited-edition expression to celebrate the Day of the Dead. It is a blend of Clase Azul Plata, Reposado, and Extra Anejo Tequilas. It comes in an exquisite hand-crafted bottle, of which there will only be 1,000 bottles available in the US.

This recipe uses the symbolic flower and the limited-edition release — it is almost too pretty to drink.
