'Tis the season for family, friends and festive cocktails. Toby Keith's Wild Shot Mezcal offers the perfect libation for cold nights and good times with two cocktail recipes tailored for Christmas and New Year's - the new Wild Shot Baked Apple and the classic Wild Shot's Red Solo Cup.
Wild Shot's namesake certainly has plenty to celebrate as the year draws down. From his successful Toby Keith Interstates & Tailgates Tour Presented by Ford F-Series to an acclaimed new single "A Few More Cowboys," 2016 has been another example of high-level consistency. And if that's not enough to get in the spirit, there's always "Red Solo Cup (Holiday Version)." Watch here.
With the rapid rise of mezcal in the United States, Wild Shot has become an unqualified success as the premium brand leading the market. Imported from San Luis Potosi, Mexico by Shaw-Ross International Importers, Keith's signature spirit is quickly claiming market share. Recent additions include 36 stores in New Hampshire and a yet-to-be tamed growing popularity and presence across Toby's native Oklahoma.
