How to Make the El Rayo Tequila & Tonic

Are you Gin and Tonic-ed out? Well, I am having El Rayo’s Tequila & Tonic (or ‘T&T’) this summer.  

El Rayo was launched by childhood friends Tom Bishop and Jack Vereker. They had become agave-obsessed after opening a bottle of Añejo tequila brought back from travels to Mexico, quickly realising the category had more to offer than just the traditional spirit. After quitting their day jobs and spending a year researching tequila in Jalisco, they were inspired by the vibrancy of modern Mexico. To help others uncover the incredible depth of this rich culture, they teamed up with Maestro Tequilero Oscar Garcia and developed El Rayo.
