Cocktail of the Week: Labor Day with AGWA

As Labor Day weekend is fast approaching, now is the time to start planning long weekend getaways, end of summer parties, and family gatherings. But before we can say hello to fall, celebrate the unofficial end to summer with a refreshing new selection of late summer cocktails by Agwa de Bolivia—the world’s first & only coca leaf liqueur.

AGWA de Bolivia presents delicious new summer into fall cocktail recipes.

Here’s a peek into how AGWA is made:  Wild Bolivian coca leaves are hand-picked at 2000 metres in the Andes and shipped under armed guard in 2000 Kilo Bales to Amsterdam to be macerated and de-cocainized. The potent high strength flavour formula is reduced to 60 proof, bottled and then shipped around the world in a more conventional format. AGWA is rapidly causing a stir in the food and beverage world.

Now…get your thirst on:
