Feliz Dia de los Muertos

If you slept through November 1 like I did fret not. You can still celebrate the second day of Dia de los Muertos, the Mexican holiday that celebrates loved ones who have moved on.

Start with a viewing of the best (only?) Day of the Dead-themed movies, Coco or The Book of Life. If I had to choose only one then definitely go for the Pixar pic.





If you love the vibrant colors of Dia de los Muertos, you'll love the vibrant prints from artist David Lozeau. I own one tiny original that I absolutely love, but luckily he offers more affordable prints in a variety



Finally, no Mexican celebration is complete without a margarita. But if you can barely move after a hectic Halloween season, who has time to make one from scratch. I've finally found the BEST margarita mix on shelves today. It's made by Tres Agaves who also makes tequila but I haven't tried it. The Margarita Mix is flavorful with a tangy but not to tart lime pucker and sweetened with agave instead of corn syrup which adds an earthy finish. I preferred a 3 parts mix to 1 part tequila with my preferred tequila, Don Julio AƱejo (I know, I know you're supposed to used silver tequila in margaritas but it has no flavor).
