Red, White and Booze

Meet Austin's 100% blue agave 80-proof tequila brand, Playa Real.

Sparklers, American flag sunnies, s'mores. You've got all the party favors, now you need a cocktail to kick your 4th into full skyrocket mode. Bring a big bottle of Playa Real Tequila. The new Austin-based spirit launched by Matt Davis - hubby to Kendra Scott - is made of three triple-distilled tequilas conceptualized in Mexico. And, woah - two of them are fruit-infused with mandarin and pineapple. We toasted with the team and got a recipe for an Independence Day sip that will have you singing from sea to shining sea.
