Sotheby’s Reside Magazine: ACTOR JUSTIN HARTLEY PLAYS AN ENTREPRENEURIAL ROLE WITH REVEL AVILA
9/16/21 – Happy Mexican Independence! In coming up with this year’s celebratory cocktail, we challenged our mixology team with a specific set of rules: 1) The drink must display all three colors of the Mexican flag, and 2) It must include at least one ingredient commonly grown in Morelos.
Wow, did this one not disappoint. A beautiful mix of coconut, cinnamon and ripe avocado (grown widely in Morelos). It’s an absolute must try.
The name of the drink “Cry of Dolores” is an ode to the call of arms given by Roman Catholic priest Miguel Hidalgo y Costilla in Dolores, Mexico on 16 September 1810 while ringing the church bell and essentially triggered the Mexican War of Independence.
1/19/21 – Just as Avila is the spirit of Morelos, The Cuernavaca is its’ signature cocktail, named after the state’s capital.

Internationally recognized, these Denominations of Origin zero in on the geography of where a product is made. For example, Avila’s cousin, tequila, is protected by its own Denomination of Origin which is defined by a very…
The next time you pour a glass of your favorite wine, think about where it came from. The quality of the soil in the vineyard and the care and attention paid by the farmers and winemakers. It all matters when it comes to producing its’ foundation – beautiful, healthy grapes. Just as there are multitude of grapes used to produce…
If you flip back a few chapters in the history books to ancient, pre-Hispanic Mexico, you’ll find that the agave plant was deeply rooted within the cultures of that time period and was surrounded by a mystique that’s as fascinating as it is dynamic.
10/9/19-The ideal fall cocktail for when you’re home for the holidays, this drink is like a boozy pumpkin pie in a glass. There are existing hints of spice already found in Revel reposado, not to mention the beautiful bourbon whiskey notes from its’ aging process, all of which bring out the spices found in this homemade pumpkin spice recipe. The sweetened condensed milk adds a decadent richness to the drink, making it the perfect fireplace companion
