Hornitos Tequila, a member of the Sauza family helped Eva Longoria and Todd English celebrate the highly anticipated opening of the Latin-infused restaurant, Beso, Spanish for "Kiss," on March 6th. Partygoers sipped on specialty cocktails including the Beso Margarita and Spanish "Kiss," created with Hornitos Tequila, the fine line of premium, 100% pure agave tequila, while also enjoying globally-inspired dishes like the Hornitos Tequila Scallop Shooter and Hornitos Tequila Margarita Lollipops prepared by Beso's executive chef, Todd English.

Many of Hollywood's most influential tastemakers and celebrities, gathered for a night of fine dining and Hornitos cocktails including owners Eva Longoria Parker, Todd English, Jonas Lowrance and JT Torregiani, and guests Felicity Huffman, Nicolette Sheridan, Sheryl Crow, America Ferrera, William H. Macy, George Lopez, Roselyn Sanchez, Mario Lopez, Michael Bolton and many more.

"Beso personifies the smoothness and edge of Hornitos, and we are honored to toast with Eva and Todd to help them celebrate the grand opening and we wish them great success," said Andrew Floor, senior brand director, Sauza. "The Hornitos line of tequila offered different variants for all of Eva and Todd's guests, with Plata enjoyed in cocktails like the Beso Margarita and Spanish Kiss, shooting with Reposado and for those who wanted to savor opted for the sophisticated Anejo," continued Floor.

Last year, Hornitos launched one of the brand's most aggressive advertising and re-positioning campaign in years, supported with a $15 million marketing spend. Hornitos, originally available as a Reposado tequila, just unveiled two additional variants - Hornitos Plata and Hornitos Anejo. With the addition of two new variants, Hornitos also introduced its sip, shoot and savor strategy in direct response to an evolving category and consumer demand for a Hornitos variant for all consumption occasions. Sip, shoot and savor educates consumers on the diversity of tequila, where Hornitos Plata is versatile enough for mixed drinks, Hornitos Reposado can be enjoyed as a shot, and the more complex notes of Hornitos Anejo are slowly savored.
