Zozobra can't stand to be left out of anything that Santa Fe prides itself on and that includes the famed Santa Fe Margarita Trail! Zozobra’s cool signature margarita, the ZozoRita, was created in 2015 by the amazing talents of Southern Glazer's Wines and Spirits, which has offered its generous support to Zozobra and the Kiwanis Club, year after year. The ZozoRita would not exist without them, so Kiwanis extends Zozobra-sized thanks to these great partners!

This year, for the first time, the collectible glasses were available for sale online as a two-pack – one is the loneliest number – and net proceeds went even further to help Kiwanis help kids! Thank you, Southern Glazer's!

The ZozoRita will be back again in 2021 in time to toast the 97th Burning of Zozobra on Friday, September 3, 2021, so that each time you mix up this tasty treat, you'll have a delicious memory of your gloom being extinguished with Zozobra!

Our partners at Southern Glazer's Wine & Spirits have even called on some professional talent to provide a how-to video that shows you how to shake up a perfect ZozoRita with Espolòn Tequila and Grand Marnier! Watch below to become an expert home mixologist!

Here's the recipe for this amazing cocktail, created by the Southern Glazer's Wine & Spirits team:

  • 1 ½  oz Espolòn 100% de Agave Blanco Tequila
  • ½ oz Grand Marnier
  • 1 ½ oz Fresh Lime Juice
  • 1 ½ oz Simple Syrup

Add all ingredients into a mixing glass and fill with ice. Cover with Mixing tin and shake vigorously to mix. Strain into a salt-rimmed ZozoRita glass filled with ice.  Garnish with a lime wedge.

You can substitute the fresh lime juice and simple syrup with your favorite Margarita Mix and the experts at Southern Glazer recommend Organic Tres Agaves Margarita Mix or Sweet'n'Sour such as Mr. and Mrs. T.

Crafted with upscale Espolòn Tequila and Grand Marnier, the ZozoRita has become every summer's hot ticket for a cool cocktail, served by some of Santa Fe’s best mixologists at patio dining spots and watering holes throughout the city. 

Locals and visitors alike have been enjoying this fresh twist on a Santa Fe favorite, which comes with a seal of approval from Zozobra himself!

2020 may have been an especially gloomy year but that was all the more reason to enjoy this unique cocktail because it also offered a way to give back to Santa Fe kids. If your favorite watering hole doesn't carry it yet, ask for it, and remember that thanks to the generosity of Southern Glazer's, $1 from every glass goes to help the Santa Fe Kiwanis Club fundraising activities that help area nonprofits that make life better for kids.
