CASAMIGOS COLLABS WITH JUMBY BAY ISLAND FOR BEACH SHACK POP-UP
Ultra-premium tequila brand Casamigos has landed at the iconic Caribbean private island resort, Jumby Bay Island in Antigua! Check out this new collaboration which includes the launch of a limited-edition Casmamigos Margarita Beach Shack pop- up featuring cocktails specially curated for the resort, and a Margarita Hotline for cocktails delivered to suites, villas and Private Residences by a Casamigos bar on wheels. Founded by long-time friends George Clooney, Rande Gerber and Mike Meldman, Casamigos is the product of tequila-filled nights with friends, with the name itself translating to “House of Friends.”
THE CASAMIGOS MARGARITA BEACH SHACK
At the heart of this partnership is the Casamigos Margarita Beach Shack – a laid-back, sunset beach bar offering a limited-edition Casamigos cocktail menu. Jumby Bay’s bartenders have been fully trained by Casamigos mixologists to serve up delicious cocktails, including the Casa Margarita and La Piña. Located in the vibrant center of the resort on Jumby Bay Beach, the beach bar embodies both brands’ ethos of bringing friends together in a fun and relaxed way with branded umbrellas, surfboards and glassware, creating a colourful backdrop and photo moment. The beach shack is hosting a weekly sunset beach experience, serving up ice-cold margaritas and smooth shots of tequila as the day turns to night. Other classic Jumby Bay experiences have also been given the Casamigos twist, like the Margarita Sunset Cruise, a sunset catamaran trip with specialty cocktails.
Jumby Bay Island has worked with Casamigos’ team of expert mixologists to craft a tailor-made menu of cocktails bringing varying taste profiles for the discerning consumer. The Spicy Cucumber Jalapeno Margarita combines Casamigos Blanco Tequila with fresh lime, simple syrup, cucumber slices and jalapenos, shaken and served over ice for a refreshing drink with a kick. The Casa Ginger Mint Paloma mixes Casamigos Reposado Tequila, grapefruit juice, fresh lime, sugarcane syrup, ginger syrup and mint in a long glass; the cool, classic Casa Repo Rocks is simply Casamigos Reposado Tequila just as the creators intended it – straight up and on the rocks. When the pop-up on the island concludes, Jumby Bay will continue the collaboration by serving Casamigos as the house pouring tequila.
1-800-TEQUILA – IT’S THE MARGARITA HOTLINE
On demand, anywhere, any time – guests need only call the Margarita Hotline and the Casamigos bar on wheels will appear. The mobile bar is serving freshly mixed margaritas, spiked popsicles and ice-cold shots of tequila. Villa and Private Residence guests can even request that a pop-up bar be set up on their property for a special occasion, as well as having the option of pre-stocking their fridge with Casamigos spirits and cocktail ingredients, so the tequila can be readily enjoyed in a craft drink, on the rocks, by the shot and at times, straight from the bottle.
BACK AND BETTER THAN EVER
Jumby Bay reopened on November 7 for the Winter 2020-21 season, unveiling 28 brand-new suites in collaboration with design firm Studio IDC. This returns Jumby Bay to the same number of rooms as when the hotel originally opened in 1983, making it more exclusive than ever. This year has also seen the relaunch of the Jumby Bay Sailing Academy. The Sailing Academy has been designed to teach guests the fundamentals of sailing with various courses available, tailored to all ages, from beginners looking to learn a new skill to experienced sailors honing their craft on Antigua’s famed waters. Another new addition is the Delphis Private Residence, which sits on its own peninsula with a private dock, gym, games pavilion, outdoor yoga pavilion, two freshwater infinity pools and a stretch of pristine private beach.
