Just a week after the release of his latest single, “Drunk Americans,” Toby Keith will be celebrating National Mezcal Day on October 21 with his Wild Shot Mezcal, Toby’s signature spirit that has revolutionized its category of adult beverages. Toss a shot back and “blame it on the worm,” mix up a cocktail of specially crafted recipes from www.wildshot.com, or visit Wild Shot’s Facebook page for exclusive giveaways to honor the holiday.
This month will also welcome five lucky folks who have gone from being huge Toby Keith fans to proud Toby Keith drinking buddies as the winners of the first ever Drinks After Work Sweepstakes, conducted courtesy of Wild Shot Mezcal. Selected from over 100,000 Facebook and mail-in entries, Linda Tebben, Christel Meeks, Donna Watson, Sherri Singleton and Caroline Mann all won the opportunity to join the chart-topping singer, songwriter and entertainer for an afternoon drink.
The date was worked into a packed schedule that included his Shut Up And Hold On Tour Presented by Ford F-Series stops, as well as the Oct. 14 release of his new single, “Drunk Americans.” Though the contest closed Aug. 31, Toby fans can still celebrate with the Big Dog Daddy on Oct. 21 by enjoying a glass of Wild Shot after work that afternoon.
“Our Drinks After Work Sweepstakes surpassed our expectations with more than 100,000 fans entering,” says Wild Shot CMO Shawn Harlan. “I wish I was there to see all their faces when we announced the five winners. I will be lucky enough to thank them all in person when we have them together for our drinks.”
Fans who missed out on the sweepstakes this summer also had the chance to raise a glass of Wild Shot on tour, as the Wild Shot Mezcal inflatable bar made appearances at select dates on the nationwide outing. This was the third year going that portable watering hole went on the road with its headliner.
If you have your own bottle of Wild Shot Mezcal, you can mix up a cocktail at home. In a recent edition of Country Weekly, new recipes for the TK Campfire and the Wild Stay in Mexico drinks are exclusively featured in a two-page spread.
