The curators of AF and The Lucky Taco have a hot collab customers won't want to miss this summer - Lucky AF Grapefruit Margarita. The 250ml cans deliver crisp sour notes of sparkling pink grapefruit with a kick of peppery overtones. They feature Mexicana-inspired artwork commissioned by Otis Frizzell. Because every margarita should be served over ice with a salt rim around the glass, a bespoke serving of The Lucky Taco’s infamous Chilli Salt is included with all Lucky AF sold.
“This is the first time AF has collaborated with a brand to launch a new product, and we couldn’t think of a better partnership to kick things off. The Lucky Taco is so iconic with Auckland foodies, so when Sarah Frizzell first reached out to the AF team after she started her own sober curious journey, it was a no-brainer that AF and The Lucky Taco should collaborate at some point,” said Lisa King, AF Founder.
A number of customers requested an alcohol-free margarita when visiting The Curious AF Bottle Shop in July. The drink has been on the cards since AF first launched. Otis and Sarah from The Lucky Taco helped with the initial tastings, they introduced AF to The Lucky Taco’s Chilli Salt.
“As soon as it was paired with Lucky AF, we knew we had a winner and needed to include it as part of the final offering. The Lucky Taco’s Chilli Salt works magically in lifting the taste profile of our sparkling grapefruit margarita – so much so we’ve crafted The Lucky AF Perfect Pour, a recipe that gives people the opportunity to enjoy the perfect AF margarita – served over ice with a chilli salt glass rim,” said King.
Lucky AF is a limited-edition can. It is available in packs of 12 or 24 on the AF website or exclusively at Countdown from mid-November.
