West Hollywood Doesn’t Care about the 5th of May; This California Town Pours Celebrity-Crafted Liquor Daily

Gracias Madre’s Sour T-Iesal drink in West Hollywood, California

Margaritas became America’s most popular drink in the 1970s, kicking Wall Street martinis to the curb, and we never looked back.

(By the way, Casamigos is headquartered down the road in sleepy Malibu but it’s poured in all the cool be-seen spots in WeHo.)

There are plenty of places to let the spirit animal loose with Casamigos.
