Ringing in the new year, a major collaboration between Jumby Bay Island and iconic tequila brand Casamigos has landed in Antigua. Enter the Casamigos Margarita Beach Shack, an exclusive pop-up that will include a Margarita Hotline which delivers cocktails to villas, suites, and private residences on demand.
Jumby Bay Island is located on an exquisite private island in one of the most untouched areas of the world. Luxuriously remote, the beautiful resort is only accessible by boat. The island does not use cars, instead equipped with bike paths throughout the resort. The 300-acre location boasts 28 elegant suites, 14 luxury villas, and 22 Private Residences.
Founded by long-time friends George Clooney, Rande Gerber, and Michael Meldman, Casamigos is a brand born from tequila-filled nights with friends. Launched in 2013, it delivers small-batch, ultra-premium tequila made from hand-selected 100% Blue Weber agave. This partnership is sure to impress, and it could not have come at a more perfect time; as Jumby Bay reopened in November to unveil 28 brand-new suites.
The Casamigos Margarita Beach Shack is the star of the collaboration, a vibrant beach bar at the center of the Jumby Bay resort. Lively yet relaxed, the shack is decorated with branded touches and colorful accents. The menu will include signature cocktails crafted for the resort by the Casamigos team of expert mixologists. Standout drinks include the Spicy Cucumber Jalapeno Margarita, a refreshing drink with a bit of a bite, and the Casa Ginger Mint Paloma, a sweet and citrusy cocktail perfect for a day on the beach.
The Casamigos Margarita Beach Shack is sure to deliver a vibrant experience for anyone looking to get away from cold weather and escape to a fun-filled beach spot. For those looking for a more private, leisurely experience, all is not lost. The beach shack comes equipped with a full-service option on wheels, a mobile bar aptly titled the Margarita Hotline that will appear at a moment’s notice, anywhere, anytime. The bar is stocked with margaritas, icy-cold shots of tequila, and even spiked popsicles. For guests with a special occasion, the pop-up bar can be set up on their property, and guests also have the option of having their fridge pre-stocked with Casamigos spirits as well as ingredients for cocktails – honestly, what could be better?
