Reggaeton superstar J Balvin and Buchanan's Whisky are raising a glass to honor and celebrate the many contributions and impact of the Latinx culture in this country. The partnership has, as a result, cocktails that draw inspiration from local ingredients and unique flair. 

The first recipe is a spicy take on the Mexican-inspired Spicy Whisky Paloma. By replacing tequila with whisky, you can add an elevated smoky flavor to your traditional Paloma. Brand partner, J Balvin, nods to his Colombian roots using some of his favorite cocktail ingredients in the Buenas Vibras to “continue raising a glass to the innovators.” The cocktail redefines the classic whisky Old Fashioned with citrus flavors and pineapple juice that will transport you straight to the city of Medellín.  

Cheers!
