The Sazerac Co. announced the launch of Mango Shotta, a mango-jalapeño-tequila shot, inspired by the traditional Mexican "mangonada" recipe, it says.
Mango Shotta combines high-quality tequila with the sweet, fruity flavor of mango and the bold, spicy bite of jalapeño for a shot experience unlike any other, the company says. And, with lower alcohol content than the average shot, Mango Shotta is the ideal complement to any gathering with friends— day, night or anytime in between, it adds.
"We're especially excited to introduce Mango Shotta because it's truly an offering driven by consumer trends and interest — inspiration came in large part from listening to beverage conversations on TikTok," said Lauren Selman, global innovation and commercialization lead at Sazerac, in a statement. "We set out to create something different than anything else on the market today that would appeal to a new and evolving drinker and Mango Shotta delivers — its unexpected flavor profile, lower 26% ABV and arresting orange color create the perfect recipe for Mango Shotta to become the shot of summer."
Packaged in 750-ml bottles, Mango Shotta is available in select markets including Illinois, Texas, Florida, Arizona, Ohio and South Carolina for a suggested retail price of $14.99 a bottle, and $.99 for a 50-ml shooter (local taxes will apply). Additional nationwide rollout is planned throughout the remainder of the year, the company says.
