by Andrew Chalk

With the start of the NBA 2021 season fast approaching on October 19th, basketball fans eagerly await the upcoming games and the chance to entertain around them. 1800 Tequila offers the perfect elevated cocktail options to enjoy during the kickoff of the official NBA season, ideal for enjoying the upcoming games at home, whether in a small gathering or a larger viewing party! In addition, 1800 Tequila’s sponsorship of the New York Knicks and Brooklyn Nets – with 1800 Cristalino named the official tequila of the Nets and the Barclays Center – makes 1800 cocktails the perfect gameday pairing for fans of either team.
