Agwa brews

You don't have to stick to the "Bolivian Kiss Ritual" (biting a lime and then taking a shot) to get your Agwa kicks. We dug up dozens of drink recipes. Here's a handful of our favorites:

Agwa Bloody Mary
Mix 1.5 ounces of Agwa, 3 ounces of tomato juice, three drops of tabasco sauce, 1/2 teaspoon of Worcestershire sauce, a juiced lemon, and a dash of salt and pepper. Shake with ice, strain into a glass, and add a lime wedge.

The Agwa Fresca
Squeeze and drop two lime wedges into a glass, add ice, then add 2 ounces of Agwa and 1 ounce of soda water.

The Agwa Dragon
Serve 1/3 part Agwa in 2/3 parts hot green tea.

Backstage Pass
A splash of Agwa, a splash of Crown Royal, and a splash of Rockstar energy drink, chilled in a shot glass.

Cocarana
