Spring has sprung, the birds are chirping and another Cinco de Mayo is upon us.

For tequila brands, Cinco de Mayo is the Christmas celebration of the industry — an avalanche of promo opportunities, elaborate parties, new releases and free advertising. This year, many recognizable brands have bet big on sweepstakes.

From $1,000,000 worth of guacamole to Cuervo-branded flip phones, we’ve compiled a list of every major giveaway that’s been launched in honor of Cinco de Mayo 2023. Most of these promotions will expire by the end of the week, so you might want to act fast.

Don Julio – Tequila ATM

Don Julio has announced the construction of an outlandish Tequila ATM (“automated tequila machine”) in the heart of downtown New York City where they’ll be giving away free alcohol vouchers.

If you don’t live in New York, fret not. From May 1-7, the brand will be giving out $500,000 worth of “Don Julio Cincos” through their Instagram Story, redeemable on Venmo for $5 each.

Teremana Tequila – $1,000,000 “Guac on the Rock”

Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson has pledged $1,000,000 worth of guacamole to tequila drinkers across the nation.

This is a surprisingly easy one — if you buy a Teremana Tequila cocktail alongside an order of guac, simply submit a photo of your receipt online and wait for reimbursement on Venmo. Johnson’s birthday happens to fall on May 2nd, so perhaps he’s feeling particularly charitable around this time of year.

Jose Cuervo – “Dumb Phone” Giveaway

In one of the more inexplicable Cinco de Mayo promos, tequila-giant Jose Cuervo has encouraged fans to “unplug” with the giveaway of hundreds of flip phones.

Fans who enter the sweepstakes will be entered for a chance to win one of these so-called “dumb phones” as well as a handful of $50 vouchers. It’s an odd giveaway for sure, but one that will surely hit big on the Gen Z zeitgeist.

1800 Tequila has launched a “URL + IRL” shop where they’ll be selling a variety of candles, wooden cutouts, leather jackets and more. The in-person pop-up is stationed in LA, where they’ll be hosting live music, an open bar and photo stations.
