Don Julio unveils drinkable art

Don Julio cocktails The Don at M Restaurants

For those who like to interact with their art, here’s a multi-sensory experience you really should raise your glass to.

Sitting pretty at M Restaurants, The Don is an art installation created by tequila house Don Julio and design studio Accept & Proceed, that houses some rather tasty goods behind its façade – the clue is in the trio of nozzles attached to the piece.

At first glimpse, the artwork features an image of a Mexican sugar skull but as guests fill up their glasses, the piece slowly transforms into a portrait of Don Julio González, the man behind the tequila brand that bears his name.
