Celebrate Día De Los Muertos On Napa Valley’s Tequila Train

Enjoy one of Casa Dragones signature cocktails at the Tequila Train celebration for Día de los Muertos.

In case you're not familiar, the Mexican holiday falls just after Halloween and is a celebration of loved ones who have passed away. Rather than being a sad, maudlin occasion, though, the holiday is a colorful celebration of life and death. And what better to celebrate than with delicious food and drinks in hand.

Napa Valley's Tequila Train will have two upcoming trains: The Spirit Train, a one-night party taking place on Saturday, October 27, ahead of Día De Los Muertos; and the Napa Valley's third rendition of the Tequila Train. The one-night-only celebration will be held on Thursday, November 1, and it starts off with a welcome Tequila Casa Dragones signature cocktail. The three-hour journey follows a scenic trail as a four-course meal is served. In honor of the holiday, authentic Mexican dishes like Tamal de Camote and Ribeye con Chichilo will be served. Guests can take a celebratory shot of tequila at the Day of the Dead altar that's on board and sip on cocktails while a live DJ performs.
