Bacardi is the MTV awards show's first-ever official spirits partner
The VMAs now have an official cocktail — and you can make it at home!
Bacardi is the MTV awards show's official spirits partner — a first! — so naturally they concocted a perfectly on-theme drink that music's biggest stars will be sipping on Tuesday night when the show airs live from Prudential Center in New Jersey at 8 p.m. EST.
This year's VMAs will be a celebration of 50 years of Hip Hop culture and music and the beverage pays tribute to one of the genre's greats: The Notorious B.I.G.
Bacardi also dreamed up two additional drinks for the big night: the BACARDÍ 808, a blend of rum, banana liqueur and angostura bitters garnished with orange; and the Mango Fuego, which includes mango chile rum and grapefruit juice, topped with tajin and lime.
Whether mixing up themed beverages or hosting an at-home watch party, fans can expect a magical music-filled night.
On Saturday, it was announced Cardi B and Megan Thee Stallion will perform their new collaboration "Bongos," which marks the two Grammy winners' first follow-up since their hit “WAP" — which they performed together during the 2021 VMAs.
Viewers can get in the spirt of the celebration at home with the recipe for the Mojito Mo-Problems, the official cocktail of the 2023 MTV VMAs, below!
