Over the years, Kim Kardashian-West has said that she “hates” the taste of alcohol, but on Snapchat yesterday, the 36 year-old was seen downing Casamigos, a tequila owned by supermodel Cindy Crawford, husband Rande Gerber, and actor George Clooney.
“I know Cindy drinks this so I’m in!!!” Kardashian-West wrote as a caption in one shot.
The sudden interest in the alcohol campaign comes as a shock. She once told People magazine, “I do not drink alcohol at all…I’ve never really been a drinker. I hate the taste of alcohol,” according to The Daily Mail.
In the Snapchats, she is seen wearing a bikini, designed by Chanel, hair wet and slicked back, as if she had just gone for a swim, and downs shots of Casamigos for the camera.
Kardashian-West and husband, Kanye West, were in the Bahamas when she posted the pictures. West’s 40th birthday passed and the family jetted down to the island for his birthday bash. The family, along with North and Saint, stayed at a luxury villa with some close friends who joined them for the celebration.
Between the Paris robbery and easing herself back into the limelight, Kardashian-West has been very considerate of her surroundings. Extra security and a tight circle of friends are changes that have been made in her life. Only very close relatives and family-friends are told of the family’s whereabouts.
The interest in alcohol could be Kardashian-West’s big break back in the spotlight. But, it is unknown if her endorsement for the brand is paid or a sponsorship arrangement, which has people scratching their heads. The mother-of-two has been very vocal about not drinking.
