As I mentioned in my presentation at the Fiery Food Show, cocktail recipes can be intimidating, particularly when you’re trying to make drinks quickly. Now that we’ve had an introduction to tequila, it’s time to get serious about cocktail recipes.
Outside of the origins of tequila, which we discussed in part 1 of this series, it’s arguable that the kinds of tequila are even more critical, especially when you’re out shopping. Here are the 5 primary types of tequila that we talked about at the Fiery Foods Show.
If you missed the Fiery Foods Show this year, then you also missed a fun presentation on tequila and tequila cocktails by yours truly. With Cinco de Mayo on the horizon, it’s definitely a perfect time to summarize that presentation in a written format, so you can all benefit from the knowledge and enjoy some great tequila between now and May 5. I’ll include a classic recipe with each post, too.
Whether you want to show your support for Mexican heritage—or if you’re simply looking for an excuse to whip up sangria and enchiladas, Cinco de Mayo is a holiday worth celebrating!
Last Christmas, the fat guy in the red suit brought me a Cabela’s Pro Series electric meat grinder and I’ve been dying to try it out. Cinco de Mayo gave me a great excuse to do that. I turned 4 pounds of boneless pork butt into homemade patty chorizo, but that was just the start of what turned into a really fun grilling idea for the holiday.
Contrary to popular belief, Mexican hooch isn’t all about fruity beer, worms, and margaritas. Not that there’d be anything wrong if it were. I’ve spent whole weekends living off of nothing but those three things, and aside from a recurring facial tic and a few flashbacks, I’m fine.
Because we loves us some Deano’s Jalapeño Chips, we’re helping them spread the word about this special Cinco de Mayo offer: a blended mix of jalapeño and habanero cheddar chips, which will be available for a limited time only.
