    Republic Tequila – Organic Reposado Tequila

    Republic Tequila Reposado is an organic tequila made with 100% Blue Agave. We’re tasting it only days after reviewing the Republic Tequila Plata to see how the more mature product compares to its sibling and how it holds up to our expectations of “Reposado” (rested) tequila.  The Republic Tequila Reposado begins its life as a plata which is then aged in American oak barrels for eight months to become what we see as the the reposado. The scents of this […]

  • Hot Apple Toddy

    The Hot Apple Toddy is much like the original toddy but with some apple cider. This is a good holiday drink with seasonal flavor and style, it’s warm so it will be good for those chilly days after shoveling a pile of snow. Or, for those that don’t get snow, just enjoy the fact that you don’t and we do. Show Links: Print The Recipe

  • Republic Tequila – Organic Plata (Silver) Tequila

    Republic Tequila – Organic Plata (Silver) Tequila

    My curiosity is peaked, I’ve got in my hand one of the only Mexican Certified Organic 100% Blue Agave Tequila’s in the market today. Republic Tequila has released a great bottle design to their “Organic Plata” tequila which is molded to look like the state of Texas. However, the bottle design isn’t huge, overdone or a big shelf eyesore, it’s fairly small in stature and looks more like a shelf decoration than a bottle of tequila. As a matter of […]

  • Sex on a Mexican Beach Cocktail

    The name says it all, Sex on a Mexican Beach. The name is more of a play on the original “Sex on the Beach” recipe becaues of the included juice flavors, however, this cocktail brings in the Tequila spirit to change the beach location to Mexico. Overall, I find this recipe to be more of a fruitier margarita play more than that of a sex on the beach. If you like margarita’s or hoped for a sweeter play on the […]

  • La Bomba Cocktail Recipe [video] – with Caramba Reposado

    La Bomba Cocktail Recipe [video] – with Caramba Reposado

    The La Bomba cocktail brings back our tequila spirit, this time with Caramba Reposado. The orange flavorings are refreshing, great body and textures without a hugely overwhelming tequila taste. Of course, the elegant look to this cocktail (complete with grenadine) resembles a frozen popcicle which draws humans to the cocktail like flies to a flame. Checkout our review of Caramba Reposado too.

  • Caramba Tequila Extra Añejo Review

    Caramba Tequila Extra Añejo Review

    This will be my first official write-up of a Tequila classified as “Extra Añejo.” The new extra añejo labeling is placed on all Tequila’s that have aged more than three years so we’re working with a really mature product. I’m going to dig right into it because I’m too excited to hold back any longer. First, the color has to be mentioned in Caramba Extra Añejo because it’s so dark and copper toned much like a freshly polished copper pipping. […]

  • Caramba 100% Agave Reposado Tequila Review

    Caramba 100% Agave Reposado Tequila Review

    I’m back to tequila, of course, pouring myself a few glasses of Caramba Reposado both at room temperature (“straight”) and on ice. This tequila pours a nice light golden copper as many reposado’s do, considering their slight age (usually in oak) helps bring out some neat color. The bouquet is a potent agave with a sweet nectar-like flavor near the tail end of my initial sniff. Taking a deeper sniff continues the strong agave but uncovers a hidden white pepper […]

  • Don Pilar Añejo Tequila Review

    Don Pilar Añejo Tequila Review

    This week I’m working on the Añejo style tequila again because sipping tequila brings me great happiness. Don Pilar Añejo is a stylish looking liquid with a bright gold/copper color with seductive clarity. The scent on the pour was very subtle and hard to note at first, many añejo tequila’s I’ve had the opportunity to taste had a very potent nose from the pour to the raising of the glass. However, the low level of flavor profile upon the pour […]

  • Añejo Tequila Tasting

    Añejo Tequila Tasting

    Please Note: We recently found out our bottle sample of Partida Añejo was bad. After receiving a new bottle, the “sour” taste reported in this video went away and it was smooth as it should have been. Sorry for the mis-communication, bad samples do happen from time to time. We’re topping of this week with a little tasting before the 4th of July. Just incase you’re going to be out and about drinking Añejo tequila, here is a few brands […]
