Confessions of a Mixologist: Margarita Classics

Tagged:

Take Your Margarita to the Top Shelf. There’s a reason that when you think Mexican food, the first cocktail that comes to mind is the margarita. The citrus and sweet character is a timeless match with spicy, salty, saucy Mexican cuisine. If you’re looking to impress, these two tips will help you make the perfect, crowd-pleasing margarita:

 
Better Ingredients Make a Better Margarita. Start with tequila you actually like, and build from there. Milagro Reposado is delicious, a great value, and works as a solid foundation for a margarita that overdelivers. Also, try an orange liqueur with a brandy base, such as Grand Marnier, to give your drink a layer of complexity beyond the sweet orange of less expensive triple sec.

 

Use Fresh Lime Juice. Sure, margarita mix is an easy solution – just add tequila, right? But all that sugar tends to overpower most other flavors – from the tequila in your drink to the flavor of the food, too. Not to mention the extra calories! Fresh fruit juice and a good orange liqueur offer just enough sweetness for a fresh and balanced cocktail.

The Whiskey Hotline Goes to Casa Noble

Tagged:

Casa Noble Tequila

 

We fell in love with Casa Noble years ago, after tasting the tequila and meeting owner and distiller Pepe Hermosillo. This exceptional producer uses organic 100% blue agave, distills thoughtfully and ages in heavily toasted French oak. The careful combination of agave balanced by high quality oak is breathtaking – the same quality shared with world class whisky or Cognac.

 

The Whiskey Hotline traveled to Casa Noble in the town of Tequila to find the best. After exhaustive tasting, we returned with two barrels each of three expressions, picking pairs of barrels to ensure supply. Of course, there are always subtle differences across single barrels, but we chose duets that downplay differences, seeking similar barrels that overdeliver within their style.

Confessions of a Mixologist: Veel Geluk

Tagged:

Veel Geluk, which means ‘good luck’ in Dutch, is a mix of genever from Holland and raspberry liqueur. If you’ve ever had genever you are aware it can be tough to swallow on its own. When mixed with the raspberry liquor the sweetness balances out the bitterness of the gin. Bartender Angie created this cocktail and enjoys mixing it up for her husband. Give it a try at the Lincoln Park Tasting Room, or mix one up at home.
