  3. The Whiskey Hotline: Casa Maestri Tequila Blanco Flask

    With the weather warming up, its hard to beat a crisp, clean, citrusy blanco tequila. Casa Maestri produces many different tequila brands out of their distillery (NOM-1438 for you tequila geeks at home) but this one in particular caught our attention with it’s added value, a flask! Not just any flask, but a 1.75 liter flask. Not only is the tequila great, but since the flask goes to 11, we mean 1.75, this is not a deal to pass on.

  5. Confessions of a Mixologist: Margarita Classics

    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.

    Better Ingredients Make a Better Margarita. Start with tequila you actually like, and build from there. Also, try an orange liqueur with a brandy base, 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.
