Get Back in the School Spirit: Test Your Taste Buds with Peligroso Tequila
Peligroso Tequila Featured from 7:00 pm to 9:00 pm , Saturday, September 13th
Summer is drawing to a close and tequila class is in session! Following in the back to school spirit, La Fogata is once again schooling their guests in the nuances of tequila during a free tasting on La Fogata’s patio. Who knew learning could be so fun and delicious??
Based on their past experience with the drink, most people tend to shy away from tequila. While “one tequila, two tequila, three tequila, floor” might have been something you were used to hearing in college, thankfully both tequila and you have grown up. Top shelf tequilas are made with only 100% agave and are distilled to perfection, removing any impurities that would cause a pounding headache the next day. The cheaper tequilas may have also been mixed with sugars or other additives, making them more likely to give you a hangover. The pure, grown-up version of the spirit gives you all the fun and flavor, minus the hangovers.
Forget everything you know about tequila and let the masters at La Fogata educate you. When drank straight up, tequila is meant to be sipped and savored like a fine scotch or bourbon, rather than taken as a shot. Swirl the tequila in the glass, take a small sip and swish the liquid around your mouth for a few seconds, allowing your taste buds to pick up on the tequila’s unique flavors. Swallow, enjoy and repeat—no salt or lime required!
The free tasting table will feature the premium tequila served both straight up and mixed in one of La Fogata’s award-winning margaritas. The tasting table will be open on La Fogata’s main patio from 7:00 to 9:00 p.m. on Saturday, September 13. But if you can’t make the tequila tasting, don’t worry: La Fogata is featuring Peligroso throughout the month of September, so you have the opportunity to try the tequila by ordering it in your favorite drink at La Fogata.
Featuring longtime favorites alongside all-new cocktails, aperitifs and margaritas inspired by member of La Fogata’s “extended family”—its most loyal guests—the restaurant’s new drink menu is the perfect way to expand your drink palette while exploring tequila flavors. Enjoy a fabulous night at La Fogata on Saturday, September 13th, and before you head to your table for an amazing meal, be sure to stop by the tequila tasting table to learn more about Peligroso.
