Enjoy Tequila Tricks and Treats at La Fogata’s October Tasting
Herradura Tequila Featured from 7:30 pm to 8:30 pm October 11th and 25th
Cooler breezes are blowing, bringing fall and the traditions of Dia de los Muertos and Halloween to life, so the tequila experts at La Fogata are serving a witch’s brew of spooky spirits for you to enjoy. Learn a few tricks about tequila while treating yourself to one of La Fogata’s award-winning margaritas during their free October tequila tasting on Saturday, October 11th and 25th. And to make the evening even more flavorful, pair a margarita made with October’s featured tequila, Herradura, with Quesadilla de Flor de Calabaza, (otherwise known as pumpkin blossoms and white cheese on thick masa tortilla) and enjoy your fabulously flavored fall festive meal!
Based on their past experience drinking shots for effect vs. flavor, most people tend to shy away from tequila, but tequila offers a wide range of flavor to explore and enjoy. Top shelf tequilas are made only with 100% agave and are distilled to perfection, removing any impurities that would cause a pounding headache the next day. The cheaper tequilas you may have consumed as a youth were probably mixed with sugars are other additives, making them more likely to give you a hangover. This grown up version of the drink of youth gives you all the fun, minus the hangovers.
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 7:30 to 8:30 p.m. But if you can’t make the tequila tasting, don’t worry: La Fogata is featuring Herradura throughout the month of October, 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 October 11th and 25th, and before you head to your table for an amazing meal, be sure to stop by the tequila tasting table to learn more about Herradura.
