On April 29, 2014, Roger Clyne & The Peacemakers unleashed their seventh studio album, The Independent.  The title fits these musical mavericks like an old pair of faded jeans worn as a statement against oppression on Casual Fridays.   Yet, as Clyne states, “There’s something about our music that celebrates what’s uniting versus what’s dividing.”




Mexican Moonshine, Mexican Moonshine…Let your heart and your cup overflow, under the glow of the moonshine!  May your heart and your cup… Overflow…under the glow of the Moonshine!

Using this “Tequila Logic,” Roger Clyne has managed to do the same with Mexican Moonshine, gently hitching the spirit’s Lowland agave heritage to the wood notes of Kentucky bourbon to create a peacemaker that rightfully belongs in any collector’s arsenal.

New Tequila Aficionado App for Android

Necessity is the Mother of Invention

Mobile browsers don’t always work as quickly as we’d like them to.  With all the trips we make to liquor stores and cross referencing we need to do with the Tequila Aficionado website and Nom List, we knew we could find value in an app.  What we weren’t sure of was whether our readers could benefit from it. 

The Android App is Born

So we’ve created an android app (we’re android people) that we continue to build upon to serve our particular needs, but we’d like it to serve your needs as well.  If you choose to give it a try, please feel free to email to tell us how we can improve it for your particular tequila loving needs.

Get our app in the Google Play Store here.

For those of you on iDevices, we’re working on an app for Apple and will launch that soon.

What is Cinco de Mayo?

Cinco De Mayo (5th of May)

la batalla

According to Wikipedia:

Cinco de Mayo (Spanish for “fifth of May”) is a celebration held on May 5. It is celebrated in the United States[1] It is also celebrated in parts of Mexico, primarily in the state of Puebla,[note 1][2][3][4] where the holiday is called El Día de la Batalla de Puebla (English: The Day of the Battle of Puebla).[5][6][7]

It “is a much bigger holiday in the United States” than Mexico, especially in the western and southwestern states.[8] It originated with Mexican-American communities in the American West as a way to commemorate the cause of freedom and democracy during the first years of the American Civil War,[9][10] and today the date is observed in the United States as a celebration of Mexican heritage and pride.[11] In the state of Puebla, the date is observed to commemorate the Mexican army‘s unlikely victory over French forces at the Battle of Puebla on May 5, 1862, under the leadership of General Ignacio Zaragoza Seguín.[3][12] Cinco de Mayo is not Mexico’s Independence Day—the most important national patriotic holiday in Mexico—which is celebrated on September 16.[3][13]

Why do we celebrate?

As of the 2012 census, Hispanics make up 17% of Americans and 65% of Hispanics are of Mexican descent.  Here in San Antonio, the population is over 63% Hispanic so you can bet we take any excuse to celebrate Mexican heritage very seriously.  Since we don’t really need an excuse to celebrate springtime, let’s get to the important stuff like HOW to celebrate!

How do we celebrate Cinco de Mayo?

Since Cinco de Mayo falls on a Monday, most people are planning to celebrate over the weekend prior.  That’s when you’ll find most bars and Mexican restaurants running their promotions.  For history buffs, we recommend watching Cinco de Mayo: La Batalla on Netflix or some other streaming service.

If you’re planning a Cinco de Mayo celebration at home or with friends, check out our Cinco de Mayo Pinterest board for ideas on drinks, foods and decorations.

Sauza’s Latest: Make it with a Cowboy Should Make You Laugh

sauza-2-290x290Sauza Does it Again

If you haven’t read my commentary on the Sauza marketing campaigns, you can catch up here.

Safe to say, I’m not a big fan of the dumb tequila commercial.  After watching all of the Sauza commercials, I’ve come to the conclusion that Sauza really wants to make us laugh with these ad spots.  Their hope, I’m sure, is that this ridiculousness will go viral and name recognition will spread.  They just want people to remember the name so the unknowing will buy Sauza brands when they walk into a liquor store.  I’m probably contributing to their mission but the latest campaign is just too lame not to share.  I’m still not keen on Sauza products, but if you must buy them, please buy 100% Agave tequilas.


Make it With a Lifeguard

Complete ridiculousness.  Don’t mix your drinks this way, but do laugh loudly.



Make it With a Fireman

Sidenote: A kitten does not make light beer better.




Make it With a Cowboy

He’s brushing the horse incorrectly.




Juicy gossip from a cowboy? Thanks, no.



The stirring part is just too silly not to laugh.
