Diva Tequila Truffles Recipe

Tequila Test Kitchen After judging some stupendous Suerte Tequila Truffles by Piece, Love & Chocolate for the 2014 Brands of Promise Awards, I decided to take truffles to the Tequila Test Kitchen.  Since the folks at Diva Tequila were kind enough to provide us with a sample for experimenting, I decided to create Diva Tequila […]

Cranberry & Orange Diva Tequila Scones Recipe

Cranberry & Orange Diva Tequila Scones I’ve found Diva Tequila to be particularly versatile in drinking, pairing, and cooking.  I’ve wanted to create a tequila scone recipe for some time now and am happy to announce that I’ve finally got a keeper!  These scones may be a little darker than yours might turn out as […]

Sauza Rescues Women by Dumbing Down and Giving Them Lousy Tequila

Originally posted on April 20, 2013 at www.LisaPietsch.com I am offended, and with good reason. All week, Beam Global has been talking down to me as though I’m 18 and haven’t a brain in my pretty little head.  Well, I’ve had it! “We’ve taken America’s #1 cocktail and made it even more refreshing by adding […]

Cuervo Cinge (Cringe) Review

I received a sample bottle of Cuervo Cinge just before the holidays.  The Cuervo marketing minions were hot to trot on this one and they wanted everyone’s reviews out before the holiday buying binge began. I gave the bottle a day to rest from its travels and then tasted some.  I wasn’t expecting something that […]

Holiday Recipe: Maple Liqueur Tequila Pumpkin Pie

    When I tried De La Tierre Maple Liqueur Tequila, I was impressed with the natural maple flavor that took me back to my childhood and tapping maple trees in Maine.  (Click on the QR code to the right to read my review.) Ever since then, I’ve been anxious to try cooking some favorite […]

Lisa Pietsch Spices it Up with Peligroso Cinnamon Tequila

I sat down the other evening to taste Peligroso Cinnamon.  I knew Peligroso was good to begin with so I aerated it with the Vinturi Spirit Aerator to allow it to show me what it had.  As it happens, Peligroso Cinnamon has all the right stuff.  This isn’t some girly bottle of silliness with all […]

Review of Grant MacPherson’s Word of Mouth by Lisa Pietsch

One of the benefits of working at Tequila Aficionado is that we’re often privy to tequila scuttlebutt.  When I heard whispers that Mary Clemente, boss lady of Jurado Tequila, was working on something with well-travelled celebrity Chef Grant MacPherson, I had to know more. It isn’t just about the tequila for me.  My interest lies […]

Founder’s Feature: Tequila Aficionado’s 1st Podcast, 7 Years Later

The preceding podcast was recorded by Tequila Aficionado’s Founder, Alexander Perez, on March 21, 2006. Sadly, many brands still persist in the Tequila Girl marketing that Alex mentioned over seven years ago.  Some brands believe they’ve evolved and took it a step further with Tequila Boy marketing.  I believe the true aficionado finds both of […]

LimaRita Tequila Lime Sorbet Review

By Lisa Pietsch Big things DO come in small packages! At first glance, this little, hollowed out lime stuffed with an airy, white sorbet and topped with the stem end of the lime seems like a very insignificant morsel.  One might be tempted to let something so small go unnoticed but, I’m here to tell […]

LimaRita Rocks (and we aren’t talking about that nasty beer drink)

On June 19th, we received a product to review and it completely blew us away.  Just to prove it, this is what Lisa tweeted: While Lisa collects her words for the official review of the LimaRita Sorbet (we should have never left the whole case with her), take a look at this! Check out LimaRita […]
