About Saranna DeWylde

 

saranna dewylde

Saranna De Wylde has always been fascinated by things better left in the dark. She wrote her first story after watching The Exorcist at a slumber party. Since then, she’s published horror, romance and narrative nonfiction. Like all writers, Saranna has held a variety of jobs, from operations supervisor for an airline, to an assistant for a call girl, to a corrections officer. But like Hemingway said, “Once writing has become your major vice and greatest pleasure, only death can stop it.” So she traded in her cuffs for a full-time keyboard. She loves to hear from her readers.

Sipping Off The Cuff: Dulce Vida Tequila Blanco

Organic 100 Proof Dulce Vida Tequila Blanco

Alexander Perez and M.A. “Mike” Morales taste and discuss Dulce Vida Tequila Blanco.

 

Dulce Vida Blanco

Winner of the highest honor, the Double Gold Medal at the 2010 World Spirits Competition. Blanco tequilas are bottled immediately after distillation and Dulce Vida’s is as full bodied and vibrant as a good blanco gets. You’ll notice its pleasant herbal citrus aroma and its crisp, spicy flavor with a hint of white pepper and a sweet agave finish. Both delicate and intense, we think you’ll find that it’s perfect for margaritas.

100% Organic

Dulce Vida Tequilas sources its 100% organic agave from the Los Altos highlands in the Tequila region of Mexico. Because of the unique climatic characteristics and the air & soil, this area is well known for producing larger, fruitier agave, ideal for tequila. This organic agave ensures Dulce Vida makes tequila the way tequila has always tasted best: pure and powerful, free of any additives.

100 Proof

Dulce Vida produces the only 100° proof, 100% organic tequila in the world and has been nationally recognized as a brand rich in tequila heritage, earning top awards in numerous competitions. What sets Dulce Vida apart is a combination of product attributes, packaging, and taste profile – including Handcrafted Distillation, 100° Proof/Navy Strength, and Organics. 100° Proof provides Dulce Vida the purity, authenticity, and full agave taste that is the cornerstone of our brand. We make our tequila at 100° proof to fashion our spirit in an old-world means, cask-strength, the way spirits were enjoyed years ago.

Tequila Aficionado is proud to announce our new partnership

with the Latin Food Fest 

 

latin food fest

 

Tequila Aficionado isn’t just about the juice, it is about an entire culture, a beautiful blending of Tequila and Latino Culture.  That’s why we’re happy to announce that we’ve partnered with the Latin Food Fest to bring you the finest in Latin culture and cuisine.  This September, you’ll find Tequila Aficionado at the San Diego ¡LATIN FOOD FEST! Grand Tasting Village, the largest most attended annual Latin food, wine and spirits event in California.  

 

Saturday September 13 • 11AM–3PM • Embarcadero Marina Park North

Even for locals, it’s still almost impossible to sample every delicious Hispanic flavor that the San Diego region has to offer, but ¡LATIN FOOD FEST!’s Grand Tasting Village nails it.

Join today’s hottest Latin culinary stars, restaurants, local chefs, artisan food makers, winemaker, distillers, brewers and street food vendors for the largest and most attended annual Latin food, wine and spirits festival in California – with this deal for General Admission, Early Entry or VIP tickets.

With tasting tents stretching across the Embarcadero Marina Park North on the San Diego waterfront, taste a variety of local and international wine, spirits, food, and beer. Meet internationally acclaimed celebrity chefs who will be conducting cooking demonstrations and book signings. And you won’t want to miss the Top Chef, Best Restaurant and Best Dish competitions – our showcase of local culinary excellence.

 

Best of all – the food and drink samples are unlimited.

Throughout the festival, dedicated pavilions will focus on specific topics – ranging from the Wine Tasting Tent with over 100 wines from Spain, San Diego, Mexico, Chile and Argentina to the Beer Cabaña to our ¡Taste Baja! Pavilion and even a Spirits of the Americas Expo & Awards where distillers and mixologists will hold tastings of Bacanora, Mezcal, Pisco, Raicilla, Rum, Sotol and Tequila.

In addition to the tastings, the festival also delights other senses with live music by Latin jazz/classical/Latin pop sensations QUATTRO – a recent Latin Grammy nominee, an art show, and a silent auction of culinary supplies and memorabilia, which will benefit our non-profit partner Feeding America San Diego.

A VIP ticket grants early admission and access to the “VIP Playa” where each guest will enjoy gifts,  full pours of reserve wine, premium distilled spirits and craft beer, gourmet Latin food bites and hand rolled cigars – in a festive beach setting.
