1921 La Crema Tequila Liqueur Scones Recipe

1921 La Crema Tequila Liqueur Scones Recipe http://wp.me/p3u1xi-4wTIf you’ve seen any of my social media posts then you know that I am big on baking. If I find a great flavored tequila I feel the best test for it is to use it in scones. If my crew of taste testers eats them up quickly then I know I have a winner.

That was exactly the case when I put 1921 La Crema into a batch of scones. These scones came out rich and fluffy with the perfect hint of caramel, chocolate, and cinnamon, the flavors you love in Tequila 1921 La Crema. A tiny dusting of cinnamon on the top of the scones simply adds to the appeal.

These are excellent for serving with coffee, tea, or a glass of 1921 La Crema.

Building Casa 1921

Women In The Tequila Industry: Anahí Rivera http://wp.me/p3u1xi-4zZOne of the more prized and beloved tequila brands of the past twenty years has to be Casa 1921.

Following a series of mishaps, poor business deals, and just plain bad luck by the owners of the brand, Anahí Rivera came to work in Texas for Casa 1921.

She was a fresh-faced twenty-something marketing graduate straight out of university in Monterrey, Mexico.

Eleven years later, she is the Brand Manager and partner in the importation company, Casa 1921 LLC.  Anahí has practically single-handedly grown the venerable brand and regained its traction and following in 34 states.

We were proud to have had Casa 1921’s wildly popular and much sought after La Crema expression on both Tequila Aficionado’s 2015 Dia de los Muertos Tequila And Mezcal Tour, and 2016’s Heartland Tour.

1921 La Crema Tequila Review

La Crema Tw

 

— LA CREMA DE MÉXICO —

It only takes a sip to become immediately enamored with 1921® TEQUILA CREAM LIQUEUR. Served chilled in a snifter, it’s a glorious way to cap off a marvelous dinner. The delectable liqueur also adds marvelous depth and dimension to cocktails. Hand the bottle to a talented mixologist and the creative possibilities become endless.

Introduced into the U.S. in 2005, the award-winning product is the only one of its kind made in Mexico. The liqueur is crafted in limited quantity. It is made with Mexican cream, super-premium 1921 Blanco tequila, a blend of Mexican flavors and a dash of coffee prior to being bottled at 15% alcohol (30 proof).

1921 Tequila Cream Liqueur is an international phenomenon in the making. The liqueur has a velvety textured, medium-weight body and the enticing aromas of cinnamon, caramel, nutmeg and expresso finish. Its soft, gentle entry quickly bathes the palate with a bakery-like assortment of flavors, including toffee, milk chocolate, honey, marzipan and freshly brewed coffee. The long finish is well balanced and supremely delicious. The liqueur’s charm and sensational taste make it a valuable addition to any beverage program.. **By Robert Plotkin

FEATURES
