    Today may be Taco Tuesday, but in T minus 3 days the mother of all Mexican
    Holidays is upon us…Cinco De Mayo! My favorite way to celebrate is by hosting
    my own festive party at home. It’s simple, you just need: 

    • Mexican Food (set up a taco bar with a variety of
      tortillas, toppings and healthy proteins like chicken, shrimp, fish)  
    • Casual ,Colorful Decor (Colorful paper lanterns, fresh flowers, mexican
      blankets all create a laid-back and fun vibe)
    • Music (we stream our favorite party inspired playlist thru Spotify)
    •  Drinks (have a self serve bar with cold beer, and non-alcohoic
      options like juice and water but also WOW your guest with a featured
      cocktail or two)

    This year, I plan to serve tequila cocktails featuring
    Tequila Corralejo®, using their Blanco and Reposado expressions. If you never heard of this award-winning line of premium tequila, marketed by Infinium Spirits, it’s because it is one of the best-kept secrets in the tequila-industry. So I am so excited to share about this brand and offer you some drink recipes to make at your own Cinco De Mayo Party!

    Corralejo, which is already a top 10 Tequila in America was established in 1775 in the Mexican State of Guanajuato by Don Pedro Sanchez de Tagle. They use the ultra traditional methods of fermentation and double distillation with clay ovens used to cook the agave plant {which resembles a weird pineapple!} They use huge copper pot stills for the distillation.

    Their Blanco is bottled directly from these copper stills. I love love the shape of the bottle. Slender and elegant. It fits Corralejo’s brand messaging: “Those With Pride Stand Tall”. All of Corralejo’s bottles are produced at a glass factory also owned by Moreno, a few miles away from the distillery. In fact, the brand is one of a handful of tequila companies granted the right to produce tequila outside of Jalisco.

    Hubby played bartender and I played customer {perfect right ?} He always says when trying a new tequila you should always stick to a simple classic the first time to truly taste it. He made a classic top shelf Margarita: Corralejo Blanco, Cointreau, fresh lime juice and if you like simple syrup. Shake and pour in a highball glass. This allowed their blanco to truly shine.

    Next up was what he called a cucumber margarita.Follow above recipe but substitute Cointreau with Grand Marnier and add cucumbers to top it off. The cucumber infuse a fresh taste throughout the cocktail {and also look super cute in the drink}.Rim with sugar or salt.

    Their Reposado is aged 4 mos in 3 different types of oak barrels and is best enjoyed neat or on the rocks. This allows you to taste it’s complexity in it’s full glory. This splendid reposado was a double Gold Medal in 2007 San Francisco World Spirits Competition
