Agave Girls Night!
All of this led to the margarita challenge with restaurateur, Larry Mindel, and the rest is history.
|My restaurant, Copita!|
It had been a while since the Agave Girls gathered together, and I thought we were overdue for a reunion. So, last week, we made it happen. Thirty women met at my restaurant, Copita Tequilaria y Comida! Jaques Bezuidenhout from Partida Tequila got things started with a "Dr. T", a refreshing cocktail made of Partida Blanco, Dr. Loosen Riesling, lemon and agave nectar and a hint of Laphroaig 10yr single malt. Delicious! Then Chef Gonzalo and the team brought out shrimp tacos ingeniously wrapped in jicama tortillas with a lime tartar sauce. Outstanding!
Everyone sat down to a flight of Partida tequilas and we had a lesson in tequila production and aging while the cooks created our next courses. Then came the cocktail to end all cocktails: the Partida Ruby, a surprising concoction of Anejo Tequila, Ruby Port, cinnamon-chili agave nectar and lemon juice. Everyone said “This tastes like the best Christmas present!” From Fried Oyster Tacos, Duck Confit Tacos with Tamarind Mole to Goat Birria, everything paired well with tequila (arguably, the most food-friendly spirit there is!).
Can't wait to see you ladies there*!
