Instead of hosting another wine and cheese party this summer, try inviting guests to a tequila tasting extravaganza. Here are some tips for hosting a great tequila tasting party from Secrets Silversands Riviera Cancun.
The tasting should include a few common types of tequila including Blanco, Reposado and Añejo. When choosing tequilas for your tasting make sure they are labeled with “100% agave” or “100% agave azul” – This label signifies that the tequila is made only from the blue agave plant and has been approved by a government inspector to ensure its purity.
Even though the tequila is the main event, at Secrets Silversands Riviera Cancun, we like to serve the “tastes” with sides of sour mix, lime, salt, Tabasco, tomato juice and Worcestershire sauce. It is also a good idea to have a variety of margarita mixes on hand, for those who prefer the taste of tequila in a margarita.
And don’t forget Mexican that food was made to accompany tequila. Whip up a batch of nachos, your favorite tacos or a variety of enchiladas to keep your guests satisfied.
