Guys, did you know that tomorrow (7/24) is National Tequila Day?
Since it’s technically a National Holiday, I’m sure your boss won’t mind you imbibing a bit during your lunch break, right?
If you’re looking for a place to enjoy all of that agave goodness, look no further than Cabo Fish Taco. The good folks over in Noda will have $7 Espolon Tequila shots and $8 Espolon Three Amigos Margaritas! You should stop by and celebrate, tell them I sent you!!
2014 has been such a great year for us, not just for me and boozinQC but also for the Queen City. We’ve had some pretty great cocktails come out of some of our favorite bars this year and I want to take a moment to highlight my favorites.
The Stow Away
Made by Stefan from Heist Brewery, this Sailor Jerry Tiki cocktail is sweet, fruity and perfect for warmer weather.
Sailor Jerry Rum
The Scotchie Pippen
This cocktail has been etched into my memory since the day I had it. Created by Andy Maurer at Soul for a tasting event with Glenfiddich Brand Ambassador, David Allaridice. It’s not readily available now but I’m sure the fellas at Soul could make a great substitute.
Pure Intentions Cold Brew
Glenfiddich infused whipped cream garnish
Roasted Jalapeno Margarita
While margaritas aren’t normally my go-to cocktail, my friend Krissie adores them. When we tried this gem from 1900 Mexican Grill, we were both surprised by how refreshing it was.
The Root Daiquiri
You wont find this in Charlotte, but it’s close. Sovereign Remedies in Asheville is home to this incredible drink. With fresh ingredients, it is damn tasty.
The Paloma is a quintessential summertime cocktail and lucky for Charlotte, Kyle Crabtree from Block & Grinder has put his own twist on the classic. Check the recipe out below then make plans to head over to B&G to try it out for yourself. Yay tequila!
