Do you have a (completely rational) fear of tequila? Many people STILL associate tequila exclusively with slamming shots, overconsumption, margaritas, or low-quality, mass-produced spirits that they probably were introduced to in their undergrad days. If your only experience with tequila has been like this—well...you’ve been missing out. In this Tequila Appreciation experience you will be presented with a flight of four tequilas. Different flights will be chosen at my discretion. Like professional tasters all tastings will be done blind. You won't know which tequila you're drinking until the the end. Free of marketing hype, bias, and previous experiences, this will give you the opportunity to experience tequila in a whole new way—using only your senses! As we go through each tequila, you will be asked to jot down and score your experiences. What aromas and flavors can you identify? What is the finish? You don't need to be an expert, and there are no wrong answers. At the end you will walk away (or maybe walk with a little sway) with the knowledge to order like a pro the next time a tequila menu stares you in the face. Ready to 'up your tequila game' with something new?! I strongly believe there is a tequila for everybody, so join me for an evening of fun and conversation with new friends while imbibing on the 'Nectar of the Gods'!
I'm Rosaly, AKA The Tequila Diva, a lifelong world traveler based in New York City. As a true lover of good food and drink I became compelled by an inherent love for delicious tequila. I dove into the world of this agave spirit with true passion. What captivated me was the amazing diversity of aromas and flavors. I noticed how much the quality varied, and became curious about the different categories and classes of tequila. As my tastes slowly began evolving, my curiosity grew to the point where I was reading everything I could get my hands on, and trying hundreds of different tequilas. That was the beginning of my tequila journey, and now I love bringing people together to rewrite the conversation around tequila. Let me show you how to imbibe tequila like a Mexican - a sophisticated agave spirit meant for tasting and celebrating.
All guests of The Tequila experience will receive a flight of four different tequila's, tortilla chips, salsa and fruit.
