Happy Wednesday! Wanted to share an amazing paired dinner the Husband and I got to attend last week. This was a tequila dinner with a host from Don Julio, Sergio Garcia. As usual, the pairing choices were fabulous and we had a blast.
Great margaritas, great flavors, and an absolutely wonderful setting. We had the opportunity to get a little background on the company as well as try 4 variations on their tequila (5 if you count the pre-dinner marg).
After my margarita, it was on the appetizers. I could have eaten about 10 more of these Empandas. They were amazing and crispy. I would have licked my plate if it had been just the Husband and I.
Next up was Gazpacho. I got to eat a bowl and a half. More chunky than I expected and as I powered through my second helping (the Husband’s) I really started to notice the spice. Looks like this will be a great summer patio food!
The main event was next. In my head, fish was the main event so I was more than pleased when a gigantic steak arrived. As we chatted about different types of spirits and aging processes, I completely finished my plate. Didn’t really even pay attention to what was going on. I must have been starving. The salad was excellent and the avocado was exactly what the tequila needed. The flavors were a perfect balance with the Don Julio.
And then there was dessert. This is the Husband’s favorite dessert on the Martini’s menu. It’s a Key Lime Cheesecake with Raspberry Coulis. The sweetness and the tequila paired nicely. The cheesecake is decadent for sure so most of mine made it’s way home… I was prepping for a race after all. (Still have to get those details up!)
These were my lovely dinner dates. We had a blast. If you are interested in Martinis, please check out their newly re-designed website. They do a lot of great events or they are great for a date night out!
