Tequila, how to drink and taste the Mexican distillate to the fullest

The tequila is a distilled native of Mexico , obtained by fermentation and subsequent distillation of the blue agave, originally produced in the Mexican town of Tequila and in its vicinity. And although it does not have an “easy” taste, it is very popular all over the world. However, to taste it better, particular attention must be paid to some details. Here’s what.

The first mistake that many make is to drink what is not produced using 100% agave sugar. It is an old and long process. Because plants take eight years to mature. The nucleus of the plant is then distilled. Like champagne, only the drink produced in Mexico can rightly be called tequila.

All the secrets of the Mexican distillate, from which to take to how to taste it …

“That arrived in the United Kingdom and in Europe was mixed with tequila. This means that only 51% of the sugars came from the agave plant, the other 49% came from other sources such as wheat or sugar cane, “ explains Eduardo Gomez, director of Mezcal and the Tequila Festival in London, all ‘ “Usually these tequila are of low quality. The golden tequila, much appreciated, was colored with caramel, which causes that horrible hangover the next morning “ .

Another piece of advice. When choosing which one to take, avoid those over the age of four. Andrei Talapenscu, head bartender of the Pullitzer in Amsterdam, always tells the Independent. Memorize some key terms. Like Blanco, which is that kind of tequila of 2 months or less. The reposado is between 2 and 11 months. Aneja is between one and five years old. While the Extra Anejo has a minimum of three years.

We proceed. Another wrong step, according to Andy Kerr, the co-owner of the London Discount Suit Company bar, is to drink it in one go. It should instead be treated like a whiskey or a rum. And then sipping. With small sips. Maybe with a tasting glass or a glass of wine, so as to open the best flavors.

Cocktail lovers, Gomez adds, should try the Bloody Mary with the distillate instead of vodka. And what to tease, as a side dish? “Tequila and tacos go hand in hand” , adds Josh Rooms, the bar manager of Cartel in Battersea. “The Anejo goes incredibly well with the slow-cooked beef marinated with chili, tomatoes, white onion and cooked with chorizo” .

Cafè Gourmand, the ideal cocktail after dinner

Cafè Gourmand is the new Gray Goose ritual to be proposed at the end of the meal. It is the union between the Espresso Martini cocktail and small pastries, a new and delicious alternative to the classic dessert.

Thanks to the union between the strong personality of the cocktail and the delicate flavors of the pastries, it creates the premise for a truly enjoyable after dinner. An original idea, perfect for those who can not give up the taste of coffee after dinner. But also a new way of conceiving desserts, to be tried by associating the arabica with the enveloping taste of vodka.

Cafè Gourmand: the novelty is inspired by the French ritual

In France, the Café Gourmand has always been considered the right compromise between a “challenging” dessert and the simple espresso at the end of the meal. Inspired by this epicurean tradition, the new Gray Goose Café Gourmand is able to give a touch of novelty to the ancient culinary ritual.

The secret is enclosed in the combination of the best vodka in the world and the right blend of coffee. The arabica is selected to bring out the flavor of the distillate and give life to the “perfect” Espresso Martini cocktail. The latter is in fact served with a fine selection of mini desserts that contribute to enhancing the taste.

Gray Goose combines two totally French ingredients. The soft winter wheat of Picardy and the spring water of Gensac-La-Pallue, expertly worked by François Thibault, Gray Goose’s master cellar.

The Café Gourmand will be available in bars and restaurants including the Four Seasons Hotel and the Milan Bulk and the cocktail bar at the JW Marriot in Venice.
