Dishes You Didn’t Know You Could Pair with Tequila
We have always associated tequila with parties and nights we can’t remember but a high quality tequila made with 100% Blue Weber Agave deserves to be treated better! Most of us have been used to shooting tequila paired with a slice of lemon and a dash of salt. We just found out that Tequila runs great with a whole variety of dishes as well. Spice up your next socially distant stay at home dinner and try out these food pairings with your favourite spirit.
Patron Silver with Ceviche de Camarones and Lemon Pesto Salad
As the youngest one out of the tequila selections, Patron Silver has the brightest profile. It is best enjoyed neat in a shot glass to be sipped slowly, a cold light aperitif of Ceviche de Camarrones balances out that hit. The spirit is great when paired with food made with citrusy flavors and is also an amazing match for chilled seafood dishes. Once this dish gets you and your family’s appetite going, you’re ready for the entree! You can also enjoy the spirit paired with a Lemon Pesto Salad topped with fresh pine nuts and pomelo bits.
Patron Reposado with Smoked Beef Brisket and Grilled Shiitake Mushrooms
We know that the spirit packs a punch and we wouldn’t want anyone dozing off before the mains right? The unique smokiness that the tequila picks up from being aged in oak barrels, is best enjoyed with grilled meats. A soft, delightful and hearty Smoked Beef Brisket dish with a side of pickled radish makes this a combo to remember. If someone who is vegan or vegetarian is joining you, Grilled Shiitake Mushrooms with herbed sea salt in olive oil goes well with the Patron Reposado. Get ready for a tequila night you will remember for sure.
Patron Anejo with Mousse Au Chocolat
If you are a fan of things created in batches with much more love and attention, you’ll surely enjoy the Patron Anejo. The spirit is aged for more than a year in small batches. Bring out your mom’s snifter glasses and enjoy the full experience. The taste notes of chocolate complement this spirit well. Closing that dinner with a serving of Mousse Au Chocolat and Patron Anejo seals the deal.
Food pairings are not only done with wine. Tequila is a versatile spirit that can be enjoyed by many!
