At Salinas, it’s no secret that we pride ourselves on making beautiful, delicious cocktails. When you want to cook something delicious, you must use the best quality of ingredients. The same can be said for making drinks, and one of the brands we depend on consistently is Casa Dragones Tequila.
Released in 2014, Casa Dragones’ Tequila Blanco is a small batch, 100% pure Blue Agave silver tequila that is “handcrafted to deliver the true essence of agave through an innovative process that focuses on purity, for a crisp, smooth taste.” Each bottle is crafted from perfumer’s glass and is individually signed, numbered and dated by hand. That attention to detail and accountability has always impressed us.
At Salinas, we use Casa Dragones’ Tequila Blanco in both our “Aphrodisia” and “Mallorca” cocktails, with a new summer cockatil in the works. The “soft and smooth hints of vanilla” work beautifully with the crème de cacao and white chocolate extracts in the ‘Aphrodisia,’ while the “pronounced flavors of citrus and melon” compliment the grapefruit and citrus notes in the ‘Mallorca” tastefully.
While we obviously love using Casa Dragones behind the bar, the boutique tequila has a number of high-profile fans: Martha Stewart, Madonna, Dr. Dre and Chef Bobby Flay all sing its praises as a high quality “sipping tequila.” Even Oprah loves the brand, listing it as one of her “Favorite Things” in a 2012 holiday special.
Feeling thirsty and can’t wait to try Casa Dragones for yourself? Pull up a seat at our bar any night of the week and our bartenders will take care of you.
