Tequila Old Fashioned Recipe via Garden & Gun

February 13th, 2019 No comments
Even in the cocktail-forward South, tequila sometimes gets an unfair rep as the shot of choice for college kids, or something to hide beneath a margarita mix. But a fine tequila, such as Jalisco, Mexico’s Patrón Añejo, is aged in white oak barrels for twelve to fifteen months, and is a smooth, nuanced sipper. The oak imparts a warmth and depth reminiscent of bourbon. Just in time for the Mexican holiday Día de Muertos (Day of the Dead), swap in aged tequila for bourbon in a twist on an Old Fashioned.

Favorite Christmas Gift – Mukka Pot

This Moka pot makes cafe latte in one pot. No need to heat or steam milk separately.

This is a great upgrade from my standard Italian Moka pot.

Trip to the first Starbucks in Italy. Via Cordusio in Milan [Video] (3:20)

We just happened to arrive in Milan on the day that Starbucks opened their first store in Italy. It was all over the news and the day before there was a line down the block to enter. I stopped by the next day. It was busy but no wait to check out this “amusement park” of a coffee bar.

Please forgive the heavily stabilized video as the GoPro did not react well to being worn while walking.

More photos and panoramas coming soon!
