fiesta latina + vida extraordinaire

0 84

Tequila and food pairings–now that is something to explore. In Mexico Tequila is typically served with food as tiny shots, similar to how Russians enjoy vodka in between bites. When pairing Tequila with food you want to serve a premium tequila that is made for sipping. I recently discovered a wonderful ultra premium tequila called Anejo VIDA Tequila–a blend for the true tequila aficionado.


The finest tequilas are made from 100% blue agave
plant juices and are
best enjoyed slightly chilled and straight, offering a pure, clean
taste. For those who prefer mixed drinks instead of drinking neat, there are many tequila cocktails including the most recognized tequila drink– the margarita. VIDA has created a collection
of simple
to exotic recipes you can serve with your meals such as the Beso de la Manana, Vida Rojo, the
Green Tequilatini, Gourmet Vida, and their signature drink the East Coast
Watch for upcoming cocktail recipes.

At the same time that I discovered VIDA tequila, I also found this GREAT new
cookbook called Fiesta Latina. I want to make every dish in this book! 

Armed with VIDA in one hand, and Fiesta Latina in the other, you
are sure to create a Seduction Meal for your significant other that will always be remembered. VIDA offers three distinct premium blends that will perfectly complement the fabulous recipes you will find in Fiesta Latina.


Three VIDA Premium Blends and Suggested Recipes

VIDA Anejo (Extra-Aged) – Rich & Clean this is the finest of the three
styles. Vida’s Anejo Tequila is meant to be sipped. This will go well with the Lobster Chipotle Crab Cakes, or the Sirloin Steak Tiradito with Traditional Chimichurri, or one of my all time favorite dishes (not in the cookbook) but served at Mi Cocina in NYC: Chile en nogada, a poblano chili
stuffed with a pork picadillo flavored with raisins, lemon and almonds sitting on top of a walnut cream sauce and sprinkled with pomegranate seeds. What I wouldn’t do to get my hands on that recipe…

VIDA Reposado (Aged) – Sweet & Smoky this pairs well with pork and chicken dishes such as Roasted Chicken and Saffron Lobster Mashed Potatoes, or Roasted Duck Ropa Vieja Quesadillas with Spicy Guacamole, or to compliment the sweetness of the Sweet Corn Arepas Topped with Dulce de Leche Ice Cream.

VIDA Blanco (Silver) – Pure & Smooth Blanco tequila goes best with Seafood and Citrus based foods such as Fiesta Latina’s Lobster Mango Ginger and Lemongrass Ceviche or Crispy East Coast Oysters with Sweet Fufu and Saffron Aioli or Marinated Lobster Tail and Scallop Pinchos.
