Cinco de Mayo Tequila Tasting

Cinco de Mayo Tequila TastingCinco de Mayo Tequila Tasting was done from Edison Food+Drink Lab in the Cigar City with Sommelier Dave & Mixologist Ryan

We conducted Cinco de Mayo Tequila Tasting Maneuvers with Sommelier Dave and Mixologist Ryan to get you ready to make delicious libations for the day.  Also for good measure we’ll make a Mint Julep for the Kentucky Derby.  Today we are doing a vertical tasting of Milagro Tequilas including Silver, Reposado, Anejo, Silver Select Barrel Reserve and Reposado Select Barrel Reserve.
