Hello Friends! I wanted to tell you about this fantastic exhibit that is showing now through November 29th in Austin, Texas at the Emma S. Barrientos Mexican American Cultural Center. On Saturday, September 13th guests gathered at the Mexican American Cultural Center to celebrate photographer Joel Salcido’s exhibit, Aliento A Tequila. Joel Salcido enjoys photographing our beautiful Texas and you can find his work in Texas Monthly.
Also, Tequila Don Julio Master Distiller and inspiration behind the photography series, Enrique de Colsa, was in attendance for the event to greet everyone and accept an image that Salcido took at the Don Julio distillery, La Primavera. While taking in the exhibit, guests enjoyed authentic Mexican fare alongside Tequila Don Julio specialty cocktails made by local mixologist Javier Flores, including the Don Burro made with Tequila Don Julio Blanco, ginger cordial, fresh lime and cucumber juice and a house made apple serum.
The event came full circle as guests enjoyed the images while learning about the Tequila making process, from harvesting, cooking, to distilling the Tequila and tasting Tequila Don Julio 70, 1942 and REAL, three of the añejo and extra-añejo variants that have been aged perfectly in American White Oak Barrels until ready.
Admission is always free at the Mexican American Cultural Center for Exhibits and you can receive a temporary parking pass once requested at the main office.
Here are the recipes for the fantastic drinks served at the event containing Tequila Don Julio so you can make at home: Please Click on images if you would like to enlarge.
Do you have a favorite cocktail that you make with Tequila Don Julio? Would you rather sip on Tequila Don Julio? I really enjoyed sipping Don Julio 1942, but these specialty cocktails are definitely going to be at our next function. I always love a signature cocktail at our parties. If you are 21 years or older & follow @donjuliotequila on Instagram, they post specialty cocktails on their feed.
Thanks for coming by friends & Lots of love,
