Comments : 1 Posted in : Bars and Tasting Rooms, Bars in Chapel Hill - NC, Tequila on by : The Gourmez

Bangkok Fever @ Jujube Glen Lennox, Chapel Hill My Restaurant Review $10 Once again, Jujube proves to me that their cocktail list is second to none in the Triangle. Bangkok Fever’s ingredient list is Thai-chili-infused reposado tequila, passion fruit juice, and cinnamon salt. And it’s amazing. The essential cinnamon salt livens up every sip, playing

Cilantro Jalapeno Margarita Calavera (my restaurant review) Downtown Raleigh $8 I have been dying to try the tequila cocktails at Calavera.

Lunazul Anejo Tequila

Posted in : Spirits, Tequila on by : The Gourmez

Lunazul Anejo Tequila Jalisco, Mexico   Per the bottle label, this tequila is supposed to awaken my inner wolf or some such nonsense. After a year of exuberance for George R. R.

Tres Generaciones Plata
