If you told me I am going to drink 6 tequila cocktails in one evening and still wake up the next day I would laugh at the idea and would have told you that there is no physical way this is possible. Little did I know as this week I had the pleasure of attending the annual Patron Secret Dining Society dinner in Jerusalem. I was greeted with a breathtaking view of the Western Wall and an historical atmosphere of Saint Andrew’s Scottish Church the guest enjoyed a fine dining experience by non other but one of Israel’s renowned chefs Meir Adoni. The exquisite 5 course meal was accompanied by a different cocktail made by award winning mixologist Tal Gantz who created each cocktail to match in perfect harmony of flavors to the dish served with it.
As someone who would order mint tea with a slice of lemon and a squeeze of honey in a bar I was amazed by the smoothness and easiness of this tequila, with every sip I was less and less concerned about tomorrow’s hangover and more and more enjoying the mix of flavors I got to experience.
Patron is made from natural ingredients, pure agave plant to be precise it can only be found in Mexico, the bottle is made from recycled glass and all the labeling is hand made, which makes patron a very environmentally friendly product plus the company is still family owned.
Patron is the number one premium tequila in the world with offered in several different varieties: Gran Patrón Burdeos, Gran Patrón Platinum, Gran Patrón Piedra, Patrón Silver, Patrón Añejo, and Patrón Reposado. It is also available in a tequila-coffee blend known as Patrón XO Cafe, a tequila-chocolate-coffee blend known as Patrón XO Cafe Dark Cocoa, and an orange liqueur known as Patrón Citrónge. So there is something for everyone, depending on your taste in cocktails.
In conclusion of this evening, I learned that tequila is not only to be consumed in shots with lemon and salt but it could be transferred into a classy and diverse drink to be enjoyed even by light drinkers like myself.
