Celebrate Cinco de Mayo

Hola Ladies!

In the spirit of Cinco de Mayo only days away, I wanted to share with you this mouth watering recipe that will truly taste amazing! I can’t wait, I know it sadly falls on a Tuesday, but I plan on cooking a little bit of everything. I can’t have my Cinco de Mayo without a little bit of Mexican flavor to our dinner and a little of Don Julio to cheer our spirits.  Here is what you will need, hope you enjoy!


The Ultimate Cinco de Mayo Food and Drink Pairing by Chef Enrique Olvera  

and Tequila Don Julio

This Cinco de Mayo leave your chips and shots at the door and instead take a moment to truly celebrate Mexican heritage and their rich culinary culture by taking a nod from the experts. Enrique Olvera, a world-renowned chef hailing from Mexico, has collaborated with the team at Tequila Don Julio to create a recipe pairing that will take your celebrations from average to exceptional.

Chef Olvera’s creation, a Tuna and Uni Tostada, combines fresh seafood and traditional Mexican flavors such as cilantro and smoked tomato for a dish that is both unique but also full of rich, delicious flavor.

Of course, no celebration is complete without a signature cocktail, and the Papíto Royale is the perfect addition with Mexico’s original luxury craft tequila, Tequila Don Julio. This aperitif style cocktail with a top off of Champagne is perfectly balanced to complement the seafood flavors in the dish.

From Mexico to your table, these recipes will have guests singing your praise all night.
