The Best Food Pairings for Tequila
Tequila is one of the most versatile drinks out there, one that you can use to make any number of cocktails no matter what you have sitting in your kitchen. However, when you’re sitting back and sipping your drink, it can sometimes be hard to determine what best to pair it with.
What are some of the best food pairings for tequila? If you’re planning on trying our new double-barrel reposado with your next meal, we have a few suggestions on what would pair perfectly with it.
What off the menu are you going to want to try alongside this carefully crafted tequila? Read on, and we’ll walk you through some must-try options.
Tacos & Tequila
It’s a combination as old as time but one that’s popular and enduring for a reason.
There’s nothing better to wash down the taste of a delicious taco with than rich tequila, and nothing better to handle that tequila kick than a quick bite of your favorite Mexican staple.
Pulling from our own menu, we’d have to say the Angus Carne Asada tacos are probably the best bet to pair with your tequila order. Featuring cactus-avocado salsa and fried potatoes, this menu highlight perfectly compliments the tasting journey you’ll have started with a glass of reposado.
If the carne asada tacos aren’t for you, you might consider one of the more adventurous options on the menu: the duck confit tacos, a rather exotic dish with french origins.
This carefully cooked duck taco is prepared overnight in a stunning array of salt and spices, making it the perfect pairing with a strong drink.
Last but not least, there’s the chile-citrus carnitas, slow-roasted and prepared with a healthy dose of red onion and cilantro, which tastes excellent alongside any of our tequila-based cocktails.
You can’t go wrong with any taco on our menu, but these three are sure to make your experience one to remember.
Perfect Enchilada Pairings
What else on the menu might make the perfect pairing with your tequila order?
We’d have to point to the pork chile Verde enchiladas, one of our most popular items. Topped with cheese and more chile Verde, these enchiladas are a fan favorite and go down great with the specific flavor profile of our tequila offerings.
Of course, there’s also the grilled Angus carne asada enchilada, which, much like our tacos, provides the perfect compliment when sitting down for a tequila-tinged meal.
We smother these enchiladas in signature Red Chile Sauce and top it all off with lettuce, avocado, crema, and more.
Either of these enchiladas will pair great with tequila and is sure to keep you coming back for more.
