With the last month of summer upon us, it is all about family and friends. So, I reached out to my friends from the podcast Team Tequila Talks to help me stock a more respectable tequila collection. Lets just say, we had a blast! They also taught me how to mix easy and delicious drinks perfect for the heat. I made their “Not Your Mother’s Paloma” for my family this last weekend and it was a huge hit! Incredible conversation and education will leave you wanting to run right out to the liquor store.
