Cedar Social Herradura Tequila Launch Party

cedarby Alex Gonzalez

Last Thursday, the ladies of The Cedars Social closed the restaurant down for a dinner to celebrate the launch of new cocktails featuring their new signature tequila blend. Leann Berry (bar manager and continuously named best bartender by many included CraveDFW), Monica Green (owner), and Anastacia Quinones (Rising Star Chef) traveled to Mexico to create the perfect blend. After experimenting with 240 bottles, the trifecta was able to craft the perfect double barrel reposado blend, which is now available exclusively at The Cedars Social.

The launch dinner consisted of four courses, the first of which was a plate of Enchiladas Potosinas, containing potato, cheese, onion, and Guajillo salsa. The Enchiladas were paired with a cocktail containing Herradura silver, aloe liqueur, pear and peach puree, and lime. The cocktail made for a good starter. Sweet to the point where it had a taste similar to that of white grape juice, and strong enough to set the bar for what was in store for the rest of the night. Continue reading
