The fine people at Dos Lunas Tequila sent me a sample of their silver tequila, and I must say it is quite delicious. I’m waiting to try the Anejo and Reposado versions before I write too much about the tequila itself. My contact at “DLT” told me to check out some worthwhile cocktail recipes on the Dos Lunas site, which I can only describe as America: The Website. Imagine a marriage of America and Flash graphics taken way too far, coupled with shredding Guitar Hero music, all leading up to a silhouette of a wolf howling at the moon, and you can start to grasp the epic-ness of this website. If I was in charge of the website I’d keep the America theme, but make the music Ennio Morricone’s The Good, The Bad, and The Ugly, and instead of a wolf howling at the moon, I’d have an intense video of a wolf battling a grizzly bear for forest turf. Yes, that is how I would do the website. Did I mention that Dos Lunas is the Official Tequila of the Miami Dolphins? Yes, these people are for real.
Beyond the intro, the website is VERY informative, with information about how Dos Lunas is made, food recipes using tequila, screen savers, events, and some very tasty cocktail recipes. Here are two of the official recipes as well as the “Dos Mutineers” recipe I uploaded myself.
Dos Lunas Paloma: “Dos Lunas Silver, grapefruit juice, club soda, and a splash of lime juice”
Dos Melons: “Dos Lunas Silver with some pineapple juice, and melon liqueur”
Dos Mutineers: 2 oz. Dos Lunas Silver, 1/2 oz. fresh lemon juice, served on the rocks.
Stay tuned for more on this killer tequila…
