Don Julio Blanco Part Two (Cocktails): Sloe Train to Mexico

Don Julio Blanco Part Two (Cocktails): Tequila Mojito

Don Julio Blanco Part One: The Taste Test

ORIGINAL — Tequila Boat


August 7, 2011 (Day 132) — Tequila Boat The Tequila Boat is something I just made up. Hell, it may be a real thing. We don’t get paid for research. In fact, we don’t even get paid. If I were to give a definition of a Tequila Boat, I would say it’s a boat wherein […]
