This past week, JT and I were kindly invited by Volk PR to attend the launch of George Clooney and Randie Gerber’s Casamigos Tequila at Del Frisco’s Grille. Located in the heart of uptown, Del Frisco’s Grille is the perfect mix of a trendy atmosphere and amazing food. The restaurant not only features two bars (an upstairs and downstairs), but everything inside from the décor to outside patio is modern and stylish. As you walk upstairs you come to notice that the outside patio overlooks the uptown area with an amazing scenery and great music. Not to mention that their staff is well put together and the service deserves a gold star rating.
As we made our way to our seat, we were recommended to try their assortment of flatbread options. Our decision to taste the roasted tomato flatbread, was worth it! It was covered in fresh tomatoes, basil and mozzarella; the cheese just melted in your mouth and it came out warm and super fresh.
During the event we were asked to try a Blanco and Reposado shot of Casamigos Tequila. The result – “Speechless and Wow!” The use of the bagasse from their agave, creates a deep, rich flavor that falls smoothly in your mouth with absolutely no burn. Slowed cooked in stone ovens for over 72 hours, their agave sets them apart from other tequilas that are cooked on average for only 7 hours. Also, not to mention that their “master distiller uses a proprietary yeast blend to ensure the most refined tequila, while other tequilas use commercial yeast.” What was interesting to know was that this tequila started with just three friends that had the strong love of a good tasting tequila. Their mission was to create a tequila that tasted so superb that it didn’t need salt or a lime; it was smooth enough to just drink on its own.
Check out this video clip that features one of their reps, Mckenzie talking about what Casamigos is all about. Thanks Mckenzie!
Overall, JT and I had a wonderful time and we would encourage anyone to come visit Del Frisco’s Grille and check out Casamigos Tequila!
