Tanteo Jalapeño Tequila and Food Pairings

While the Tanteo Jalapeño Margarita is great on its own, It is even better, and better for you, to have your cocktail with a bite to eat. Pairing Tanteo with food is pretty easy, as most everything can be better spicy. Below are some of my favorite ways to pair your nosh with Tanteo Jalapeño.

Fish Tacos with a Tanteo Jalapeño margarita

A classic spicy cocktail with a Baja Style Fish Taco - a match made in heaven. The citrus of the margarita complements the crispy fish, and the one-handed tacos allow you to use your other hand to hold the cocktail. If you are not comfortable making this on your own, try some of the best fish tacos (and Tanteo Jalapeño Margaritas) around at our friends Playa Betty on Manhattan's Upper West Side.

California roll with a Pepino Diablo Margarita

A simple takeout sushi roll (I doubt many of you are actually making your own California roll),  this combination is attainable at a lot of our top Japanese accounts like Williamsburg Brooklyn’s Fushimi. Crisp cool cucumber pairs great with a bit of spice, and the clean flavors of the cocktail pair well with the simple roll. Start here with a California roll and then start getting a bit more adventurous  - lots of great combinations to go here.

Feta Stuffed Falafel with Spicy Sandia Margarita

Again, 9 out of 10 times I am ordering-in Falafel, and by serving with this crowd pleasing cocktail, you can really kick it up a notch. I Like a lot of feta with my falafel, and that combination is fantastic with the Watermelon in the margarita. At our office, we often order from the Kobob Shack in Williamsburg, but find your favorite local spot to enjoy this great pairing.

Citrus Shrimp Ceviche with Tanteo Jalapeno on the rocks

If you do want to actually cook something - quickly whip up in the kitchen this Citrus Shrimp Ceviche, and keep the drink simple. The strong citrus of the ceviche helps balance out the strength of the tequila. This meaty satisfying appetizer needs some heat to complement it - and there is no better choice than some Tanteo Jalapeño Tequila.

Para La Buena Vida,
