Cinco de Mayo at Home: Let us Help Make it a Fiesta

 

Shake up your holiday at home with a new margarita recipe or living room salsa dancing. Just because we are not able to celebrate with others doesn’t mean
Cinco de Mayo has to be boring. We can help supply everything you need
for a fun, fiesta on the 5th!

Margarita Making Tequilas

There are no rules when making a margarita but majority of the time margarita’s are made with silver or blanco tequila. Blanco means the tequila is un-aged and usually bottled shortly after the distillation process. They see no time in a barrel, which is why they are a clear spirit.
Above are five quality tequila’s with even better prices:
Olmeca Altos Plata 1.75L $32.99 – You can’t beat the price for a great handle of tequila
Campo Bravos 750ml $17.98 – Looking for a fantastic tequila under $20?
Patron Silver 750ml $41.98 – Always a classic!
Jose Cuervo 750ml $17.99 – Inexpensive and a great addition to your fiesta
DEP’s Maestro Dobel Diamante $29.99 – A DEP’s store pick. Limited supply, last call!

DEP’s Patron Anejo
Barrel Select
This is DEP’s first barrel select from Patron. Creamy vanilla, allspice, baked cinnamon, butterscotch, burnt cherries, and creamy agave. This smooth Anejo is a perfect “gateway” pour into the tequila world. This barrel is robust with classic barrel age notes commonly associated with bourbons. The finish is smooth and creamier than most tequilas. Enjoy it neat first.  Shop now!

Patron Smoky
A sophisticated silver tequila with a perfectly balanced, very complex smoky flavor. Begins with the highest quality Weber Blue Agave. The piñas are roasted with mesquite for about seven days in small underground stone pits at Hacienda Patrón.They’re then crushed with a tahona wheel, fermented, and distilled. Our liquor buyer, Matt, says “Everyone needs to try this, it’s phenomenal”. Shop now!

Attention all Margarita Masters!

If we were to search the internet, we would come across thousands of different version of how to make a margarita. We want to know how our DEP’s community makes them and what makes them so special. We may be isolated, but that doesn’t mean we cant continue to grow our community. A simple recipe sharing contest might be the key to perfecting your at home margarita or even help entertain you for a couple of hours. The contest begins today and the winner will be announced on May 5th. Send in your recipe ingredients to our social media pages or by email to brittany@depsfinewine.com. On Cinco de Mayo we will vote on who is the Margarita Master and they will win a fruit juicer, shaker and bag of limes.
We are very excited to see everyone’s creations, let the sharing begin!
