One major perk of writing a food blog is being contacted by lovely people who represent lovely products, like tequila. Piedra Azul Blanco Tequila, to be specific. It's named after turquoise (la Piedra Azul), which I love, and made from 100% Blue Agave Weber...
I had planned to cook up a few things with this tequila, but time got away from me (my baby has officially, stopped, sleeping) so instead I started drinking straight from the bottle. In the name of research!! I love tequila and typically drink it straight up and ice cold (with some fresh limes). What's important to me is a smooth finish - which this had for a reasonably priced alcohol. But, I figured not everyone enjoys tequila straight, so I also made a delicious Blood Orange Margarita using Madhava Agave Nectar for sweetness, another product I love.
Hey everyone, I love products hint hint!!
I hope you enjoy your weekends and if you celebrate Cinco de Mayo, pick up a bottle of Piedra Azul and don't forget to party responsibly. I am a commercial.
