Sample the country’s most tantalising tacos paired with equally inventive tequila-inspired cocktails – from seasoned food writer and libation enthusiast Katherine Cobbs. Tacos have been trending for years, and finally tequila is having its taco moment. While a crunchy, savoury beef taco washed down with a frozen margarita is always acceptable, today the inspired options for what can be stuffed in an edible wrapper or blended with agave spirits are infinite. Behind the bar, the burgeoning array of top-shelf tequilas and mezcals available hold their own – and even outshine – liquor mainstays like vodka, gin, and bourbon. The ubiquitous tequila shot with requisite salt and lime chaser can’t compete with the complex, nuanced flavours of the finely crafted blanco, reposado, and a?ejo tequilas and smoky mezcals that deserve sipping and savouring. The book also includes entirely new spins on the taco.
