Tequila Recipes: Ultra-Premium Craft Tequila Cocktails Revive the Spirit


Watch this episode on

Today, Foodable unveils our brand new bar set with our Master Mixologist, Oscar Castaneda. For such a momentous occasion, what else could we christen the set with than Tequila! Oscar introduces us to Embajador Tequila in 3 ways. Ever had sipping tequila? Well my culinarians, you’ll want to try this one.

Embajador Tequila produces premium 100% Blue Agave tequilas, offering incredible value to patrons.


For his first beverage, Oscar pairs the Platinum tequila with fresh mixes to match the quality of the spirit. Using a strong beet puree, homemade cilantro syrup, and a homemade jalapeno syrup (both using coconut sugar), he balances the tequila for a sweet and savory taste. Then in true Tequila form, he adds a lemon-lime sweet and sour mix giving a beautiful layered effect.

And don’t forget about the details. The drink is topped with local key lime wheels and bruleed beet using more coconut sugar.  


Oscar also makes a beautiful Sage Sour using the Embajador Premium spirit. Using egg whites and sage syrup, the drink gives a velvety mouthfeel.

What you’ll really want to take a look at is Oscar’s final drink, or deconstructed drink, using Embajador’s Supreme tequila. Oscar outlines the importance of properly chilling your spirits before sipping. Temperature is paramount. Then, using berries, herbs, ajillo and chipotle pepper-infused chocolates, and chocolate bitters, Oscar creates an exquisite taste experience that will leave you questioning why you ever shot Tequila back in the first place.
