The 1st Annual Tequila & Salsa Party

Posted on 1/28/2007 to Eats and Drinks

Last night, Julie and I hosted the 1st Annual Tequila & Salsa Party. We came up with the concept for this party on New Year's Eve, when we were discussing homemade salsas and drinking Patron with some like-minded friends. The idea is simple, really...everyone is encouraged to bring their own homemade salsa or bring a jar of their favorite salsa, and bring tequila for sipping and/or mixing. Including ourselves, we had 9 people in attendance, and it seems like everyone had a great time. Here's what we had at the party:


  • 1800 Silver
  • Sol Dios Platinum
  • Milagro Reposado
  • Patron Anejo
  • Sauza Blanco
  • Tres Generaciones Anejo
  • Jose Cuervo Classico


  • Chunky Tomato Salsa (mild)
  • Chipotle Salsa (medium)
  • Mango Salsa
  • Roasted Tomatillo Salsa (medium-hot)
  • Roasted Tomato and Chipotle Salsa (medium)
  • Roasted Tomato, Poblano, Garlic, and Lime Salsa (medium)
  • Roasted Tomato and Poblano Salsa (medium-hot)


  • Beef Tacos
  • Brisket Tacos
  • Sour Cream Chicken Enchiladas
  • Tortilla Soup
  • Mexican Corn Dip
  • Sopapilla Cheesecake
  • Guacamole

The salsas were excellent, as was the tequila, food, and the company. We will definitely be doing this one again.
