The Fairmont Hotels and Resorts has announced a new partnership at its Scottsdale location with Los Azulejos Premium Tequila. This means that at our very own Fairmont Scottsdale Princess, guests can try new cocktails featuring these wonderful spirits. Last Thursday we attended a launch event for this partnership. We were also able to try some of these delicious new drinks as well as learn a bit about Los Azulejos.
Los Azulejos has some of the most rigorous quality control standards in the industry. It is made with 100% hand selected Blue Weber agave. Los Azulejos is produced in Tequila, Jalisco, Mexico and is one of the top five distilleries in Mexico. All of the bottles are either hand blown glass or ceramic created by local artisans. All of these factors make Los Azulejos one of the most premium tequilas on the market.
In addition to fantastic bites (foie gras cotton candy, amazing ceviche, and tacos), we were treated to four wonderful cocktails from the restaurants of the Fairmont Scottsdale Princess. The cocktails created by the resort tastemakers were:
Pineapple Smoke by Kenny Hansen from Michael Mina’s Bourbon Steak– This cocktail features: Los Azulejos Reposado Tequila, Fresh Lemon Juice, Mesquite Grilled Pineapple Syrup, Angostura Bitters, Cilantro, and Grilled Pineapple for garnish.
- Guava Caipirita by John Wilhelm from Toro by Richard Sandoval- This cocktail is comprised of: Los Azulejos Silver Tequila, Fresh Lime Juice, Valvet Falernum, Guava Puree. Lime Slices, and Fresh Bruleed Guava for garnish.
- Esta Noche by Jose Garcia from The Plaza Bar– This mule inspired cocktail is made with: Los Azulejos Anejo Tequila, Fresh Lime Juice, Ruby Port, Agave Nectar, Ginger Beer, and Fresh Mint Leaves for garnish.
- Flaming Los Azulejos Coffee by Eden Williamson from La Hacienda by Richard Sandoval- This dessert cocktail features: Los Azulejos Reposado Tequila, 1921 Crema, Fresh Brewed Organic Coffee, Whipped Cream, and Chocolate Shavings.
If you are a tequila fan you definitely want to head over the the Fairmont Scottsdale Princess to try these cocktails. Los Azulejos is a fantastic tequila and definitely worth trying, even on its own. Have you tried these cocktails yet? Which was your favorite? Leave your comments below or use the hash tag #GeekEats!
