Blue Dragon Tequila Gift Basket
A classy faux leather trunk displays Casa Dragones Tequila Joven paired with crackers, nuts, cheese spread, chocolates, and other snacks. Your recipients will never forget this high-end, opulent gift and the luxurious treats hand selected to pair specifically with this sipping tequila. That’s right; Casa Dragones Joven is made especially for sipping, and it’s recommended to be served neat in a Riedel Overture Tequila glass. If sipping tequila neat isn’t your thing, then try the “The Blue Dragon” (below), a lively summer cocktail featuring champagne too.
Casa Dragones Joven has a full body that is silky and rich, leaving long visible legs on the sipping glass. The nose is fresh with notes of sweet roasted agave, and subtle citrus and floral aromas. The palate is super smooth with soft vanilla and pear flavors, spiced undertones and a warm finish with a hint of hazelnut.
Casa Dragones’ Maestro Tequilero hand finishes each production of Casa Dragones Joven, by blending un-aged silver tequila with the optimal amount of extra aged tequila. For the final touch to this intricate and thoughtful process, the blended tequila then rests in American oak barrels for over 5 years, which creates a fabulously smooth and balanced tequila that is best sipped! Such care goes into the production of each batch, that Casa Dragones is only able to produce small batches at a time, producing no more than 500 cases each batch. This allows Casa Dragones to focus on high-quality and strict quality control for their customers’ enjoyment.
Mixologist Nick Mantzaridis of Miami restaurant, Beaker and Gray invented “The BlueDragon”, which is a superb Summer cocktail. Mix 1 1/2 oz. Casa Dragones Joven Tequila, 1/2 oz. Cointreau Noir, 1/3 oz. Ginger syrup, 1/2 oz. Malbec (try Zuccardi Finca Malbec Piedra Infinita) and 3/4 oz. Lemon juice. Top with Champagne (try Perrier-Jouët Champagne - Belle Epoque) and garnish with lemon cup, blackberry, raspberry, anise star, mint spring, and powdered sugar.
