On this week's show, Zarela & Aarón welcome Aarón's close compadre, Manny Hinojosa. Manny is a global ambassador for Tequila Cazadores, and he has a passion and deep knowledge of both tequila production and mixology. He kicks off the show by sharing his story of coming to the United States and finding his way into the bartending scene. Along the way he shares insights on cocktail competitions, the history of the earliest tequila producers, and firsthand experience of how the growing conditions of agave affects the flavor and aroma of finished tequilas.
Plus, there are very spirited discussions of a number of cocktails including the Margarita, Cuba Libre, Paloma, Bandera & Vampiro, and Zarela and Aarón share their histories of cooking with tequila.
