A couple of weeks ago we were invited to an exclusive preview of Camarena Tequila, an historic Mexican, family-grown, organic product breaking into the US market (currently only available in Florida and a couple of other states.

Then after gawking over what was in front of us, the Camarena rep gave us a thorough overview of the company’s history as well as current state. She then explained about the four cocktails we would eventually make…and our mouths were watering (at least mine was).
