Sashimi of Kampachi with Kumquats
Executive Chef Micheal Rotondo of the Ritz-Carlton San Francisco’s Parallel 37 restaurant, is known for crafting special dishes with hyper-seasonal ingredients found only in the San Francisco Bay area, and the Sashimi of Kampachi with Kumquats dish is no different. Kampachi is a local yellowfish, whose light, nutty flavor is enhanced by the tart sweetness of kumquats and balanced by the crisp flavor of Tequila Casa Dragones Joven.
Wild Fruit Soup with Rose Infused Macaroon
Top Chef Mexico contestant and renowned Mexican pastry Chef Irving Quiroz recreates the same delicate dessert that won him top spot on the episode in which it was featured. This time, Chef Quiroz pairs the dessert with Casa Dragones Joven, assembling an olive oil biscuit with piloncillo (a Mexican brown sugar) in a fruit purée created from locally sourced raspberries, strawberries and red wine, and finished with a rose-infused macaroon. The rose and honey aromas of the macaroon pair perfectly with Casa Dragones’ delicate notes of pear.
Adam Baca, mixologist at La Esquina in New York City, was inspired by Tequila Casa Dragones Blanco’s citrus profile when he created his signature cocktail, Agave Organico, mixing Casa Dragones Blanco, a house made blood orange spice tincture, and lime.
The peppery notes of Tequila Casa Dragones Blanco inspired mixologist Matthew Leatherman in his creation of the La Pinata for the Gordon Bar at Sixty Soho Hotel. Leatherman combined muddled cucumber with a slow cooked habanero agave to play off the Casa Dragones Blanco’s sweet agave notes for a bright, refreshing summer cocktail.
The Red Dragon
Mixologist Nick Mantzaridis of Miami’s Beaker and Grey crafts The Red Dragon with ginger and fresh lemon juice which marries perfectly with the light citrus notes in Tequila Casa Dragones Blanco for a refreshing and light summer cocktail.
