Tequila Pig Roast
I still remember the first time I tasted El Tesoro de Don Felipe Tequila. It was the early 1990s and the brand was still owned by Carlos Camarena Curiel, grandson of the original Don Felipe Camarena.
While it's no longer family owned, the current owners seem to be doing things the right way. It's still made by hand, crushed in a stone mill, baked in an old fashioned horno, fermented with natural yeast and distilled to proof with no addition of sugar or water. That's some serious Tequila right there, and it shows in every glass.
Sunday, we're going to mix up some Tequila drinks
and roast us up some pig.
...Summer in New Brunswick ain't so bad after all!
Now you never can be exact with a whole pig, but we can assume he'll be ready to go around about 5:30 PM. We will have our regular dinner menu available.
The pig is served family-style: $20 for a half-pound $29 for a pound and it comes with selected sides from our regular Stage Left Steak menu: one side per half pound.
We will give you a glass to toast the porcine who will not have given his life in vain.
El Tesoro Drinks!
The Frozen Drink Machine will be stocked with an icy version of Tommy's Margarita, which was created in the early 90's by Julio Bermejo at Tommy's Mexican Restaurant in San Francisco, California.
It is a bartender's secret weapon. Instead of Tequila, lime and Cointreau, Tommy's is Tequila, lime, agave syrup. It is a particularly pure iteration of a Tequila cocktail. We're going to freeze it up.
Trader Vic's El Diablo is a long drink with Tequila, Cassis and our incredible Blenheim's Ginger Ale. Our own Chris Stanley's invention The Shift Drink is Tequila, Apricot & Kalamansi Lime juice.
We will also have a few different El Tesoro available for tasting and we will have bottles for sale.
Make a reservation for Sunday here.
