Celebrate Cinco de Mayo with Casa Noble Crystal Tequila + recipe
Casa Noble insures great
detail from the cultivating of the blue agave plants to the lengthy aging
process for the precise aromas and flavors of their tequila. Casa Noble is a
distillery and also grows more than 3000 acres of agave located in the hills
near the city of Tequila in Jalisco, Mexico.
The unique soil in this region produces the best blue agave. Carlos Santana,
music icon and Rock & Rock Hall of Famer, is part of the Board and also one
of the owners of Casa Noble.
Casa Noble Crystalis the “silver” or
“blanco” type. The bottle itself is a beautiful hand-blown glass decanter and
adorned with a pewter engraved label and top. Tasting notes: Tequila scent is
experienced. A smooth minty, menthol flavor is experienced with a spicy pepper
bite at the end. Rating: 4/5
El Beso Margarita won the Signature Cocktail Special
Award at the 2012 National Cocktail Competition. It has a refreshing citrus
fruitiness which is unexpected for a margarita. The cocktail is not
super-strong but still allows the tequila flavor to come through. It has the
perfect balance of sweet and sour. Rating: 4.5/5

Mojito Lamaica (Hibiscus Mojito) contains Casa Noble
Crystal, hibiscus simple syrup, mint leaves, fresh lime juice, and fresh lemon
juice. This cocktail has a beautiful purple color from the hibiscus simple
syrup. It is sweet on the front end with a tart finish. Either slightly less
tequila or more hibiscus simple syrup would make it more balanced. Rating:
