Spiked Seltzer Reviews

Hard Seltzers

For years, Mikes Hard Lemonade became our favorite line of beverages. Eventually we settled on Mike’s Lite Lemonade as it was healthy. Then the flavored seltzer water trend began and we started mixing them together. But Mikes recently discontinued their Lite version along with many others as they often due with certain flavors in their

Herradura Ultra Anejo Tequila Review

Herradura Ultra Anejo

Happy National Tequila Day 2020! With the Coronavirus still cancelling some of our favorite drinking holidays this year, I thought I would pick a really nice tequila for you to go out and blow some money on. I have written about the trend of clear Anejo tequilas coming on the market. I previously reviewed Don

La Gritona Reposado Review

La Gritona Bottle

Once alcohol sales moved into grocery stores in Washington, it really did impact the diversity of spirits you could buy across different state run stores. So, when we happened to be out and come across an original Liquor Store still doing business, I had to go inside. The selection wasn’t that big of a departure

Grand Orendain Reposado Tequila Review

Gran Orendain Reposado

This tequila is another discovery that came from attending the tequila festival in Seattle. I had actually seen the less expensive variety at a local liquor store, but not until about a year or so ago did I start to see the Gran Orendain pop up at my Total Wine. The thing I like most

Passion Tea Margarita Recipe

Passion Tea Margarita

One of my favorite Starbuck’s drink is a Passion Tea Lemonade. So I was impressed when a friend of mine turned the idea into a Margarita. Since you may be stuck inside due to the Corona Virus, you might just be able to knock this out if you have some Passion Tea in the pantry.

Roca Patron Reposado Review

Roca Patron Reposado

Patron was one of the first brands that expanded the perception of tequila in America. Though one time considered the go-to top shelf tequila, recent competition has leveled the playing field. However, Patron had decided to raise the bar again with one of its news varieties of tequila. Roca Patron has been out for several

Dulce Vita Flavored Tequila Review

Dulce Vida Pineapple Tequila

I have always been a fan of sweet things, especially anything pineapple. So, I have become a fan of the pineapple jalapeno margarita. After passing by this bottle at the store several times, I finally broke down and made the purchase. The first thing I would say is that this flavored tequila is not overly

Elvelo Reposado Tequila

Elvelo Tequila Review

I always like to share discoveries I make at the Agave Fest in Seattle. This year, I am reviewing a brand I was unfamiliar with called Elvelo. Created in collaboration with Master Distiller Carlos Hernandez Ramos of La Cofradi, this tequila is made with the unique purpose of making the very best cocktails. Altamar Brands,
