Your favorite 6.5 OZ bottle of beer

Place ice in glass. Add in tequila and fill with lemonade. Tip beer bottle inside the glass.

Casa Noble Tequila

Working at Frachelli has it’s perks, and getting to try samples of booze is certainly one of the better ones. We received three types of tequila from Casa Noble, a triple-distilled premium tequila maker – all of which we found enjoyable. Here are some notes on the three varieties so you can decide which is most up your alley:

Casa Noble CRYSTAL Tequila
Crystal clear in color with hues of straw and silver . A Well-balanced, smooth tequila with aromas and flavors of raw and buttery sweet cooked agave, mango, and a hint of citrus for a long finish. $39.95 for a 750 ml bottle.

Casa Noble REPOSADO Tequila
Light amber in color with hues of bright copper. A smooth, sensuous and full-bodied, this tequila is matured in French white oak barrels for exactly 364 days. $49.95 for a 750 ml bottle.

Casa Noble AÑEJO Tequila
The color of this tequila has a deep amber core with golden accents. A robust and complex tequila with intricate aromas of dried fruits, spice, and toasted oak, complemented with butterscotch, vanilla and cooked agave flavors. Aged in French White Oak Barrels for two years. $59.95 for a 750 ml bottle.

Woodford Reserve Bourbon

I never considered myself much of a bourbon drinker, but after trying some Woodford Reserve – I may be changing that. During LBJ’s time in the White House, Congress passed a resolution declaring bourbon “a distinct product of the United States.” Not only does Woodford Reserve meet all the strict criteria required to be called a bourbon, but they also craft their product in small batches ensuring quality. I was fortunate enough to attend a Woodford Reserve tasting event where I had their Kentucky Straight Bourbon Whiskey infused with vanilla, in an old fashioned, and on the rocks. All were quite tasty, but straight up on the rocks was my favorite. When something tastes good, don’t mess with it!

On The “Rocks” Whiskey Stones

If you’re trying to look uber manly in front of guests, pour straight whiskey over some whiskey stones. The basic idea is – ice melts and dilutes your drink, whereas stones don’t. All you need to do is throw the whiskey stones in the freezer and when added to your booze, they’ll chill things down a bit.  Of course, it also works with Scotch and Bourbon. If you want to look manly and cool – toss the whiskey stones into a Roly Poly Whiskey Glass. Either way, you’re drink will literally be on the rocks…
