ALL ACCESS - How to Make Your Perfect Margarita

PR:
What makes a perfect margarita? The answer may be as complex or as varied as the genesis of this very popular drink - the margarita is ranked as the world’s third most popular cocktail and is considered to be the staple summer drink all over the globe. A perfect margarita should be refreshing and tasty without being overly sugary or strong.

Though a perfect margarita may be all about personal preferences, there are basic rules on making your margarita the best tasting one. It is all about using the best ingredients: the finest 100% blue agave tequila, the best orange liqueur, the freshest limes and the cleanest salts. This is why the world’s finest tequila and best orange liqueur companies have come together to give you: YOUR PERFECT MARGARITA


Casa Noble tequila and Cointreau are the two ingredients that most mixologists and bartenders prefer when making their signature margaritas. Casa Noble, produced since the 1700’s, is one of only three organic tequila manufactured worldwide.  Over 3,000 acres of blue agave grown on the Casa Noble estate are harvested, cooked in stone ovens, fermented, then distilled three times.  The tequila is then stored in silver oak barrels from 364 days and up to five years, to create an elegant tasting tequila. Next, Cointreau, categorized orange liqueur categorized as a triple sec, is best to use to produce the sweet light and tangy flavour in the cocktail. Uniquely, Cointreau is more than a liqueur with its orange fragrance revealing the true soul of a delicious margarita while marrying the taste of Parisian art de vivre!

ABOUT CASA NOBLE TEQUILA

 

HISTORY

The Casa Noble tradition starts from a historic 1700s hacienda surrounded by Blue Agava. The ways and customs of a country's population, regardless of its geographic location, have a strong relation to their food and drinks. A perfect example of all of this can be found in one word: Tequila. Tequila is one of Mexico's most significant contributions to the world. This beverage means so much to its culture and values – tradition, perfection, pureness, togetherness, sharing - these same elements were the building blocks in the late 1800s from which Casa Noble began its own quest to produce and offer tequila to the world. 

Casa Noble's roots can be traced as far back as the mid-1700s, as a hacienda surrounded by a vast land where only one thing was to be found: Blue Agave (Tequiiana Weber), tequila's one and only source. This particular hacienda became one of the most developed facilities of the region; its lands holding close to 1 million agave plants. The whole region recorded a 6 million total. At the turn of the century, this hacienda had a daily production capacity of ten 66-liter barrels.

By the early 1900s, the beverage known as "vino mezcal" or "vino tequila" began growing in popularity and acceptance as a straight drink, unfiltered and undiluted. Tequila was kept in wood barrels. After fermentation they were carried by mules directly to the cantinas in Mexico City and nearby Guadalajara. 

Today tequila is part of the celebration of life. Song- writers have paid homage to Mexico's finest export in many ballads. Passion and tequila go side by side among people's lives, celebrations and meals.

Casa Noble ultra premium tequila begins with carefully selected mature Blue Agave plants, which have met our strict requirements for water and sugar content. We employ only traditional methods and slow cook our rich agave piñas for 38 hours in stove ovens. Then, using only the core and heart of the agaves, we extract our sweet nectar. Our fermentation process is 100% natural, followed by triple distillation. The result is a tequila so pure and full of Agave flavor that it has elevated the concept of tequila to new levels around the world.

All superior tequila starts with only the best "Silver" or "Blanco" and ours is Casa Noble Crystal. We call it Crystal because we believe it is superior to all silver tequilas.

About Cointreau:

Cointreau was created nearly 165 years ago in Angers, deep in the heart of the Loire Valley, but has always retained a profoundly Parisian and chic soul. Its iconic amber bottle presents the perfect balance between sweet and bitter oranges, a subtle taste uncovering incredible strength of character. Cointreau combined with fresh lemon or lime, is the base for Cointreau Fizz and a whole host of classic cocktails like the Margarita, the Cosmopolitan, the White Lady, or the Sidecar.



 

Cointreau is a brand of triple sec (an orange-flavoured liqueur) produced in Saint-Barthélemy-d'Anjou, France. It is drunk as an aperitif and digestif, and is a component of several well-known cocktails. It was originally called "Curaçao Blanco Triple Sec".

 

Cointreau Distillery was set up in 1849 by Adolphe Cointreau, a confectioner, and his brother Edouard-Jean Cointreau. Their first success was with the cherry liqueur guignolet, but they found success when they blended sweet and bitter orange peels and pure alcohol from sugar beets. The first bottles of Cointreau were sold in 1875. An estimated 13 million bottles are sold each year, in more than 150 countries.

Last July 30, Cointreau and Casa Noble joined forces to launch Your Perfect Margarita at Todd English Food Hall. With only the best tequila and the best orange liqueur, it sure was the most perfect margarita anyone could have




The perfect margarita consists of three basic ingredients, Casa Noble Tequila, Cointreau Orange Liqueur and fresh lime juice. It was overflowing with the most perfect margarita, I must have had four or five of these!

Lee Watson also demonstrated how he makes his Perfect 10 Margarita. 

I had a great time that night! Clearly, the best nights are those partnered with Casa Noble Tequila and Countreau!
