To say I’ve been busy is an understatement. Seriously, my life has been go, go, go these past several months.
First, my personal life. I got married! I couldn’t have just one wedding either. I had two, and they were two weeks apart!
Second, my professional life. I got a new job back in late February. If you looked at my last post, it coincides with around the time I got it.
I’m now in sales. To be exact, I work in the alcohol beverage industry representing the world’s most well-known brands. I miss writing regularly, so decided I’ll put my writing to use in my current role. Every Friday, starting last week, I send out a Food Pairing Friday Tip email to my accounts, obviously highlighting some of our products.
I know selling is poison to a blog (a good blog, anyways). My intent with these emails are not to sell, but rather to educate and offer my accounts even more value. And that’s why I think it’ll work here. I thought readers would enjoy these weekly tips, too, and hey, my blog will be updated regularly.
If you’ve been following my blog or have scanned my other posts, you’ll know that I don’t do product reviews. I don’t plan on taking that route. This blog is about sharing what I know and what I’m learning. These weekly tips offer that, with the caveat that there will be a product highlighted. I will always disclose whether I represent a product shown here.
Thank you for reading this far. Without further ado, here’s the first tip sent out last week!
Food Pairing Tip
As blanco tequilas are bottled right after distillation, there’s no influence from ageing in barrels; that’s why the colour is clear and you get the true flavours of the agave plant from which it’s made. Try sipping Don Julio Blanco with your next serving of ceviche, chips and salsa, or a salad with a light vinaigrette dressing. The hints of citrus and the light, sweet agave flavour pair very well with food high in acidity or spicy seafood. You’ll find that it’s a great introduction and isn’t overwhelming.
Always good in a mixed drink, but best on the rocks or neat.
