fall, two ways
Everyone’s favorite fleeting season is upon us and we’re diving deep into the joys of fall flavors. This month, we're spotlighting a hearty grain salad AND a flavorful Inspiro Tequila cocktail, both crafted from locally sourced, seasonal ingredients found at our favorite Green City Farmers’ Market. It’s no surprise that “seasonal” and “local” are two of our all-time favorite words, and just as we prefer our food to be fresh and local, when we enjoy a cocktail we also prioritize simplicity and purity.
Our most unforgettable dishes consistently begin with top-notch ingredients, and an unforgettable cocktail always starts with a high-quality, clean spirit. Fortunately, we have the ideal tequila for your new favorite fall drink – Inspiro Luna Blanco. This tequila is meticulously crafted exclusively from the finest 100% Blue Weber Agave, then carefully aged in American oak barrels for a lunar quarter, resulting in a uniquely smooth tequila that not only enhances your cocktail but is also delightful when savored on its own. As an added bonus, it hails from right here in Chicago and is crafted and owned by women.
So, without further delay, discover two recipes we can't get enough of this season.
This simple cocktail calls for very little ingredients - make sure they are all high quality and flavorful. Pure apple cider, ideally from your local market, is key.
