Spicy red sangrita (not sangria) and tequila are a perfect sipping pair.

UPDATE (as of February 5): 4 of the original 12 seats have been spoken for.

If your only experience with tequila and other agave-based spirits was a bad one in college, or if you’ve never tried them but are curious, here’s your chance to take part in an enjoyable tasting as part of our club’s Rotary Home Cooking series.

The event is “An Agave Experience,” to be hosted by Bill and April Dowd at 6:30 p.m. Saturday,  April 8, at their Troy residence.

Reservations, priced at $35 per person, will be limited to 12 guests accepted on a first-come, first-served basis. All proceeds from the evening will go to the club treasury to support our community service efforts.

Guests will be treated to a guided tasting of several ultra-premium Mexican tequilas and mezcals, some of which usually are not available in this country, accompanied by an array of finger foods inspired by south of the border chefs but with a local twist. This definitely will NOT be the college experience you may recall.

For those of you who are not familiar with the process of turning agave plants into tequilas and mescals, Bill will provide commentary and explanations about the art and about the various products being sampled, gleaned from his numerous journalistic visits to Mexico’s Jalisco State, the center of the tequila industry.

Please contact Bill or April to save your seat.
