One Tequila, Two Tequila!

ONE TEQUILA, TWO TEQUILA MORE! JOE PATTERSON and ‘COCKTAILS WITH KELLIE’ FALK are inviting you to a tequila tasting and dinner from the comfort of their own home. Join WILLIAM & COMPANY & LA VELADORA’S owner and mixologist, LILY BALLANCE, as she shares her passion for agave. William & Company boasts one of the state’s most impressive Latin American spirits list, including mezcal, pisco, cachaça and even Diplomático rum from Venezuela. La Veladora serves over 80 impossible-to-find varietals of mezcal, rare small-batch tequilas and obscure agave spirits like Raicilla, Bacanora and Sotol. Lily will teach everyone about the process behind creating agave spirits, from planting to growing to distilling, and use a whole host of indigenous Mexican ingredients to showcase their medicinal benefits. To accompany these magical mixes and spirits, indulge in the culinary genius of OSCAR DIAZ. Owner of CORTEZ SEAFOOD & COCKTAIL, Oscar is a James Beard nominee, putting his experiences, travels and tastes together to bring his culture and cuisine to Raleigh – basically Southern staples with a Mexican twist (or Mexican staples with a Southern twist – depending on who’s asking!).
