    Sipping Off The Cuff - Penasco Tequila Reposado

    in Wine

    The original set of Tequila Aficionado podcasts by Alex Perez kicked the whole thing off.  Until 2006, Tequila Aficionado was a forum and news aggregator.  With the launching of podcasts, Tequila Aficionado became something else altogether.  Since then, we have grown to become a creator of original content in both written and video formats.  Now, we come full circle with an audio format that fits every aficionado’s lifestyle.
    FTC Disclosure: Any samples received were delivered free of charge without promise of a positive review.  Tequila Aficionado never accepts payment for reviews or features on Sipping Off the Cuff or Open Bar.  All brands featured on Open Bar must be vetted as a previous or current Tequila Aficionado Brand of Promise Nominee.

About Food

The food revolution has changed our view of what we eat, including how we source it. Being a foodie has now become a rite of passage, especially in urban centers. The biggest change? Choice. With so many options available, going vegetarian, vegan, kosher, Paleo and gluten-free no longer puts us at a disadvantage when shopping or dining out. This isn't your grandma's kitchen, unless you want it to be: Plan old-style meals to trendy organics, whether you're craving homemade mac and cheese, brisket or locally grown sustainable broccoli rabe. Throwing a dinner party? Let Food Network stars and celebrity chefs share what works. Trying to lose weight or need ways to get kids to eat their veggies? Tune in for recipe ideas or share your own! We also talk wine, from connoisseurs in search of the perfect varietal to food pairings to those wanting the best bang for their buck.
