With the deliciously meteoric rise of the Food Truck in cities from New York all the way to Los Angeles, late-night partiers and lunchtime culinary adventurers are enjoying a new and rapidly evolving food culture at their fingertips. Taco trucks are a particularly delectable feature of the food truck scene, with creative spins on the menu design giving new life to the old standard.
Espolón Tequila has long recognized that late into the night, after the bar hopping has ended, the call of the taco truck is undeniable. Those in the know flock to the best taco trucks across the country to satisfy their cravings and indulge in real Mexican street food.
Inspired by the nightly ritual of "Drinks First, Tacos Later," Espolón Tequila asked three top mixologists from New York, Los Angeles and San Francisco to craft what could be the country's first Taco Truck Cocktail Pairing – just in time for Cinco de Mayo.
Espolón Tequila and taco trucks have cult-like followings, so teaming up in honor of Cinco de Mayo can only be described as a match made in taco heaven.
Check out a handful of cocktail and taco recipes from Espolón Tequila, so you can easily recreate these pairings for your own Cinco de Mayo celebrations. Sombreros not included!
