Joining Casa Noble Founder Jose ‘Pepe’ Hermosillo, brand ambassadors and mixologists Phil Khanderish and Reza Esmali created one-of-a-kind Casa Noble cocktails for Casa Noble Tequila’s ‘Mixology Library’ Tasting Room at Hotel Monteleone on Thursday, July 20th, and “Tequila Over Easy Brunch” at New Orleans hotspot Maypop on Friday, July 21st.
At the tasting room, the cocktails were inspired by classic novels such as Rabbit Hole Sunrise, Tequila Mockingbird, Moloko Plus and Quixote Fizz. When guests entered the tasting room, they were transported to an ultra-luxe ‘Mixology Library,’ where they chose a specialty cocktail from the vintage book menus. Guests were also invited to explore the Casa Noble Tequila making experience and partake in a formal tequila tasting with Casa Noble Founder and Tequila Maestro Jose ‘Pepe’ Hermosillo. As a takeaway, guests were given Casa Noble cigars that were hand-rolled on-site.
At the ‘Tequila Over Easy’ Brunch at Maypop, the cocktail menu included the Maria’s Shrimp Cocktail and Good Morning New Orleans, along with the Silk Road Café and Resting Harmony cocktails, which were served at a dedicated ‘Coffee and Tea’ cocktail bar. Prepared by Maypop’s Executive Chef, Michael Gulotta, Casa Noble paired its signature cocktails with specialty menu items that incorporated Casa Noble Tequila’s core expressions. Known for its modern vibes and serving Southern-Asian fusion plates, Maypop offered unexpected yet unique flavor pairings.
