June 28th, 2011 · 1 Comment

If you missed the Cinco de Mayo tequila-dinner pairing at COA Mexican Eatery & Tequileria, 7919 Roosevelt Way N.E., there are more chances coming up to taste some of the unique tequilas available at the new Maple Leaf restaurant.

At 6:30 p.m. July 7, Eric Lorenz with Lorenz Agave Spirits will share his knowledge about the history of tequila while you taste his Aha Toro Blanco, Reposado, Añejo and Amigo Reposado. Cost is $40, and will include the Lorenz tequila tastings and bocaditos from COA. From the COA website: 

This will be an awesome experience to learn the history of Tequila & how far it’s gone. This tasting will be like stepping into the past and seeing what Tequila was intended to be.

The month’s second tasting begins at 6:30 p.m. July 30, with “Tequila Evangelist” Clayton J. Szech inviting just 16 people to an intimate tasting of his private collection. Cost is $55, and includes bocaditos from the COA kitchen. From COA:

This tasting will be a VIP experience. … These tequilas you will not find in your local liquor store. You will be able to experience tequila like you never have before as Clayton will explain the history & process the tequila went through before arriving at your lips. The notes, the flavor, the color it will all make sense after this event.

Tickets to both tastings can be purchased through the COA website.
