Thanks to The Network Niche, today’s post is sponsored by Fleming’s Steak House & Wine Bar.

Moving to Florida has really allowed me to experience some cool new things. Tonight was another fun night where my husband and I enjoyed learning and tasting something new. 

A few months back, on my big birthday 40th cruise with friends, we actually went on a Tequila tour. We learned how it was made, where it was made and the difference between top, middle and bottom shelf. What’s so funny is that I turned 40 and didn’t know what top shelf was!

I think I said that the rest of the trip, “I want TOP shelf!”

When I got the opportunity to attend the Fleming’s Prime Steakhouse Cinco De Mayo celebration with the chance to taste a $100 Margarita made with ultra-premium tequila from Tequila Herradura … I was all in.

I already thought I was a tequila expert because of my previous training, so this would be an opportunity for me to flex my new skills! 

What I Learned Tonight About Tequila Herradura

May 4-6, you can taste this tequila in a one-of-a-kind $100 Margarita at Fleming’s Prime Steakhouse. This is an ultra-premium 100% agave tequila aged for 49 months. Tequila Herradura is an international award winning tequila and the worlds’ first-ever extra-añejo tequila expression, introduced by Casa Herradura in 1995.

It’s describes as complex balance of the finest cooked agave, married with notes of  rich vanilla and dried fruit.

Getting tequila to perfection takes time and attention. Since 1870, Casa Herradura has been hand harvesting using only the most mature blue agave and artisanal methods, such as slow cooking the agave in traditional clay oven and using natural fermentation. 

How Can You Try It? 

Flemings wanted to elevate your Cinco de Mayo experience, so by partnering with Baccarat and Tequila Herradura they’ve created a memorable margarita experience May 4th – May 6th.

My husband and I enjoyed ourselves tonight. We experienced a new drink and I found out I have more to learn about Tequila. It was fun to celebrate Cinco de Mayo a little early as well.
