Nothing makes summers a pleasure than having a special twist on margaritas. That would mean having a Pink Cadillac. Santiago's version of the cadillac combines the tequila of your choice, gran marnier and pama with a splach of Rosa's lime. A smooth variation on a classic, with a hint of pomegrante.

The best tequilas are made from 100% blue agave and are not married with other spirits. Only blue agave grown in Jalisco and in certain parts of Nayarit, Michoacan, Guanajuato and Tamaulipas can be used to produce tequila. It takes 8-to-10 years for an agave plant to mature, so the greater part of manufacturing tequila is plantation work: planting, fertilizing, pruning and harvesting.
What most consumers don't know is that most "tequilas" are made with about 51% Blue Agave tequila mixed with about 49% alcohol derived from cane sugar distillation. Additionally, these tequilas have artificial caramel coloring added to give them a gold color.
Not so with Sammy Hagar's Cabo Wabo Tequilla. It is not mixed, just pure 100% pure blue agave, that you can definitely tell a difference in taste and smoothness. Come join us in greeting the Monsoons with a Waborita while you sit and sip as the rains fall down.
