Flavors Complementing Flavors

Did you ever have a drink that mixed so well with the food you were eating you began to wonder if the chef had the drink in mind when constructing the recipe? Sometimes you just find a flavor that compliments other flavors so well that they all seem to be in collusion to make your meal a real memory.

img0000A margarita is one of those drinks; a drink that seamlessly blends into any meal you eat at Paco’s Mexican Restaurant.

Everyone knows that a classic margarita contains three things: tequila, triple sec, and lime juice. Where it becomes a little murky is how much of each goes into the mixture.

While people who wish to drink margaritas alone may prefer a heavy tequila version, holding back on the spirit is the best way to go if you’re drinking the cocktail with food.

This means using the exact same amount of tequila, triple sec and lime juice. Not forgetting the traditional salt on the glass, of course. This creates a less overpowering drink that allows the spices and flavors from Paco’s food to really shine.

Paco’s ensures that the tequila used in his margaritas is of the highest quality. This requires a 100% agave label on the bottle. The restaurant also opts for triple sec over Cointreau as the latter is much stronger.

Last but not least, limes need to be refreshing, rather than supremely sour. Shake it all together with ice and you have yourself a drink that you can keep ordering without a second’s thought.

Paco’s Mexican Restaurant is located at 200 E. Foothill Blvd, in Arcadia. For more information, call (626) 357-7270 or visit http://www.pacosmexicanrestaurant.com.
