Ditch the salt and lime with this Tealeaves cocktail created by a tequila master from Mexico!
Alfredo Sanchez is the Tequila Barista at Four Seasons Punta Mita in Mexico, where he often educates and enlightens guests during their stay with unique and tantalizing tequila-tasting experiences. He pushes the boundaries of innovation and enables guests to discover the complexities of each and every tequila drink – it is no surprise we have invited him to the Tealeaves family as one of our fantastic ICONS.
Alfredo uses his talents to mix traditional Mexican ingredients with tequila in unconventional ways, such as dabbling in molecular mixology. With unique ingredients, he strives to bring out tequila’s many layers, flavours, and complexities. Some of the ingredients he uses include tequila shots chased with orange and grapefruit wedges, chili powder-dusted pineapple, chunks of dark chocolate, or red and green sangrita.
Dedicated to his craft, Alfredo has assembled a wide collection of tequila: more than 200 all together. Perhaps if you pay him a visit, he will share some with you!
Can’t make it to Mexico? Don’t fret! We have reached out to our beloved ICON and are pleased to share with you his incredibly delicious “tea”quila concoction.
