How do you drink your coffee? I drink mine every which way… And I’m saying it really depends how I’m efeeling. With cream, con leche, black, with condensed milk. Yep, it’s all good. And I don’t mind where my coffee comes from: Africa, Colombia, Folgers…(lol) I drink it all.
Looks like I’m not alone either. I can definitively say, Hispanics drink café…si! I’ve got the stats to prove it. (It’s all about the numbers…at least that’s what they told me in accounting…but I digress!)
The National Coffee Association has just released a National Coffee Drinking Trends 2013 market study. Check it. The question was: “Did you drink coffee yesterday?” Responding “yes” were the following:
The Jalapeno Margarita is a fresh new taste on an old classic - the margarita. The margarita provides a slight jalapeno infusion with a garnish of cilantro bringing up the flavor quotient. This recipe is provided by our favorite former bartender at the Ritz Carlton's DC bar.
*2 oz of Gold Tequila (Hispanic.com's bartender likes to use Herradura Reposado) Any tequila works, however silver tequilas (in his opinion) don't have as much complexities
*Juice from 1 lime (or two smaller)
*1 Pinch of Cilantro (stems are OK)
*1/2 Tablespoon (approximate) of Agave Nectar (adjust as needed for sweetness)
*2 slices of Jalapeno peppers (***de-vein and de-seed***)
*Tiny pinch of Sea Salt (Using a salt mill, use one small turn. Step is optional. If salting the rim, don't salt the margarita.)
Hispanic.com is muy excited to announce the launch of its how to "Latin Food" series with a "How To" video on how to make a Fresh Orange Caipirinha. Luca Giovannini, mixologist at the Quill bar at the Jefferson Hotel in Washington DC and a partner at Venerate Mixology demonstrates in the following video.
Venerate Mixology: For this drink we wanted to highlight cachaca, a liquor that has transcended from a hidden treasure of Brazil and Latin America to one of world renown.

You suddenly inherited 100 cases of tequila. Or more likely your local liquor store had a rockbottom discounted sale, and suddenly – bam! After a few hundred tequila shots, you’re ready to either hold a tequila garage sale, or figure out some other methods for disposing of your tequila cache.
Ok, the reality is neither of the above scenarios apply to you, but there are some other ways to use tequila, and we’re not talking drinking.
So imagine this – you’ve cut yourself, and there’s no rubbing alcohol in the house. Well just reach for some tequila. Due to its high alcohol content, tequila can be called in, in a pinch when you need to sterilize a cut…or anything else. Clearly rubbing alcohol would be a better choice, but if you don’t have any alcohol…well hit up the liquor cabinet and some good ol’ tequila to do the trick.
We had the great opportunity to talk with a "Master of Whiskey", Kristina Sutter. The Master of Whiskey is the regional Diageo spokesperson for brown spirits. Masters of Whiskey undergo extensive training to develop expert knowledge in the products of scotch, Canadian, Irish, American, and other whiskies.
