1. Calabaza Rellena
Grilled Calabaza Squash, Sautéed Pico & Jocoque

Paired with. El Baston del Rey Silver
Also known as “blanco,” our Silver tequila offers a sweet taste reminiscent of agave nectar straight from the bottle. We don’t age this fresh and light-tasting tequila at all — it goes straight from our farm, to the bottle, to your table. This tequila is perfect for anyone looking for a light and cool flavor, and goes great in a wide variety of cocktails.

 2. Torta Ahogada De Carnitas
Pork Carnitas, Lime Pickled Onions, Thick Tomato Sauce on a toasted Bolillo bread 

Paired with. El Baston del Rey Reposado
If you love tequila but the full-bodied flavor of Añejos are not for you, Reposado may be your tequila of choice. This tasty and refreshing spirit is smooth sipped straight and will also make the best margarita you’ve ever tasted. Reposado (or “rested”) tequilas typically age for between two months and one year significantly shorter than Añejo tequilas, but longer than Silvers, creating a refreshing middle-ground flavor.
3. Frijoles Charros
Asada Steak, Bacon, Chorizo, Charro Beans, Rise, Radish, Cilantro, Grilled Scallions, Avocado

Paired with. El Baston del Rey Añejo
In Spanish, “añejo” means “aged” or “old.” To be classified as Añejo, a tequila must age for between 18 and 24 months. This type of tequila is a middle ground of flavor between Reposado tequilas, aged for under a year, and Extra Añejo tequilas, typically aged for between one and three years.

4. Churros 
Home Made Crispy Churros, Horchata Ice cream with Chocolate-Tequila Syrup

Paired with. El Baston del Rey Extra Añejo
As the name suggests, Extra Añejo tequilas are tequilas aged for the longest duration of time. To be classified as Extra Añejo, a tequila must age for at least three years. We age ours for 3 .5 years because we feel that amount of time yields the best flavor.
