• Tequila Vault at Ritz-Carlton, Dallas Draws Group Events

     
    FROM THE Summer 2017 ISSUE
     

Looking for a fun group event? Set up a tequila tasting at The Ritz-Carlton, Dallas. The hotel’s newly unveiled Tequila Vault features a cache of rare spirits, including a prized Patrón en Lalique valued at more than $8,000. Only 100 bottles of Patrón en Lalique were ever produced.

The Tequila Vault was custom designed and crafted, and showcases agave-based spirits including the Tequila Patrón collection, Fearing’s signature Barrel Select Tequila and a wide array of mezcals, which are derived from agave.

The Tequila Vault is open nightly at 6 p.m. and is curated by a CRT-trained specialty bartender. CRT is the regulatory body that oversees tequila production in Mexico, and the newly appointed tequilier is the hotel’s official expert who will lead tequila tastings and educational events. 

If there is a better hair-of-the-dog drink than a bloody mary, we sure don’t know what it is. Visit Beaumont shared its recipe for a tasty Sunday brunch cocktail, and they even made it for eight, so you can treat your friends!

 

Born and raised in Bryan, about 90 miles east of Village of Salado, Chadley Hollas, Village of Salado’s director of tourism, says he came to the town with one goal: to help Salado become Texas’ best small destination. His favorite thing about his adopted hometown is the people. “They are quirky, creative and hospitable—a neat combination that makes for many good conversations,” says Hollas.
