Washington, DC – Cinco de Mayo is a holiday rich in history and Mexican pride, and for that reason BLT Steak will be enlivening an age old Guadalajaran imbibing tradition by offering three unique twists on the classic Sangrita paired with a flight of small-batch 123 Organic Series Tequila.
[Hey! I want to let you know about a tasting event at NatGeo on Tuesday, December 3, 2019. Tickets are 20% off with my promo code BZK20.]
On Thursday, May 5th, Head Bartender James Nelson will be stirring up his own variations on Sangrita, a classic Guadalajaran aperitif and made of fruit, citrus juices and chili powder meant to be enjoyed alongside a shot of tequila.
The Blanco will be paired with a classic, tomato based, chili infused Sangrita; the Reposado will be paired with a refreshingly spicy cucumber, honeydew Sangrita; and the Anejo will be paired with a more traditional pomegranate Sangrita.
The full flight of three tequilas and paired Sangritas will be priced at $30 and will be available all day long both at the bar and in the dining room. BLT Steak is located at 1625 I Street Northwest. For more information, please go HERE.
