Ubons Barbeque has been a favorite of mine since I attended the Big Apple Block Party several years ago. You see I have always sought out that balance of sweet to sassy, the burnt bits and the fiercely individualistic of the craft. That craft is barbeque and it runs through my veins like the life blood that pumps into my memory. I grew up on a farm in Morristown, NJ and our family had staff who raised me up like one of their own. The Ellis family taught me the Southern ways without writing anything down. But to this day, when people talk about Southern Barbeque, I can smile a knowing smile- because I was weaned on it... All the way up in New Jersey!
Ubons resembles the barbeque of my childhood. Licks of smoke, those charred bits of pig, ribs that defy the imagination on deep flavoring and a surprise. That surprise is the deep spiciness that runs around your mouth- making each sip (or bite as it is) memorable.
Casa Noble Tequila is the perfect compliment to Ubons Pit Master's Hot & Spicy Bloody Mary Mix. I don't usually gush about Bloody Mary Mix, but this one is like none other I've enjoyed. Especially with the exotic flavor of Casa Noble Tequila. There are some who might say that you cannot taste the tequila above the seasonings, yet I beg to differ. The assertive and rich flavor of Casa Noble compliments Ubons and takes it down a deeper path. A path to enlightenment? Absolutely.
Casa Noble uses French White Oak in their aging process. This oak has a tighter grain so the tequila is not colored or flavored as sweetly as tequila that is aged in used Bourbon oak casks. The Casa Noble Tequila shines through and actually exemplifies the Bloody Mary Mix.
You could say this mix is one of the best I've ever had.
There are bits in there! Bits of FLAVOR!
It's like drinking liquefied Barbeque!
Even without your usual vodka, Casa Noble Tequila more than makes up for it with pure flavor!
Isn't that what a good bloody mary is supposed to be about? Flavor!
