Combier Liqueur D’Orange hosted an evening of interactive tastings and hors d’oeuvres highlighting the perfect pairing between Combier and Tequila. Three margaritas were on the menu for the night, with smoked salt on the rim - Classic (Combier, tequila, fresh lime juice and agave nectar), Blood Orange (Combier, tequila, blood orange juice, fresh lime and agave nectar), and Prickly Pear (Combier, tequila, prickly pear, fresh lime juice and agave nectar). The Prickly Pear was definitely the drink of choice, while shots of Combier were on hand for a stronger effect. Guests enjoyed crab cakes, quesadillas, potato puffs and coconut shrimp.
