LOS ANGELES — Cacique, one of the country’s top authentic Mexican food brands, is infusing authenticity into Cinco de Mayo favorites by partnering with celebrated Mexican American mixologist Erick Castro to launch “Queso and Cocktails” – a Cinco de Mayo fiesta in a box! The kits will be available for purchase (for those 21+) the weeks leading up to and two weeks after Cinco de Mayo through home cocktail delivery service, Cocktail Courier. The kits will retail for $169.99 and will be available from April 25 through May 25, 2022.
Cacique’s limited edition “Queso and Cocktails” kits include three Cacique Quesos (cheeses) – Queso Blanco Queso Dip, Ranchero brand Queso Fresco and Oaxaca (pronounced Wah-HAH-kah) – as well as all the ingredients needed to shake up signature margaritas designed by Erick Castro to perfectly pair with each:
- “The “Blanco de Mayo” features tequila, lime juice, grapefruit juice, cinnamon syrup and angostura bitters and pairs beautifully with Cacique Queso Blanco Queso Dip – one of the brand’s real cheese dips made with fresh, high-quality ingredients, and no artificial preservatives.
- The “Fresco-rita” features tequila, lemon juice, peach liqueur, orgeat and angostura bitters, which perfectly complements the milky, salty, fresh flavor of Cacique Ranchero brand Queso Fresco.
- The “WOAH-aca-rita” features tequila, mezcal, lime juice, pineapple juice, grenadine and orange bitters, which is a delicious combination with Cacique Oaxaca – a queso that’s similar to mozzarella, but even meltier.
“When it comes to Cinco de Mayo, we know people want delicious queso and great margaritas and, as one of the country’s top authentic Mexican food brands, we’re committed to infusing authenticity into these favorites,” said Gil de Cardenas, CEO at Cacique Foods LLC. “Along with Family, Quality & Integrity, Authenticity is one of the core values our company is built and operated upon. We’re pleased to partner with Erick Castro, a Mexican American expert in mixology, to upgrade Cinco de Mayo fans’ celebrations by combining three of our favorite quesos with the outstanding margaritas he designed for the occasion.”
“I’ve enjoyed the staples of Mexican cuisine that Cacique Foods offered in my home my whole life, so I welcomed the opportunity to partner with the brand and shake something up that will take Cinco de Mayo celebrations to the next level,” said Erick Castro, who spearheads groundbreaking cocktail programs at Raised by Wolves and Polite Provisions in San Diego and hosts the highly influential “Bartender at Large” podcast.
