Catadores Club Tequila Pairing Dinner
November 1 @ 6:30 pm - 8:30 pm
Savannah Tequila Co. at Plant Riverside District, located at 400 W. River St., will host a special Catadores Club Tequila Pairing Dinner to celebrate the traditional Mexican holiday Día de los Muertos or Day of the Dead. This one-night-only dining experience will offer an exquisite five-course dinner designed to complement the smooth, complex flavors of Hornitos premium tequila on Wednesday, Nov. 1 at 6:30 p.m.
Plant Riverside District Executive Chef Eric Fullem and his talented culinary team have thoughtfully prepared an authentic Mexican menu inspired by the bright marigold flowers and ornately decorated sugar skulls that define Día de los Muertos.
“Our Catadores Club Tequila Dinner in November is designed to engage the senses, combining the rich flavors of Mexico with premium tequila pairings,” said Chef Fullem. “There’s no better way to celebrate Día de los Muertos than with an intimate, spirits-focused dining experience that can only be found at Savannah Tequila Company.”
The menu for this immersive dining experience will include:
First Course: Tamales de Puerco y Acelgas
Pork Tamal and Rajas Poblano with Charred Tomatoes and Grilled Queso Fresco
Second Course: Crema de Frijol Pinto
Pinto Bean Soup with Tortillas, Chorizo, Avocado Cream and Ancho Chili
Third Course: Lobster Pibil Panucho
Lobster dipped in Annatto Butter and served on a Crispy Tortilla with Refried Beans and a Quail Egg, Charred Avocado and Xni-pec Habanero Salsa
Fourth Course: Taco de Arrachera y Tuétano
Skirt Steak with Grilled Bone Marrow served with an Avocado Salsa and Radishes
Fifth Course: Dulce de Calabaza Cheesecake
Fall Spice Cake infused with Pumpkin Compote, Mexican Chocolate Cream, Candied Pumpkin Seeds, Vanilla Crumble and topped with Orange Blossom Gelato
Each course will be perfectly paired with samples of Hornitos tequila as well as specialty cocktails. Attendees will have the rare opportunity to learn from a Hornitos spirits specialist about the Jalisco, Mexico-based company’s smooth tequila. Since 1950, Hornitos tequila has been made by cooking 100% blue agaves in special ovens, or “hornitos.”
