A few nights ago Perry Farrell hosted me and a few of other social media influencers to experience a French-food tasting paired with Maestro Dobel Tequila cocktails at Bagatelle Los Angeles.
An avid Tequila fan, Perry also happens to be the spokesperson for this brand, that gives him a "cheery buzz."
Our evening was filled with lively conversations, and a delicious four-course dinner created by Chef Robert Liberato, that was paired with four different tequila cocktails using the Silver, Diamanté, Reposado and Anejo expressions.

While all cook tails elevated each dish, my favorite tequila cocktail was the "Facing West" for it's light and refreshing flavor. I imagine it being a great cocktail for holiday parties as well as summer get togethernes.
