On Thursday, September 16th, Tequila Casa Dragones collaborated with internationally acclaimed chef Gabriela Cámara of Contramar at The Surf Lodge in Montauk for a one-night-only dinner in celebration of Mexican Independence Day.
The name Casa Dragones is inspired by the legendary Dragones calvary from San Miguel de Allende. This calvary led one of the movements that sparked the Mexican Independence.
Chef Gabriela Cámara’s Menu at The Surf Lodge
The exclusive four-course menu featured favorites from Cámara’s beloved Mexico City dining destination.
Dishes included Scallop Tostada and Clam Aguachile to start. The main dishes followed, including Contramar’s Pescado a la Talla alongside Grilled Little Gems, and Domingo Rojo Beans with a Nectarine Tamal for dessert.
In addition to Contramar, Cámara also oversees Entremar as well as the newly opened Itacate del Mar, and Caracol de Mar in downtown Mexico City.
Casa Dragones Cocktails
Guests had a choice of a Casa Dragones craft cocktail. These craft cocktails were made with Casa Dragones Blanco such as The Spicy Dragon Margarita with lime juice, jalapeño, cilantro, and cucumber or the Casa Paloma.
Casa Dragones Blanco is 100% Blue Agave silver tequila. It is crafted to deliver the pure essence of agave, for a clean, smooth taste, and is perfect on the rocks or in signature cocktails.
Additionally, diners indulged in complimentary pairings that showcased Casa Dragones’ ultra-premium expressions. These included a flute of Casa Dragones Joven, and Casa Dragones Barrel Blend as a dessert pairing. This Barrel Blend is the newest añejo expression.
Casa Dragones Barrel Blend is 100% Blue Agave Añejo tequila. This particular tequila achieves its distinctive character by being aged in two styles of custom-made oak barrels. It is then blended at the end of the aging process to achieve a uniquely smooth, agave-forward taste profile.
Chef Cámara’s Accolades
Chef Gabriela Cámara was named to the 2020 TIME 100 list, the 2019 Bloomberg 50 list, and a Fortune Magazine Most Innovative Women in Food & Drink.
