    Hello all.....

    I know I am a little early with this question since I just started planning but.....who cares right?!

    The first night that guests arrive my FI want to do some sort of welcome get together. Initially we were thinking dinner, but then I found somewhere on this forum that some places do Tequila Tasting parties.

    Has anyone done this ?? I was wondering where might be good, and how much per person is it about. We chose Dreams Cabo because it was all-inclusive, so I'm not sure if going off the resort for something like this would be in our budget or not. Any other ideas?

        Hmmm....Tequila Tasting I don't really "taste" tequila, in fact I try to NOT taste it at all costs! Just give me the salt and lots of lime!!! J/K, I think that's a very good idea, especially in Mexico. Sorry I don't have a lot of info. That might be a good question for the hotel TA. If I find any info, I will post :)

          I haven't heard of someone conducting it but i have been thinking that I'm going to do one at my actual wedding. Just set up a table after dinner (and hopefully everone has a full tummy. and then put out some high end tequilla we'll buy and also roll out the customized shot glasses we're going to have made (as favors). We'll make a "Tequila Tasting" sign in the same style as our menus, placecards, etc. will post pics when i get to this (probably not until Oct or Nov).

            Jill hosted her own tequila tasting at the Fiesta Americana - I know this isn't what you're really looking for, but here is the thread in case you are interested:

            Hope that helps!

            I was thinking of doing a tequila tasting instead of our rehearsal dinner or as our bachlorette nite out...lol! but I haven't quite worked out the details of it yet, or found any places. My wedding plans are on hold pretty much until after I move to Toronto.

              I have a great suggestion for you. A restaurant called "Panchos". The food is fantastic and the maitre'd offers "tequila school" in which guests are given white, reposado, joven, anejo and mescal to taste. Armondo explains the history of mexican tequila, the differences between all the different types of tequila you are tasting and then will set you up at the bar, if you like, and have the bartender give you more tequila to taste depending on what you like. When my fiance and I went to Cabo in 2006 we went there 3 or 4 times in 10 days.

              Here is a link to the website: Pancho's Restaurant - House of the Best Mexican Food in Los Cabos, Mexico!..

              PM me if you have any questions.

                I have heard of it, but not sure where. You might want to try Pancho's as they claim to have the largest selection of T. in the world (over 300 kinds). THey do tastings.

                We are going a Mx. wine tasting with a Taco Stand and appetizers...trying to keep it local fare...

                    Thanks ! That sounds kind of what I am looking for. Was it expensive? (of course that is always the next question.
