Cobbs (Around the Table; Martina’s Kitchen Mix) provides a coast-to-coast compendium of the best local recipes for both tequila and tacos. The author begins with a quick rationale of her love for the duo, followed by a helpful explanation of the history and differences between mescals and tequilas. Next is a rundown of the different styles and taco fillings, including a glossary of traditional meats, Mexican cheeses, and peppers, which is helpful not only for following the recipes but becoming a more informed taco connoisseur in general. Following the introduction, readers are treated to a cross-country trip spanning Seattle to Miami and everywhere in between. Chefs and mixologists from more than 20 restaurants share their best tequila or mezcal cocktail recipe, as well as their featured taco dishes. There are standard recipes (using beef, pork, or fish), as well as vegetarian options, brunch, and dessert tacos, and creative shells made from injera bread and fried nori wrappers.
VERDICT Readers ready to experiment with tacos and their accompanying tequila cocktails will appreciate these delicious, easy-to-follow recipes and tasty cocktail pairings.
