Cacique's limited-edition "Queso and Cocktails" kits include three Cacique Quesos (cheeses) – Queso Blanco Queso Dip, Ranchero brand Queso Fresco and Oaxaca (pronounced wah-HAH-kah) – as well as all the ingredients needed to shake up signature margaritas designed by Erick Castro to pair with each.
"When it comes to Cinco de Mayo, we know people want delicious queso and great margaritas and, as one of the country's top authentic Mexican food brands, we're committed to infusing authenticity into these favorites," says Gil de Cardenas, chief executive officer, Cacique Foods. "Along with family, quality and integrity, authenticity is one of the corevalues our company is built and operated upon. We're pleased to partner with Erick Castro, a Mexican American expert in mixology, to upgrade Cinco de Mayo fans' celebrations by combining three of our favorite quesos with the outstanding margaritas he designed for the occasion."
"I've enjoyed the staples of Mexican cuisine that Cacique Foods offered in my home my whole life, so I welcomed the opportunity to partner with the brand and shake something up that will take Cinco de Mayo celebrations to the next level," says Castro, who spearheads groundbreaking cocktail programs at Raised by Wolves and Polite Provisions in San Diego and hosts the "Bartender at Large" podcast.
