Cilantro and jalapeño margarita.Cilantro and Jalapeño margarita - SAVOIR FAIRE by enrilemoineEl hotel de los secretos (The Hotel of Secrets,) that’s how it’s called this cocktail which is essentially, a cilantro and jalapeño margarita. It was named after El hotel de los secretos, the newest Univision TV series. Two weeks ago I had the pleasure of attending the private screening at Soho Beach House, one of my favorite places in South Beach and this is what I got.

At Soho Beach House there was the producer Roberto Gómez Fernández, the cast including Erick Elías, Daniela Romo, Diana Bracho and Jorge Posa, Univision talent, and journalists and bloggers. And we all enjoyed the first episode of this super production, entirely filmed in Mexico.

And there was also El hotel de los secretos, the drink I managed to barely taste because I had to go to another event and was that evening driver. But the perflectly balanced concoction, with the oak tequila flavor, spicy jalapeño, citrusy lemon and aromatic cilantro charmed my palate in just one sip. No matter how they name it, it was the perfect cilantro and jalapeño margarita.

So I decided to mix and shake it at home when my friend Diana Tissel came to visit. And it passed the test. Today I mixed up again, this time chez my buddy Ana Cristina Enríquez, who is a Mexican from Chihuahua and can appreciate better than me, for sure, a good tequila cocktail. And my cilantro and jalapeño margarita passed the test again!

Cilantro and jalapeño margaritaSo thanks Univision and El hotel de los secretos for the inspiration. It is no secret that now I can do and enjoy tequila cocktails. Cheers to this wonderful cilantro and jalapeño margarita!
