The evening starts with Margaritas and continues with tequila pairings.
Though most restaurants would be happy to be known as a restaurant at a luxury beachfront hotel property, Cantina Beach goes beyond the call of duty.

The restaurant offers a collection of 85 different tequilas. Can't decide? Heriberto Ovideo, the hotel's on-staff Tequilier will provide suggestions. He also offers daily tequila tastings at 6 p.m. to resort guests. (A good reason in itself to plan a "staycation.")

Cantina Beach offers frequent Tequila Dinners, a wonderful way to experience the flavors of authentic Mexican cuisine. Hosted by Mexican-born chef de cuisine, Andres Parlange, the dinner is a four-course tasting menu, paired with three different Herradura tequilas.

At the next dinner, on July 21, guests will be treated to a tasting of a special double-barrel Herradura Resposado tequila crafted specially for Cantina Beach, to commemorate the Ritz-Carlton Key Biscayne's 10th anniversary.

The Cantina Beach Tequila Dinners are $75 per person with tequila, $55 per person without tequila.

The way to do tequila shots is to sip, not gulp as most gringos and gringas do. You want to swirl it around your pallet to feel and taste this nector. Try it some time.
