  • Just in case you needed another excuse to play in the sun down in Puerto Vallarta, the CasaMagna Marriott sends word that they have launched a new tequila appreciation program titled Secretos de la Familia and they are one of the few resorts in the world where agave azul is actually grown on the grounds and used for making their very own tequila.

    According to the General Manager, the resort boasts an enormous library of this spirit including 114 tequilas regularly available by the glass and a Tequila Sommelier who hosts regular tasting classes for the guests.

  • Ok ladies - you tell us how hard it is to find a great present for us for Christmas, birthday etc. I got a great lead for you - Mantry! While Valentine's Gift giving is usually pretty one directional (with hope of getting something back later that night...) it's ok for you to send us gifts and surprise us too.

    For those of you who haven't visited an Islands restaurant, it is a surf / Hawaiian themed burger joint that 50 locations in California, Arizona, Nevada, and Hawaii.

  • kilbeggan-secret-sour-headerAre you ready to celebrate National Whiskey Sour Day on Aug. 25?

    Our goal is to help you be as prepared as possible, so here is a recipe from Kilbeggan, created by Joaquin Simo, Head Mixologist at Pouring Ribbons of NYC.

    Ready to start celebrating?

  • The following are some of my favorite tequila bottles and tequila brands.

  • tequila-avion-header-imageTequila tends to be a summer drink in the United States - it is synonymous with margaritas and doing shots on the beach or around a campfire. However, there is more to the spirit than just that. To help convince us, Tequila Avion sent us some great recipe ideas that will go well with your Thanksgiving celebrations this year.

  • tequila-avion-logo-headerMargaritas come in all shapes, sizes, and in a variety of ways –from mango to strawberry, to frozen or straight up. With all of these types of margaritas available, deciding which to drink on Cinco de Mayo can be tricky.

    So why not save yourself the trouble and go with the best? Man Tripping had a chance to try Tequila Avion reposado recently and we love the flavor!

  • Just a couple hours east of Chicago and almost the same distance from Detroit lies a wonder area just waiting for couples planning a romantic weekend. South West Michigan is a destination that continues to impress both Heather and I. Initially, it was the wine trail and the beach that drew us, but now we have grown to love exploring the little coastal towns like Saugatuck, Douglas, and St. Joseph.

  • We've looked at rums, whiskies, and even vodka over the past few months, but one fantastic spirit has escaped us. That of course, is tequila. Part of my reluctance to embrace tequila was that my familiarity with it was shaped primarily by experiences during college and spring break type situations where tequila was cheap, plentiful and tasted like shit.

  • Man Tripping is celebrating Captain Morgan's 375th birthday on May 15! If you are in Philadelphia, Las Vegas, Chicago, Tampa Bay, or Minneapolis, you can help celebrate it too. As you know, we at Man Tripping love rum, and love spirits that take us places.

    As for the Captain, he has taken us many places over the years and I look forward to traveling with him and his friends Jim and Jack on future guys weekends too.
