So it’s Circa 1978: Think Blondie’s “Hanging on the Telephone.” Good music and good wine reach across generations. On that very subject in 2014: Enter “Happy Hour By Phone.”
How does it work? Pick a time, say 5pm and call a friend.
Diane Weingarden, (80 years old) a resident of New York’s Manhattan, schedules a “Happy Hour by Phone” (HHBP) weekly with Judy DeMauro, a resident of Del Ray Beach, Florida.
And as Joan River’s so famously coined the phrase, “Who Are You Wearing”; Social Spirits wants to know: “What Are You Drinking?”
Recently Diane bought a bottle of Iron Horse’s Estate Chardonnay (available at River Road Wines of Edgewater, NJ) uncorked it, called Judy and voila.
“It’s a lot of fun to have a cocktail, or glass of wine and catch up,” remarks Diane. In fact: Diane and Judy have known each other for over 35 years, so there’s a lot to talk about. Diane offers, “We look forward to our weekly HHBP. Judy and I always got together for dinner when we lived close by, though once she moved South, we couldn’t meet in person anymore; the HHBP is the next best thing.”

Who can forget Tom Cruise and Elisabeth Shue steaming up the screen in the 80′s classic film “Cocktail.” Long before there were mixologists, Tom made bartending look effortlessly chic, serving up mixed drinks with flair on a romantic Caribbean island. Now over two decades later, cocktails, especially those that are artisanal like Tanteo Tequila, are all the rage.
Tanteo is the brainchild of Jonathan Rojewski. His vision along with Neil Grosscup, CEO, Tanteo Spirits: To make the perfect tequila; clean, easy to drink with fresh picked ingredients. Both Rojewski and Grosscup saw an open niche in the U.S. market.
“We tasted a lot of in-house infused margaritas. And after touring the NYC cocktail scene we decided to add value to the category by creating our own authentic brand,” adds Grosscup.
All Tanteo tequilas are handcrafted with genuine Mexican flavors: Jalapeño, cocoa, mango and guanabana. The result is a unique sipping tequila, available in a variety of indigenous flavors.
This July 4th turn up the heat and serve the signature Tanteo cocktail: Jalapeño Margarita and enjoy the local flavors of Mexico!
Tanteo Jalapeño: One of a kind, delicious with some lingering heat. Serve neat or in a cocktail.
