Dear Diary,

I was recently hired by Casamigos Tequila –  George Clooney, Rande Gerber (Cindy Crawford’s husband) and Mike Meldman’s are the founders, and even though George makes me slightly weak in the knees I wouldn’t have taken the job, unless the tequila was damn good. If you remember my prior post Marty-ritas. My family takes tequila pretty seriously; it has solved our problems and made holidays enjoyable.

After hearing the story behind the tequila and tasting it…I was sold. Turns out, George, Rande and Mike are all big fans of the liquid that has kept the Gilmore family smiling year after year. They actually created Casamigos as their, “house tequila” in Cabo. It wasn’t a half-assed effort either, no expense was spared. It took them a year and 800 samples to find the perfect tequila recipe…and man, did they ever. They been enjoying the fruits of their investment for the past 4 years with friends in Cabo and Casamigos Tequila was supposed to be their little secret. But then the distiller called and said they’d ordered 350 cases over the years and that was no longer deemed a, “sample size.” They either had to make it a legit company or stop drinking it. Lucky for you and me, they decided on the former.

A perk of this job, besides getting to drink a killer tequila, is attending the many events we sponsor. Recently, Casamigos teamed up with the Ceviche Project for a pop-up dinner at the Writer’s Room. Octavo, the creator of the Ceviche Project, is an impeccably dressed lawyer for a non-profit organization that is absolutely obsessed with ceviche. Him and his beautiful blonde wife, that exudes charisma, travel around the world, sharing their love for this fish dish. Here’s a peak at their Ceviche Project…

After this dish I understood where Octavo’s love stemmed from. Shrimp, Octopus, Cilantro!!! Oh my!!!
