This summer I was again caught up in one of my favorite TV shows, HBO’s Entourage. The adventures of Vince, Ari and the rest of the gang has been a staple in my house since the very first episode.
This season had the guys moving in different directions, doing that growing up thing we are all forced to do (that’s why my wife makes me wear pants around the house..really…pants around the house is a prerequisite for growing up? Growing up sucks!) One story line had Turtle looking for a business opportunity that would help him strike out on his own…enter Avion Tequila.
While watching Entourage, the characters are doing shots of Avion, talking about how much they loved Avion. I started saying to myself, “Damn, I want some Avion”. But you can’t drink a tequila that only exists on TV. WRONG!! Avion is real! Not only is it real…it’s real good. I had the pleasure of sampling the Avion Reposado and it blew me away! It is very rare that a tequila is smooth enough to be enjoyed just on the rocks, so I put Avion to the test. Nailed It!! Smooth doesn’t begin to explain it. There’s not much I would mix with this tequila. If you are going to make margaritas…fresh squeezed lime juice only! If you want to top it off with a little O.J…less is more with this tequila.
I read the article in the New York Post of how Avion got into the storyline of Entourage…very cool! I actually have seen how agave is grown, my friend Tom Cruise grows it. Watching him walk through his garden, is like watching a scene from “Honey, I Shrunk the Kids”. He should remake that movie, they would save a ton of money by not using CGI effects.
One downside to Avion, it’s only available in LA and New York City. Just go on their website and they will let you know how to get it. I want to send a big shout out to Avion Tequila for sending me a bottle on their dime! Don’t hesitate to send another bottle- nudge nudge, wink wink.
So if you want to party like a movie star, albeit a fake one, pick up some Avion. You’ll toast me later.
