Taco Rosa will host its 7th Annual “Battle of the Tequileros” on Sunday, September 22nd from 4-8 p.m., bringing together 34 different tequila and mezcal brands. The event will benefit Operation of Hope Worldwide, a local non-profit providing free, life-changing surgeries and health care for children and adults in under-served areas of the world, while creating a self-sustaining program of hope through education.
As the most diverse tequila tasting in Southern California, the event gives guests the opportunity to experience a variety of tequilas and mezcals. Guests can also enjoy tray-passed tapas-style bites from the Taco Rosa kitchen, exciting giveaways, and live music performed by The Agave Bros. of Laguna Beach. Guests will embark on a tasting journey through which they will determine winners in four categories: Best Tequila, Best Mescal, Best Cocktail, and Best Booth Presentation.
“Over the past seven years, we have seen tremendous growth of Battle of the Tequileros, with more attendees and tequila houses. We’re thrilled to provide tequila enthusiasts with an exciting and educational event which also allow us to support local organizations with a global impact,” comments Chef Ivan Calderon of Taco Rosa. Calderon was recently recognized for his outstanding community service by the OC Restaurant Association’s 2019 Golden Foodie Awards which supports Golden Rule Charity. “We are proud to once again partner with Operation of Hope Worldwide, an organization whose global reach has impacted, and even saved the lives of thousands of people throughout the developing world.”
