One tequila, two tequila

It’s like a beach vacation in your glass, whether served frozen or on the rocks.


Food and Drink Features

Greg Horton
According to Gourmet magazine, the margarita is now the most popular cocktail in the U.S. Considering there are dozens of variations on the base recipe and thousands of Tex-Mex restaurants that serve only beer and margaritas, it’s easy to believe.

Evergreen wine


Food and Drink Features

Greg Horton
In a spring wine-tasting at Ranch Steakhouse, 3000 W. Britton, a group of restaurateurs, wine professionals and food-service staff blind tasted some of Napa Valley’s best wines side-by-side with Washington wines. For both Cabernet and Merlot, the room overwhelmingly chose the Washington offerings.
