Go Live The Life You Imagine

Go Live The Life You Imagine

Go Live The Life You Imagine

October 2021 is here and 2022 is just around the corner.

I am so grateful to be living in the Pacific Northwest. Fall is my favorite season here. The chill in the air, the leaves turning a bright gold and a rich bronze, the early morning fog. I could go on.

I make a point to take time to savor all that makes fall special for me.

In the past – fall was also when my mind began to drift toward  the upcoming year and I would unhelpfully fret about what the next year would bring.

I would have this underlying unease because my heart longed for a life that was more fulfilling, and more joyful than the one I was living. My heart yearned for more adventure and for more serenity.

I am so grateful that now I have those Four Treasures – Fulfillment, Joy, Adventure, and Serenity,

I am also grateful that each fall when my mind drifts toward the next year I am sooo excited because of all of the awesomeness that is already on the calendar!

My question for you is this –

What Life Do You Want in 2022 or 2023?

Know this – Life Change Can Happen. You really can change your life.

PS – The coffee in that mug is 44 North Coffee Royal Tar.

Celebrating Mezcal at Mixteca Portland, Oregon Tuesday Evening July 13, 2021 6 PM – 9 PM

Celebrating Mezcal at Mixteca Portland, Oregon Tuesday Evening July 13, 2021 6 PM – 9 PM

I recently ran into my friend Gaudencio Felipe and he asked me if I would help him promote a fun monthly event he was going to be starting up at Mixteca – the awesome restaurant his family runs.

Gaudencio went on to tell me about the monthly “Celebrating Mezcal” event he is going to have the 2nd Tuesday of every month at Mixteca. During this event they will feature a specific Mezcal and offer both a taster shot of that mezcal, as well as a special cocktail made that month’s mezcal.

I told Gaudencio that I would be happy to donate my time to help him get the word out and that I would be delighted to host their first “Celebrating Mezcal” event.

I invite you to join me Tuesday July 13, 2021, from 6 PM to 9 PM at Mixteca – we are going to have lots of fun!

Los Nahuales Reposado

The mezcal being featured Tuesday evening July 13 is Los Nahuales Reposado. This mezcal has light caramel undertones with a subtle mesquite smokiness and a sustained finish coming from the oak barrels (66% French Oak, 33% American White Oak) this mezcal is aged in. Los Nahuales Reposado is vivid, complex, and very well structured.

The Smoke is my Spirit Animal Margarita

Once you finish savoring your taster of Los Nahuales Reposado I encourage you to order the special cocktail that Gaudencio has come up with. I have had this cocktail and it is stellar!

Squash Blossom Quesadilla

Not to be out done, Mixteca Chef Paula Asunción has come up with a wonderful special that will be served Tuesday evening – the Squash Blossom Quesadilla.

This quesadilla is made with an organic corn masa tortilla, quesillo AKA Oaxaca cheese, and a squash blossom.

This is a really good quesadilla!

Celebrating Mezcal at Mixteca Portland, Oregon Quesillo AKA Oaxaca Cheese

*Quesillo is a white, semi hard cheese that was first made in the Southern Mexico state of Oaxaca. Quesillo is made with a complicated production process known as pasta filata. Another cheese made with this method is mozzarella.

The pasta filata process for making cheese is originally from Italy and it was brought to Mexico by Dominican friars who settled in Oaxaca. Water buffalo milk was unavailable, so they used cow’s milk and thus quesillo AKA Oaxaca cheese was born!

I hope to see you Tuesday evening!

Cheers,

Steven
