Oops, did I order that margarita?
Becky and I went in to El Chico (hadnt been there in years), I asked to be seated next to the bar....naturally I wanted to see what tequilas I could pick from. The normal bar in Waco stocks about 4-8 brands of tequila so I wasnt expecting much...but hoping for something out of the ordinary.
I got my surprise! They had a tequila list on the back of the margarita book on the table....it had about 12 tequilas (only about 5 100% Agave)...so I started to pick my first margarita out and decided to go with a Cazadores Repo Rita which was only about 6.49. I thought it was a deal.
Our food came and went, I started scoping the bar and noticed so many different tequilas that were not on the list at the table. Don Eduardo, Chinaco, Herradura, El Tesoro, Jose Cuervo Anejo (it appeared empty), and Cuervo RDLF Anejo and Platino....etc.
I decided I wanted an El Tesoro Anejo margarita. It happend to be sitting next to a bottle of Herradura Selecion Suprema. I told the waiter I wanted a El Tesoro Anejo Rita and he looked at me like I was retarded. So I got up and pointed accross the bar at the tequila I wanted and went and sat back down. He came back by 2 minutes later and said, are you sure you want that tequila? I said YES!...I didnt know why he wouldnt just go get the bartender to make it.
Anyways, the margarita came out in a pretty glass (different than the one previously)...it tasted great, I slurped it down and asked for the check. The check came and I noticed that what I thought was a El Tesoro Anejo margarita was actually a Herradura Seleccion Suprema Margarita and it cost me 29.99!!!! That was more than the total of both Becky and my food + my other rita. Our bill was about 60.00.
I called the server back and asked if it was a mistake. He said, no...I pointed to that bottle. I started looking on the shelf and right next to El Tesoro Anejo is Herradura Seleccion Suprema. Because he was not knowledgable of what they carried, he just pointed to the Seleccion Suprema out to the bartender and didnt tell her I wanted El Tesoro. She asked him to make sure I wanted that in a margarita.
So I paid for the damn 30.00 margarita. I was upset but it was a mistake that could of happened to anyone so I shook it off.
The worst part about it is, I have never tried Herradura Seleccion Suprema and I would have loved to try it in a glass. My fiancee would never let me spend 30.00 on a drink so I screwed myself out of the opportunity for now. ARGH!!!!!!!!
Tequila Don Valente....ask for it.
