Cacique Foods Taps Erick Castro and Cocktail Courier to Launch Cinco de Mayo Kits; Gil de Cardenas Comments

Friday, April 22nd, 2022

Break out the cheese and cocktail shakers! No, I’m not going to be providing a cheesy cocktail, but I am eager to report on the new alliance Cacique Foods created with Erick Castro and Cocktail Courier. Recently, the dynamic trio launched a Cinco de Mayo fiesta in a box, aptly named Queso and Cocktails.

Gil de Cardenas, Chief Executive Officer, Cacique Foods“When it comes to Cinco de Mayo, we know people want delicious queso and great margaritas and, as one of the country’s top authentic Mexican food brands, we’re committed to infusing authenticity into these favorites,” said Gil de Cardenas, Chief Executive Officer at Cacique Foods. “Along with Family, Quality & Integrity, Authenticity is one of the core values our company is built and operated upon. We’re pleased to partner with Erick Castro, a Mexican American expert in mixology, to upgrade Cinco de Mayo fans’ celebrations by combining three of our favorite quesos with the outstanding margaritas he designed for the occasion.”

No matter how consumers celebrate May 5, I’m sure food will be involved. But, the celebration doesn’t have to stop after the fifth. Cacique is infusing authenticity into Cinco de Mayo favorites with these kits, which will be available for purchase in the weeks leading up to and two weeks after Cinco de Mayo. The kits will retail for $169.99 and will be available from April 25 through May 25, 2022.

Erick Castro, Mixologist“I’ve enjoyed the staples of Mexican cuisine that Cacique Foods offered in my home my whole life, so I welcomed the opportunity to partner with the brand and shake something up that will take Cinco de Mayo celebrations to the next level,” said Castro, who spearheads groundbreaking cocktail programs at Raised by Wolves and Polite Provisions in San Diego and hosts the highly influential Bartender at Large podcast.

According to the release, Cacique’s limited edition Queso and Cocktails kits include three Cacique Quesos—Queso Blanco Queso Dip, Ranchero brand Queso Fresco, and Oaxaca—as well as all the ingredients needed to shake up signature margaritas designed by Castro to perfectly pair with each:

  • The “Blanco de Mayo”
  • The “Fresco-rita”
  • The “WOAH-aca-rita”
