The top-shelf Añejo offering from new tequila brand Dios Azúl offers an approachable, highly-sippable take on the traditional style of wood-aged tequila. A wiser, more mature cousin to Plata (silver, unaged) and Reposado (aged in oak barrels for two months before bottling) – traditional Añejo is aged for up to two years and features complex character more befitting a rocks glass than a cocktail or shot glass. The Dios Azúl is distilled in Jalisco, Mexico from 100% blue agave (their name translates to “Blue God”) and matured for 18 months in whiskey barrels – giving it a sweet, robust flavor with a hint of smokiness. This is a rich dram to savor at sundown.
Doinks and hash holes are awesome, but there’s something about a high-end Cannagar that marks an occasion like nothing else. SoCal Cannagar producer E4P offers a line of all-Cannabis cigars, wrapped in organic hemp and filled with curated flower from San Diego area cultivators, plus a boost from a quarter gram of diamond sauce. They burn slowly and evenly, with a thin hollowed-out core through the middle allowing for smooth, easy draws. We stacked the ash on a 6g GMO Sundae Cannagar, and before you knew it, our heads were filled with dreamy delusions of grandeur.

It doesn’t get much better than a top-shelf tequila and high-end Cannagar on a Friday night … or any night for that matter. The kicking back and watching the California sun give way to California stars – with a weighted glass of Dios Azúl Añejo in one hand and a fat E4P stoney stogie in the other – is an experience we’d recommend to anyone. Seriously, try the GMO Sundae. The sweet stank of that strain properly complements the smokey, confectionery notes in the tequila. Salud!
