A tequila-hazed food-porn pictorial from last night's dinner at Colt & Gray

Until recently, Olmeca Altos, a 100 percent blue agave tequila from the Los Altos region of Jalisco, Mexico, had only been available outside of the United States, but in July of this year, the double-distilled agave juice was introduced stateside -- specifically in Chicago and Denver -- and last night, at Colt & Gray, the tequila flowed like the river Nile into the Mediterranean, thanks to the mad mixology magicianry of Colt & Gray cocktologist Kevin Burke.

Sean Kenyon, the Denver brand ambassador for Olmeca Altos, was on hand, too, and according to Natalie Sellers, who handles public relations for the company, it was Kenyon who originally suggested Colt & Gray as the ideal place to introduce Olmeca Altos to the Denver market. "Sean turned us on to Colt & Gray, and we were so impressed by their excellent cocktail program and the talents of Kevin Burke that we knew this was a place that we could trust to put together great cocktails and a great menu," says Sellers.

The cocktails were paired with a parade of beautifully composed dishes, all of which were captured in color. Flip the page to behold the food and tequila poison porn.
