The weekend is almost here and I can’t think of a better way to welcome Friday evening than with spicy cocktails at Datz. Local gourmet company, Fat Cat Foods will be at Datz on Friday, January 25th from 4-6 making spicy cocktails for you to sample. Yours truly will be on hand to assist in all the fun.



Based in Orlando, Fat Cat Foods is a boutique condiments company that produces gourmet hot sauces. All of their products are all-natural and preservative-free, and are made from top-quality ingredients. Ideal for recipes,  some of their sauces are hot and some are mild  and they all feature a complex array of natural ingredients and pure flavors that complement a wide range of foods. I am proud to have a bottle of each flavor always on hand at my house and love their flavors.
