40 Tequila Cocktails You Should Be Sipping On Right Now! 

“Drinking tequila is more about the journey than the destination”. -Rainbow Rowell

Tequila originated in the city of Tequila in the 16th century. It is a regionally specific distilled beverage made from the blue agave plant. Since agave grows differently depending on the region, tequila typically varies in flavor. You’ll notice a sweeter aroma and taste from blue agave grown in the highlands Los Altos region. If you prefer a more herbaceous flavor profile, look for agaves harvested in the lowlands. 

There are two main types of tequila, 100% Agave and Tequila Mixtos. Mixtos must contain no less than 51% agave with various sugars and additives making up the remaining 49%. From these two categories Tequila is typically bottled into one of five categories:

Silver – a white spirit, unaged and bottled or stored immediately after distillation.

Gold – an unaged silver Tequila that may be flavored with caramel coloring, oak extract, glycerin, or sugar based syrup.

Reposado – Tequila aged at least two months in oak barrels.

Añejo – Tequila aged for at least one year in small oak barrels.

Extra Añejo – Tequila aged at least three years in oak barrels.

Tequila is one of my favorite spirits to get creative with because of how versatile it is. I’ve asked a few food blogger friends to share their favorite tequila based cocktail recipes. I’m going to warn you, they are amazing! You should probably go get a bottle of Tequila right now!
