5 Great Things To Do With Top-Shelf Tequila

Posted: 07/13/2012 9:14 am

By now, you're probably aware that the tequila scene is a lot more about "artisanal" and "100-percent agave" and a lot less about "Tequila Sunrises" and "shooters with a beer chaser" than it was a few years back. That said, while high-end brands like Patrón, Partida, Don Julio and the like make for great sipping on their own, we always like to mix things up a bit.

That's why we have compiled this list of five great tequila drinks in which using the good stuff really makes a difference. Tequila is a robust spirit, and a good cocktail should enhance its characteristic flavors -- while not requiring a souvenir shot glass from Señor Frog's.

Cheers!

As blues is to rock n' roll, this simple little cocktail is to the array of drinks that currently fall under the name Margarita. It’s the crucial precursor; after all, "Margarita" is just Spanish for "Daisy." We recommend using Partida Reposado, going light on the Grand Marnier and not even looking at your blender. (Seriously, maybe put it in the other room or something. We don’t want you to get tempted.)
