All about tequila
You may be wondering - what technically is tequila? Tequila is a distilled spirit from Jalisco, Mexico made from the fermentation of sugars found in the blue agave plant. Sounds complicated, but this process makes the liquor we all know and love - and for that we are forever grateful.
TYPES OF TEQUILA
Margaritas, tequila sunrises and La Palomas aren’t the same without a good bottle of tequila. Did you know there are many types of this iconic liquor?
There's a few kinds of tequila you need to know: silver tequila, gold tequila, reposado, añejo and extra añejo. “Plata” or “silver” blanco tequila is unaged, so it features the genuine flavors of the blue agave plant. Tequila brands you've heard of that have popular silver tequila are Jose Cuervo and Casamigos. In case you didn’t know, blue agave is the main ingredient in tequila production. Joven tequila, as the name suggests, is young, or is a blend of blanco and aged tequila. Many liquor enthusiasts call it “gold tequila” because of its light brown color, derived from added flavors like caramel.
For a liquor that ages in white oak or French oak barrels, go for reposado tequila. Most of the time, the producers choose barrels they already used for other spirits, to impart a complex flavor. Reposado varieties age for a minimum of two months and less than a year.
“Old” or añejo tequila ages from one to three years, while the extra añejo liquors age for more than three years. They can have notes of flowers and vanilla.
HOW TO MIX TEQUILA
Tired of the same old margarita? There are many other cocktail recipes you can prepare with tequila. If you have orange juice on hand, try mixing it with an old favorite or a new tequila to create a classic tequila screwdriver. If you're feeling experimental, switch up that tequila for mezcal for something a little smokier. Alternatively, mix dry vermouth with blanco tequila for a unique kind of martini. Maybe you're not looking for any additives. If so, try sipping on tequila. Many tequila aficionados love to sip tequila over ice.
When your refrigerator is almost empty, you can still have fun by mixing tequila with any leftover beverages you may have. The resulting cocktail is simple but very enjoyable. If you want to add a healthy touch to your booze, mix the liquor with fresh pineapple juice.
