Get out the salt and limes — it’s time for tequila.
Not only on Cinco de Mayo or on National Margarita Day, but any time there is a celebration, tequila is one of the best things to have on hand, adding some life to any party.
Fun fact: tequila is one of the only alcoholic drinks that is known for being more of an “upper” as opposed to a depressant, leading us to believe why it may be so widely consumed at fun fiestas. Plus, the spirit is delicious by itself, on the rocks or blended into beloved beverages like margaritas, Palomas and more.
There are also different types of tequila, depending on how the drink is made, including the main three — blanco, reposado and añejo. Blanco, or silver tequila, has not been aged at all, resulting in a clear color. Reposado is the middle child, so to speak, and is typically aged between two to 12 months in an oak barrel that gives off a darker color. Finally, añejo is aged the longest, between one and four years for a richer color and depth of flavor.
No matter which you choose to cheers with, we have a tequila brand for you. Read on for a list of the classics like Patrón and more recent trendy tequilas like Kendall Jenner’s 818 and the pink colored Calirosa. Plus, they can all be delivered right to your door with Drizly, ReserveBar, Minibar Delivery and more.
For those that love luxury, this tequila brand is for you and sure to impress. Tequila Komos is made with 100% blue agave and turned into a tequila blanco. Then the magic happens in French oak white wine barrels when the tequila is aged and then after that, it is rested in Greek amphorae for a Mediterranean flare unlike anything else.
