$13.99 SF Gold medal winner in 2016. Has an odd element to it that I can’t quite place. Caramel? Maybe but the color in the clear glass bottle says no to my eye. Slightly bitter oak and the odd notes hold this back. Great for a Bloody Maria which I use it for regularly.
wow pleasantly surprised. read about this tequila online so decided to try it and think it’s gonna be my go to
Another budget tequila winner.Similar to the blanco, but with added layers of carmel and cinnamon. A nice repo, sweet, peppery, with some smoke. Not thrilled with the finish, but as a mixer it’s fine.
NOM 1603|Decent to use with margarita mix.
I was very surprised by this. Picked up for $14.99 and it was decent stuff. A definite yes for anyone on a budget!
NOM 1143|Vanilla taste with a shockingly smooth finish but not much depth. Great price point, happy to buy again when the budget is tight.
NOM 1603|This is a high rating for the price. Its very drinkable for $15 and will be fine for margaritas.
What a great value. Surprised.
NOM 1143|Lifes too short to drink bad tequila thank you hombre

What Makes A Traditional Tequila Sour
Tequila Sours traditionally consist of Tequila, lime and lemon juices, bitters, sweetener, and sometimes egg whites. Ive chosen to skip the bitters to keep things light. I find that this version is one thats loved by all!
To make this recipe Christmas themed, Ive added fresh cranberries, sprigs of rosemary, and lime slices for garnish. Santa Clause is coming to town!

Is It Safe To Drink Egg Whites
Its best to find egg whites that have been pasteurized. This way youre sure theyre free of bacteria or salmonella and you can feel totally safe drinking them in cocktails, stirring them into smoothies, or using in no bake desserts. Typically if youre using proper kitchen techniques and if your eggs are fresh, there is nothing to worry about, but pasteurized is always best.

When tequila is made the traditional way with a blue agave plant, it is naturally gluten free.
However, there are cheap brands that contain gluten, which are called mixto.
So to make sure that you tequila is gluten free, be sure that the bottle says 100% agave. That way you know that your tequila is 100% pure and gluten free.
