The Best Tequila for Margaritas in Seattle

There is a difference with just about everything in this world.  Some things are the best, and today we will review one of those things.  Please take a minute and read below so you can enjoy the benefits.

Tequila was born in the deep Mexican soil. From the city of Tequila in the state of Jalisco, in the beginning now there are 5 states that are classified as “denomination of origin” the states are other than Jalisco, Guanajuato, Nayarit, Tamaulipas and Michoacan. Which is where the good  quality tequila comes from.  The drink to be called tequila can only be made by Blue Agave Weber, anything else is simply not.

There are five types: Blanco or Plata, Gold or Young, Reposado, Anejo, and Extra Anejo, this is very important to take this into account when you are planning a party or ask for a margarita at a restaurant the best thing to ask for is a Blanco or a Plata.  Always better to ask for a specific brand and have it made natural, this means no sweet and sour and excessive triple sec. A shot of your favorite tequila, limes and a little cointreau is all you need, when you are picking a tequila make sure it’s not too expensive because you just can’t tell the difference.

If you enjoy the taste of tequila, than you really want to enjoy a anejo which is the same as the blanco but it has been aged for at least ten years. Better if poured in to a sniffer glass, just like you would with a cognac and zip to enjoy. Or you can enjoy it by not taking any of the popular Mexican ingredients out of it. Rocks glass, ice, lime, tequila and salt, tastes really good, to make it a Mexican favorite drink simply add grapefruit soda like squirt, known throughout Mexico as the Paloma.
