Alc/vol: 40%

Tequila is a very fragrant spirit made with the bulb of the Blue Agave plant. Tequila is clear to gold and is produced in Mexico. The plant's bulb is steamed for 2 days, then crushed and pressed to extract the juice. The juice is fermented then distilled twice to become Tequila. Tequila must contain at least 51% Blue Agave plant otherwise, it will be sold as Mescal. There are 4 categories of Tequila that can be found on the label:

Blanco(Silver): Clear and colorless, not aged.
Joven Abocado: Colorless, less harsh than the previous.
Reposado: Colorless or light gold, aged 2 to 6 months in oak casks.
Añejo: Gold, aged a minimum of 1 year in oak casks.

Tequila's flavor can overpower a cocktails flavor, use in precise quantities. Best enjoyed straight up (with salt, lemon or lime), on the rocks, in mixed drinks, cocktails and tall drinks. Blends well with fruit juices, carbonated drinks, Vermouth, fruit liqueurs, and coffee liqueurs.
