It seems like when anyone thinks of an alcohol to mix with, their mind automatically goes to vodka. I mean, it’s not surprising. Vodka has a lot of properties that makes it a great alcohol to use as a base for so many delicious drinks. And its clear color makes those delicious drinks look as fun as they are delicious. It also takes on the taste of a lot of different mix-ins.
But, I think tequila sometimes gets overlooked in terms of what it can be mixed with. It can have the same clear color which means that it also can create some very fun and vibrant looking drinks. Plus, it has a smooth agave taste which makes it a little more unique than the old stand by vodka. I mean, there is a reason margaritas are such a popular drink and make an appearance on almost every restaurant’s drink menu! (ok I may be a little biased since margaritas are one of my all time favorite alcoholic beverages!)
