We are tasting five different blanco tequila’s under $30 (for our region of the world anyway), the most expensive in our list is Teramana Tequila (the Rock’s new brand) at 29.99 with the least expensive being Lunazul at roughly 17.99. Our goal is to best understand if they taste different and if that difference justifies the added cost.
The goal is to understand if we can pull out unique tastes within each product, and some tend to be more citrus-forwards, others a bit stronger, some sweeter and others just ‘meh.’ The tequila makes a difference when you’re building against the same recipe, here is the recipe:
2 oz Blanco Tequila
1 oz Fresh Squeezed Lime Juice
3/4 oz Orange Liqueur
3/4 oz Agave Nectar
You’ll find the recipe is our go-to Margarita recipe, we did not want to create a recipe that would make the tequila stand out anymore because it would be disingenuous to build out a recipe nobody would drink just so we can taste test the products. If you wanna taste test the products side by side, then do them straight up. However, we want to know … can you tell the difference when you’re ordering a margarita or selecting the product for a margarita based party.
What’s your favorite tequila based cocktail? Is it the margarita? Let us know!
