Tequila Provisioning

Hi all,

I know that Rum is a nice traditional drink, which I like, but I prefer a good Tequila. Of course there are the normal mixes, Margaritas, Tequila Sunrise, etc.. and of course with a good Anejo you can just sip it neat or on the rocks. Lately I've tried a few new recipes with tequila also, a salsa, chicken, beef marinade. I recently had a nice extra anejo, El Gran Jubilea Tequila Extra Anejo, pricey but very very good. So what I was wondering is... How do others like to drink or use Tequila.

Now for another shot

I buy two types of tequila. Cheap for mixed drinks that use any pre-made mix, ie margaritas and good for sipping. Nothing burns my ass like someone putting good tequila into a any drink that has a pre-made "mix".

Interesting Don0190, I've never been burned by a tequila, Hot peppers on the other hand... I think traditional boat beverages should abide by the "when in Rome" rule. While flying the Mexican courtesy flag, all traditional beverages should contain tequila, while flying the Brazilian courtesy flag, they should contain cachaca, and while sailing in sugar cane country (except Brazil) they should contain rum. Seems like a fair solution to me.

Don Julio Anejo for sipping or shooting. Jose Cuervo for mixing.

I bought some stuff for $1.20 a liter in Mexico. It comes in a plastic bottle with a drunk burro on the label. It will ruin even the worst pre-made mix. It worked OK for rust stains.

That IS awesome tequila! Tequila is definitely my drink of choice, even on dry land. I got a nice Don Julio 1942 for Christmas, sooooo good!!! I prefer the blanco (silver) to the anejo because it is the same tequila with less wood taste. A few ice cubes and little wedge of lime = perfect.
