Best Tequila for Margaritas. Is Price really so Important?

Best Tequila for Margaritas. Is Price really so Important?

In a perfect world, the best tequila for margaritas would be the one that tastes best by itself. Enjoying those kinds of margaritas on a consistent basis, however, is outside most of our budgets. When searching for the best tequila for margaritas, one key is to find the brand that tastes the best at an affordable price. There are other considerations for margarita drinkers.  While we would all agree that smoothness is important, the taste and See the Review

El Ultimo Agave Tequila. Low Price, but how Good?

El Ultimo Agave Tequila. Low Price, but how Good?

El Ultimo Agave Tequila joins my short list of reviews on excellent tequilas that most of us can afford. I bought the 750ml Reposado El Ultimo Agave Tequila at a local liquor store for around $14.00. This puts it in the same price range of one our favorite marg-making standby’s over the last couple of summers, Olmeca Altos Tequila. The price on Olmeca ranges from $27 – $31.00 at my local liquor stores for a 1.75 See the Review

Olmeca Altos Tequila

Olmeca Altos Tequila

If you don’t want to pay good money for good tequila, you will want to read this full, review on Olmeca Altos Tequila. Before I get into the specifics of the brand and its qualities, I want to make a point about ambiance. Let’s face it, when it comes to enjoying a good tequila, atmosphere makes a huge difference. I think the reason many of us are so fond of Tequila in the first place See the Review

Best Triple Sec

Best Triple Sec

The best triple sec is one that doesn’t cost a fortune and won’t ruin a good margarita. So, where can you get a great bottle of triple sec that won’t cost you an arm and a leg? Triple sec is basically an orange liqueur which is often a popular compliment to margaritas.   Unfortunately, many of the cheap brands of triple sec I’ve tried do more damage to margaritas than good. Gran Marnier  and Contreau are See the Review

El Charro Tequila

El Charro Tequila

El Charro Tequila is an extremely affordable Reposado made from 100% agave nectar. I don’t know about you, but when I find a 750 ML bottle of 100% Agava tequila for under $15.00, I buy it right off the shelf with no questions asked. The El Charro Reposado was only $13.98 at my local, Westminster Total Beverage Liquor store, which is a fabulous place, by the way, for discovering affordable brands of tequila. There were See the Review

El Zarco Tequila

El Zarco Tequila

I’ll confess that the cool looking bottle at my local liquor store is what conned me into buying and trying a 750ml bottle of El Zarco Tequila (Silver). I went to the liquor store to get a bottle of Taaka Vodka. Being that I already had some Camarena left at the house, I wasn’t really shopping for Tequila. The El Zarco silver tequila comes in a cool-looking, blueish-clear bottle. It is obvious from the print See the Review

Camarena Tequila

Camarena Tequila

Camarena tequila might not be a premium tequila brand, but it is not a discount, bargain-basement tequila brand either. I paid about $30.00 for a 1.75 liter bottle of Familia Camarena Reposado tequila at the famous and massive Apple Jack liquor store in Wheat Ridge, Colorado. For a huge liquor store, Apple Jack only has a good, not great tequila section. The name Camarena isn’t familiar to me and I”m surprised I haven’t seen this See the Review

Rancho Alegre Tequila

Rancho Alegre Tequila

Tequila Drinker’s Best Kept Secret? A Tequila this good and cheap has got to be one of the best kept secret on the planet (at least until this article). Yesterday afternoon, when I checked the ratings websites for bargain priced, decent 100% De Agave Tequila the name, Rancho Alegre, was no where to be found. I found some other brands that were rated very high and cost around $30 for a 750ml bottle. Some examples of these See the Review
