Some of the best tequila brands are making their bottles available for delivery, to celebrate Cinco de Mayo. Here are the best bottles to pick up online.
These days, some of the best tequilas in the world are more comparable to a fine bourbon or robust glass of wine than jello shots and beer pong
Tequila Buying GuideRegion of Origin:All tequila comes from the Tequila region of Mexico, and in order for a spirit to call itself “tequila,” it must be distilled from agave plants grown in that region.Another thing to look for aside: a four-digit number that represents each distillery’s unique code. The Norma Oficial Mexicana number (or “NOM”) is assigned by the Mexican government and certifies that the bottle you’re holding is
authentic tequila produced in Mexico. It also tells you which tequila producer it comes from. Tequila Patrón, for example, has a NOM of 1492.If your bottle doesn’t have a NOM, that means it’s not certified by the TRC (Tequila Regulatory Council), and not an authentic Tequila producer.
Types of Tequila:flavor, color and potency.Silver tequila is probably the most well-known, and it typically appears perfectly clear in the bottle. This is tequila that’s only aged for a few months, so it doesn’t have time to develop the color and characteristics that come from a longer aging process. Silver tequila is great to drink on its own, but it’s great for mixed drinks as well. It will typically taste sweeter and more refreshing, with a smooth, silky finish. headtopics.com
Añejo tequila can often be recognized by its rich, caramel color, and it must be aged for at least one year (though most are aged three years) to bear the “Añejo” name. This tequila is complex and full-bodied, and is recommended for sipping, though it works great for tequila-oriented takes on classic drinks like a Moscow Mule or Negroni as well.
Reposado tequila is also aged but the aging process can be anywhere from two months to 11 months. It has a smooth, even finish. It’s less harsh on the tongue and won’t give you as strong as a hangover… provided that you’re sipping responsibly of course.
Don’t be fooled by the “gold” label on gold tequila. These are often referred to as a “Mixto,” where colors and flavors are added prior to bottling. These young tequilas are less expensive and typically used in bars and restaurants for making mixed drinks.
100% Agave:Tequila comes from the agave plant, but not all tequilas are made with 100% agave sugar. In fact, many brands add artificial sugars or sweeteners to their tequila, which may taste good at first, but will leave you with a nasty hangover the next day. Look for bottles labeled “100%,” which denotes that it was made with 100% natural sugars from the agave plant. headtopics.com
You’ve also probably seen flavored tequila, which is tequila infused with things like coconut, lime, strawberry or jalapeno. While they may be fun for a party or to use in mixed drinks, we recommend skipping these bottles the rest of the time and just drinking tequila straight up. Why mess with a good thing?
Aging Process:Just like a fine wine, tequila also goes through an aging process. And just like wine, tequila can be aged in a number of different containers, from oak barrels to steel drums. Each aging process will bring out different flavors in your tequila, and result in unique flavor profiles that often call to mind whiskey or scotch. The aging process will also change the color of a tequila. While we may be used to drinking clear tequila, many expensive tequilas are more caramel in color, due to being aged in wooden barrels. Our suggestion: pick up a few different bottles with different aging processes to see which one you like best. This works as a great party idea too.
What is the Best Tequila?Whether you want to sip on something smooth or mix up a margarita, here are 15 tequilas you can buy online and get delivered to your door in time for your next happy hour, dinner or party.1. Roca Patrón ReposadoWe love the Grand Patrón Burdeos (
find it here), which is twice-distilled and aged in used American and new French Oak barrels, before being finished in vintage Bordeaux barrels (Burdeos means Bordeaux in Spanish). It’s like a fine wine that’s been aged to perfection. Still, its $500+ price-point doesn’t exactly make it an accessible bottle to buy. headtopics.com
Reserve BarFor a similar experience at a more casual price point, we like the Roca Patrón Reposado, which is a lighter, more buttery take on the bold and robust Burdeos. Read more: Rolling Stone »

Sorry I'm not disturbing you like this😜 watch my video please 🙏🏽 share my video to your friends cheese 🧀 Hii I'm independent artist KIRAN SHINE ALMINE Wow wow Now this song is about dance 🍳 watch this video in YouTube 🤝🏼 support me friends what are you waiting for ☮ instead of celebrating 'Cinco de Mayo' talk about the issues México is living right now, all the country is about to run out of water, two days ago a lot of people died because the negligence of our government, WE ARE DYING there's nothing to celebrate. Educate yourself
Then, I guess you will need these? Another error is the statement about reposados giving you less hangover than blanco... not only is that probably not backed up by any science but that's not even something people report or say. Not sure how that factoid ended up in this article. Uh, there is some incorrect information in this article. For one a 'mixto' is not a 'young' tequila it is very specifically a tequila that is not 100% agave (up to 49 percent other sugars, I think). So anything not 100% agave is a mixto whether or not it says 'gold'

FDA authorizes Pfizer vaccine for 12-15-year-oldsPfizer announced in late March that its clinical trials showed the vaccine was safe and 100% effective in children ages 12-15, similar to the 95% efficacy among adult clinical trial participants.
