No, we haven’t forgot one of our favourite holidays, and we sure hope you hadn’t too. Today is no other than National Tequila Day and time to salud with some first class tequila. This time we suggest Santera Tequila – a brand new tequila that officially launched in NYC. This new line has 3 expressions: Blanco, Reposado and Anejo. It’s made of 100% blue weber agave from Jalisco. Blanco is unaged, Repo is aged in American oak barrels up to 7 months and Anejo is aged in American oak barrels up to 16 months, then blended with a reserve extra Anejo tequila (3 years old).
To show off your mixing skills, prepare this classic cocktail…
