To make a fantastic drink, sometimes all you need is one perfectly-aged bottle of tequila. I’d like to introduce you to: Reserva de la Familia® by Jose Cuervo. If you’ve ever had tequila, you are probably familiar with the terms Blanco and Añejo, but have you ever heard of Extra Añejo? Well, that’s exactly what this tequila is, Extra Añejo, meaning it has been aged for at least three years in oak barrels. This smooth, colorfully-tasting tequila is perfection simply pored over ice with a squeeze of lime to finish.
When I was first offered this drink, I almost turned it down. My thoughts were, “tequila on ice? This is going to burn and why would I want to put myself through that?” After one stern, “you can’t pass this up; you are going to love it.” I agreed and had the drink. Ever since, I have grown an entirely new respect for tequila and its finer qualities. I am not an expert, but I really enjoy learning about all the different tequilas, and as I discover more, I will continue to share what I find with you.
Do you have any you think I should try?
*Fun facts about buying this tequila are there is only a certain amount made each year, so the bottles are all numbered. Plus, every year a new artist is commissioned to create the artwork on the packaging. Making it collectable, if you are into that kind of thing.
