We did whiskey yesterday. How 'bout a tequila shot today? In my liquor cabinet (such as it is) I have: Patron (silver and anejo), Herradura (anejo), and Cazadores. I'm looking for Conquistador, but can't seem to find it in my area. Anybody else drink this swill?

I drink Patron & Quervo. There's another one I tried when I lived in Phoenix...It had a cactus molded into the interior base of the bottle and was REALLY expensive, but I can't remember the brand. That didn't help, did it...

Don Julio Anejo = Yummy

I've allways liked the gold stuff. Two Fingers & Cuervo. I am a bit confused however as to what mezcal really is. I allways loved Monte Alban & thought it was tequilla. Still not sure what the difference is.

My standard around the house is Cuervo Reposado. A little more money at $25 per liter, but lots better stuff then the "standard" fare. cgj

What little tequila I drink is almost always Cuervo 1800. I can't stand some others. This is as much as I've tried in Margaritas. Does its job well without making me want to retch.

Shots= Cuervo Gold.... Margaritas= 1800.... Out to get out of my mind= mEzcal AND eat the worm! A little help por favor....A friend years ago had a green bottle (Looked like Cognac IIRC) I think I was told it was a Tequila, but it tasted like Amaretto, kinda sweet nutty...Warmed the belly when it went down...He borught it back from Mexico... That stuff WAS GREAT!!!!!!!

Porfidio is the smoothest Tequila I have ever had. I am sure there are others out there but this is what I am familiar with. Cuervo and 2-fingers were all I had ever had until I had some Porfidio. Ended up buying a few bottles. LB

Damn Glof! At $450(US dollars?),pricey is an understatement. If it is $450 Mexican pesos,then it is affordable!I would not want to drink it,if it is that expensive! Cuervo for 20 is plenty good for me!

You gotta be a chump to pay $450. [url=http://www.hitimewine.com/spirits_3.htm#tequila]Hi-Times Wine[/url] will send you a bottle for only $299.

Cabo Wabo Respssado Casa Noble Gold That being said, I much prefer a good whiskey to tequila.

SauZa Commem. for Margaritas Patron straight up GASP DAMN thats good

Jose Cuervo Gold mostly, but sometimes Mezcal.

LOL.....Real men drink Montezuma. I have been a serious Tequila drinker for lots of years and Montezuma is the best bang for the buck. [img]http://images.andale.com/f2/112/111/7410906/1054768582119_GoodShit.jpg[/img] [b]Anything else and your showin off.[/b] [:D]

Absolute best tequila in the world is Hussong's. It comes in a little brown ceramic bottle shaped like a cartoon bomb. It comes from Hussong's Bar in Rosarita Beach Mexico.

Cuervo for me. Did around 26 shots of it on my birthday last month and it treated me good.[bday] Although Montezuma Blue can be had for about $9 a liter so I go that route now and then also.

Herradura Reposada straight, with a G.Killians on the side. Gave up the salt and lime crap when I grew hair on my chest. Won't allow that shit in my house with ta'killya. For my weeker friends I'll mix up a batch of sangrita as a chaser. For the bullshitter who can "drink anything", I make my favorite shooter. "Prarie Fire" Tequila "seasoned" with Tabasco. Sends 'em home early!

ALL OF THEM! [):)]

I use it in cooking, but the cheaper stuff works fine for that. I like the JC, but the smoothest I have tried was TARANTULA AZUL, it is blue and yummy
Link Posted: 6/4/2003 4:25:39 PM EDT
I forgot, whatever you do DO NOT drink Dos Trios tequilla. That is quite possibly the grossest stuff i've ever drank. It tastes and smells like fingernail polish remover.

I dropped by my local liquor/wine store (Debb's in Beaumont) looking to replenish my depleted supplies of Rebel Yell and Wild Turkey 101 when what did I see but Herradura Selection Suprema at $249.99, in a fancy hinged case and everything. (I found the Conquistador I was looking for too.) Well, I bought it. And one of these days I'm going to try it. And it'll be with a cute, impressable tequila affectianada. It had better work. If it doesn't, I coming after you, Gloftoe.

My sister went to Mexico, and we wanted some tequila, but didn't know what to get. Just happened to work with a guy from mexico. His advice: --Nothing that says Cuervo ("Is SHIT"). --Single distilled --Tequila doesn't have a worm (that's mezcal--someone asked earlier). We ended up with Don Julio, which was pretty damn good. 145 pesos, or about $45. As the guy told us "Average wages in Mexico about 8-900 pesos a week. Not many people drinking that kind of tequila there." I also like Sauza Hornitos, which is a bit more reasonable on price. Never tried any insanely expensive stuff.
