Milagro silver tequila
The agave used to make this tequila comes from the estate of Juan de la Torre in Jalisco, Mexico -- which, if you couldn't tell, is a good thing. Double-distilled, Milagro silver is crisp, smooth, and perfect for mixing or sipping. The heart of the agave used here is roasted the authentic way: in traditional brick ovens, over the course of 36 hours.
Zapopan reposado tequila
From Zapopan (the region), near the town of Tequila (seriously), this is a textbook blanco tequila that tastes clean and refined. "It’s wonderful for tequila-based cocktails that do not have overpowering components, especially if one wants to stay on the agave train," says Ray Tang, owner of the Presidio Social Club in San Francisco.
