Salud! It's National Tequila Day!

Salud! It's National Tequila Day!

Today is National Tequila Day, and so we thought we'd look to Mexico for our travel inspired recipes. So check back later today for shrimp tacos, tropical salsa, Tex-Mex nachos, and more. Until then, be sure to bookmark the recipe for the
Margarita

, and while you're sipping away, be sure to learn more about the various kinds of tequila:

  • Gold: Value tequilas that get their color from added caramel colorings.
  • Blanco (aka Silver): Unaged, clear tequila.
  • 100 Percent Blue Agave: Premium tequila made with 100% certified blue agave. It has no added colors, flavors or sugars. May be Blanco, Añejo or Reposado.
  • Reposado (aka Rested): Aged 60-364 days in wooden barrels (like wine) - the barrel provides the golden color.
  • Añejo (aka Aged): Aged 1-3 years, also in wooden barrels. The longer aging provides a richer copper color.
  • Extra-Añejo (aka Reserva/Reserved): Aged 3 years+ in wooden barrels (which are often secondhand bourbon barrels) - copper or amber in color.
