Taco Tuesday is the only thing that gets us through Meatloaf Monday. And the promise of tortillas stuffed with grilled meats and toppings is only made more mouthwatering by the addition of tequila. This #TacoTuesday, skip the Coronas and pair your spread with one of these tequilas instead.
For Drinking Neat (Everyday): Milagro Reposado ($30)
Briny, sweet and smooth, with a grapefruit rind finish, this extremely affordable reposado makes for easy sipping alongside a taco feast. Its round, caramelly notes make it sturdy enough to stand up to heavy sauces like mole, but it would be equally good with carne asada or al pastor.
For Drinking Neat (Special Occasion): Jose Cuervo de la Familia ($120)
This ultra-premium offering from Jose Cuervo is nothing like the company’s ubiquitous mixto. The extra-añejo is aged in French and American oak for at least three years, which gives it a robust, spicy quality. Heavy with rich agave notes, chile pepper and vanilla, it’s best served in a wide-bellied snifter. If fatty carnitas or charred steak are in your taco line up, then this bottle belongs on your table.
