Tequila 101

Tequila means different things to different people. Whether you prefer your tequila as shots with a lime, in a Margarita, or enjoyed on the beach, it’s a spirit that’s easily enjoyed in many situations.

Tequila is made from blue agave (not cactus), and by law must be made in Mexico. All of the brands you know like Jose Cuervo, Patron, and others make the five types of tequila — silver, gold, reposado, añejo, and extra añejo — following these rules. Learn more about tequila using the official VinePair tequila guide, and check out our recipes for the best classic and original tequila cocktails.
