The Story Behind The Don Julio Añejo Margarita

Every Margarita lover knows that the world of classic Margaritas is a diverse, richly dotted map that’s constantly adding new flavors, styles, and serves to explore. However, that said, perhaps the easiest way to upgrade this classic drink is to simply make it with a premium spirit like Don Julio Añejo. This tequila pours like liquid-gold and boasts sweeter, softer notes than what you’d find in a generic blanco –– making it the perfect companion for the Margarita’s other half: orange liqueur. Throw in a pinch of chili powder to add a little spice and get ready to toast to your success.
