When making mixed drinks with tequila, it's important to choose a good quality tequila that will enhance the flavour of the cocktail. Here are some basic steps to follow:
- Choose your tequila: Silver or blanco tequila is the most common type used in mixed drinks, but reposado and añejo tequilas can also be used for more complex flavours.
- Choose your mixer: Mixers can be anything from fruit juices to syrups to carbonated beverages. Choose a mixer that complements the flavour of the tequila.
- Add ice: Fill your glass with ice before adding the tequila and mixer.
- Mix it up: Add the tequila and mixer to the glass and stir or shake well.
