Fall Tequila Cocktails

Fall Tequila cocktails using reposado and anejo Tequila to makr good Tequila drinks. It's what to mix with Tequila

Temperatures begin to drop, leaves turn to shades of red, and layering becomes a necessity. These telltale signs of fall mean that its time to change what you mix with Tequila. In fact, it’s time for a whole new kind of Tequila cocktail.

As the days get shorter, many people opt to darker, aged spirits, like a Reposado Tequila or an AƱejo Tequila. The aged spirits adopt the flavor profiles of barrels in which they have rested. In the case of Tres Agaves, that means butterscotch, cinnamon, or caramel from our Jack Daniels and 4 Roses barrels. These flavors bring a certain warmth during the cooling months.

Secondly, it’s time for any fruit in our drinks to adapt to the season. Can you image drinking lime margaritas in November, while crunched leaves and the early autumnal rain pours? Unless you’re inviting us on your next trip to Sayulita, we’ll pass. So consider things like pomegranates as an alternative.

So, for those of us wanting Tequila cocktails that match the changing seasons, here are a few of our favorite fall Tequila cocktails.
