Tequila Talk: Mixto
November 16, 2010In just a few months I've gotten immersed in the Tequila culture here at Tres Agaves and things I hadn't even thought about are part of my everyday "lingo". Yeah. I've now acquired Tequila "lingo".One such term that is now part of my daily parlance is "Mixto". "Mixto" now trips off the tongue quite easily. As if I've always known that Mixto was a term indicating a class of Tequilas that are blended with at least 51% Blue Weber Agave and at most 49% of other products (which typically are high fructose corn syrup and/or other sugars). 100% agave Tequilas, like Tres Agaves, are just that- 100% agave. No sugar, or anything else, added. One taste will tell ya. Not all Tequilas are the same.And now I know why.
