Your Essential Guide to the Best Tequilas
Tequila has arrived long way in the last few years. Where once it is slapped with a lick of salt and a wedge of lime, it grows into a sophisticated sipping drink or a top-class cocktail ingredient. The appeal of this Mexican spirit is that celebrities including George Clooney, Justin Timberlake, Kendall Jenner, and Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson all started their own tequila brands, and with great success.
Tequila -based drinks are quickly becoming a favorite of cocktail lovers.

The tequila variations are very nice in Mexican food, too.
