Tequila...yuk!

I had my first tequila this evening. omg it was horrible! I'm not a straight drinker, meaning I like my drinks mixed, like vodka/rum mixed with juices, and I've even enjoyed Jameson whiskey on occasion, but I can still taste the tequila up my nose! Am I a freak? I'm a Texan and I'm supposed to like tequila!

Agreed! I can't really stand tequila, though I'm fairly easy with everything else. I will only drink vodka mixed, but I'm a straight rum and straight whiskey girl. Granted, I've only had tequila once and it was in a margarita at Disney, but it was just Maybe it would grow on me like vodka didm but I'm not willing to take the extra tastings to find out.

I don't like it either! A few years ago I got the bright idea to get some and make margaritas. I was soooooooo sick the next day. Never again.

Heck I love tequila and I am not doing a shot.

One of the keys is to make sure it is a quality tequila. I get Silver Patron at Costco.

Currently my drink is....2 shots tequila or vodka, 2-3 shots cranberry, 2 shots of 7up, generous squirt of lime and a cherry. Shaken or stirred with crushed ice. Still to strong, add in 1 shot of mix.

There are different grades of tequila. If I drink it straight, I only like Anejo or Reserve grade tequila, which is expensive.

That sounds good!


I love Tequila too.

I actually like the flavor as well.(THAT may make me strange, but hey they DO have tastings and such)

It has to be good though and (for me) of the blanco variety. I also find that it pairs well with tart mixers better than sweet.

I love Tequila! I usually drink it with some lemon flavored salt. I don't drink it often, but I only buy Patron. It's an acquired taste

I liked it until...well...that one night in college. Now I can't even enjoy a margarita with friends.

I have never taken a straight shot of Tequila, and I won't.

I love Margaritas but I had to give them up, tequila makes me too hot and not in a good way either! I can drink other type of alcohol and not have that problem, so it's just the tequila.

Texans are supposed to like tequila? I didn't get the memo when I moved here. I'd say since you're in DFW to try the local beer or semi-local whiskies like Balcones or Ranger Creek.

I recently tried Espolon tequila and it's not bad. I really only add it to Skinny Girl margaritas. Yes, I drink Skinny Girl because of my wife. It's not bad!

I love Tequila! Straight up - no training wheels. I've got three different bottles going and also waiting for the stuff in my aging barrel. I have one bottle of silver, one reposado and one anejo right now....all good in different ways.

There is a huge difference between crap tequila and the good stuff.

I guess the question is what kind of tequila? Shooting some nasty well Cuervo is going to be gross compared to something like a Republic Tequila Reposado or even a Patron.

All tequila is not equal.
