Hold on. Aren’t there like, a bunch of different types of tequila?

Why, yes! There are! To take into consideration for your tequila cocktails, you’ve got your silver or blanco tequilas, the purest form with little to no aging and no added grain alcohols or caramel color. What we know as gold, joven, or oro tequila has those added colors and grain alcohols. However, some high-end gold tequilas can be silver and reposado blends. Reposado or “rested” tequila has a minimum aging requirement of two months and a maximum of a year. Añejo or “aged” tequila has a minimum aging requirement of one year and a maximum of three years in smaller oak barrel batches. Extra añejo or “extra aged” is a relatively new category of tequila with a minimum aging of three years.

Now that I’ve been educated on tequila types, does it matter which one I use in my drinks?

Like with most alcohol, the aging process deepens flavors and brings out aromas, but this is Tipsy Bartender. You can use whatever you want in your tequila cocktails!
