Categories of Tequila
Tequila is one of my favorite liquors. It makes me happy, and it mixes so well in so many different cocktails. There are five categories of tequila. Tequila blanco, tequila joven (gold), tequila reposado (aged), tequila añejo (extra rest), and tequila extra añejo, (really, really rested).
You won't believe all of the choices you have when you shop with Drizly. Drizly has hundreds of different tequilas that you can try. And even better, they are delivered right to your doorstep!! Buying tequila doesn't get any easier than that!

Making Margaritas with Orange Liqueur, Triple Sec, and Curacao
Orange liqueur is the second ingredient you will find in margaritas. There are so many choices, and types of orange liqueur. Each is subtly different, and all three work perfectly in margaritas.
Lastly, the grapefruit juice. Pink grapefruits are sweeter than their yellow counterparts. I bought Texas Ruby Red grapefruits. You can recognize these by the pink hue to their outer skin.
My pink grapefruit margarita recipe wouldn't be complete without sriracha salt.
