Oenos | Découvrir les vins de Loire autrement... The 7 Best Budget Tequilas The best tequilas under $25—for cocktails and sipping straight. [Photo: Jessica Leibowitz] I don't know about you, but I can drink tequila year-round. I have to say, though, I especially love it in the spring and summer. I think tequila's crisp, bright flavors work very well with warmer temperatures and longer days. This list includes only 100%-agave tequilas. Mixto, on the other hand, starts with a blend of agave juice and other sugars—glucose or fructose, or both—usually in the form of a sugar syrup. My belief is this: Tequila should taste like agave, not like sugar. Although tequila can legally be made in several Mexican states, most of it hails from Jalisco, a state in the west of the country, about midway down the coast. If you want to taste the differences between highlands and lowlands, you're best off tasting silver or blanco tequilas. These tequilas are all 80 proof (40% alcohol by volume), and the prices quoted are for 750-mL bottles (with one exception). El Jimador ($22)
Blog sur le vin I’m Very Bitter I was asked to be a part of a recent seminar on the subject of cocktail bitters, and it was suggested that I initiate the discourse with the words, “Hi, I’m Ted Haigh, and I’m very, very bitter.” I was only too glad to oblige. Historically, a cocktail would never have been a cocktail without bitters. I could write a book on the subject, turn your ear to mush, and still have enough hot air left to go around the world in 80 days. Bitters fall into 3 broad categories: Aromatic, fruit, and aperitif bitters. Dubonnet, Fernet Branca, and Malort (more correctly Malört) are all aperitif bitters. Fruit bitters, the real subject of this column, are by their nature generic and so are identified by the specific fruit that informs the flavor of each. But now I’m bitter. Note well, however, they are much handier now than when I went a-stalking them. Fee Brothers West Indian Orange Bitters: These, while being thoroughly (and appropriately) bitter, have the flavor of candied orange.
