Nowadays it’s not at all difficult to find 100% agave tequilas. Whether your tastes run to blanco, reposado, or añejo, the good stuff is within reach. Take a gander at the top shelf.

Quality tequila can change your entire perspective, and not just by putting you on the floor (though that might still happen). This week’s cocktail is an excellent example of how to ease into an appreciation of tequila.
