3. Silver tequila:
With tequila shots literally being the life of parties today, tequila has managed to become one of the most popular drinks of all time. Tequilas are prepared when the juice of the blue Agave plant goes through distillation. The quality and popularity of tequila are generally marked through the number of years it is aged; the greater the number of years, the better and more refined the tequila.
Silver tequila, also known as white or platinum tequila, is one of the finest tequilas. It is generally aged in stainless steel containers for around a few weeks and is directly bottled after the distillation process. To be honest, this one requires the least amount of effort from the side of the distiller.
Silver tequila is a popular ingredient for many recipes as well, just like our Blue Frozen Margarita Cocktail. The agave’s bright essence is a beautiful addition to the Blue Frozen Margarita, and also other cocktails, like the Tequila Sunrise.
