At-home Tequila Cocktail Recipes

The immense popularity of margaritas has made it the go-to tequila cocktail but there are several other ways to enjoy the refined blue agave flavor. The variety of tequilas available, from clear blancos ("whites") to dark brown añejos ("aged") to reposado ("rested"), means the flavor profiles of your cocktails will also be as diverse.
