Many tequila aficionados turn their noses up at any example of their favorite alcoholic beverage that is not 100 percent made from the blue agave plant. But Agavero, which bills itself as “El Original Licor de Tequila” uses an old recipe to add a new twist. It is 100 percent blue agave tequila infused with the natural essence of the Damiana flower. The result is a fine-sipping liqueur that is quite similar to tequila, but lighter and more palatable neat or on the rocks.
The first rule of tequila is only drink it if it's made from 100 percent blue agave. The truth is that the mixtos that utilize less than 100 percent blue agave usually cost less. But Familia Camarena has found a way to produce a tasty 100 percent blue agave Reposado Tequila and offer it for a very reasonable price.
