Sometimes it’s hard to just pick one. We know we always have a hard time! To help you decide on your tequila or mezcal of choice, we now offer flights at Super Loco and Lucha Loco and techniques for the willing.
Amigo, here’s a few tips on how to sip in style:
★ Uno: Before that lovely nectar touches your lips, look at the tequila’s. Notice the differences in colour and consistency of the liquor – the longer a tequila has been aged for, the heavier and thicker it’s body will be. ★ Dos: Take time to smell the liquor – we recommend three little sniffs to savour the aroma for spice, herbs and sweetness. Tequila is 80-proof and you don’t want to oversaturate your nose with one big inhale! ★ Tres: Taste it slowly. Gone are the days of shots with salt and lemon! Take a small sip first, and then exhale - allow your palate to adjust. When you take your second sip, it will be much smoother and you will really start to taste the qualities of agave. ◊ ¡Salud! ◊
