Calling all whiskey fanatics: Tequila is for sipping, too. In fact, the spirit can be every bit as complex, smooth and flavorful as an aged whiskey. And if you take classic whiskey cocktails—like an old-fashioned, say—and substitute the whiskey with tequila, well: pure magic.
“It’s amazing how so few people have tried a tequila old-fashioned,” David Alan, Director of Trade Education & Mixology at Patrón, says. “I actually think it’s more approachable than a whiskey old-fashioned, because aged tequila is naturally easier to sip. “In my observation, it appeals to a broader palate”
Aged tequila, he notes, is versatile and highly customizable, a fact that continues to (pleasantly!) surprise even the most committed whiskey devotees.
