Margaritas are one of the most refreshing, crowd-pleasing cocktails of all time. Just like all potions, a Margarita’s tasty flavor is contingent on the quality of ingredients you use. Our suggestion is to always go for a superior, 100 percent agave bottling. Take Tanteo Tequila, it is crafted in the only distillery owned by its cooperative of agave farmers. They just released Tanteo Blanco Tequila bottled at 85 proof, to improve the traditional margarita with its higher measure of content and perfect balance of floral, sweet agave and mineral notes that blend seamlessly.

Known for creating spicy tequila expressions including Jalapeño, Chipotle and Habanero, all Tanteo tequilas are made from fair trade, 100% Blue Weber agave, then distilled utilizing traditional cooking methods and open-air fermentation. Tanteo Tequila is crafted in Mexico, in the small town of Juanacatlán, where the company places an importance on fair labor practices and employs local women, with an emphasis on hiring single mothers and widows.

On the nose, Tanteo Blanco Tequila is floral and sweet, with a hint of tropical fruits involving mango, pineapple and guava. At first sip, Tanteo Blanco  reveals notes of black pepper and minerality  to balance the sweetness of the agave. The finish is long and vibrant, offering notes of tropical fruit.

To experience the perfect margarita, we trekked to Bushwick, Brooklyn at the spirit’s newest digs dubbed Casa Tanteo. Below are the best libations that are absolutely an upgrade to the traditional margarita. So the next time, you are serving  a pitcher for crowd, try one of the delectable potions, your guests will definitely be wowed by these cool variations.
