There are so many reasons to love tequila. Liquid silver, if you will. It’s famously the only alcohol that’s a non-depressant. Have you ever been sad to be handed a margarita? Or do your eyes light up behind that salty rim every time? Really chew on that. 

 

In honor of Cinco de Mayo, we’re rounding up the tequilas and mezcals worth wedging your limes for. Let’s hear a ¡Pa' dentro!

818 Tequila

818 is a silky-smooth, sustainable tequila brand founded by Kendall Jenner. The recipe for her signature ‘Favorite Marg’ combines reposado with fresh orange and lime juice, agave syrup, and a tajin rim.

Patron

From the barrels to the corks, everything Patron is luxuriously handcrafted at their distilleries. Best served out of a shot glass with a lick of salt from your wrist. 

Casamigos

The small batch, ultra premium tequila brand is made from hand-selected 100% Blue Weber agaves and is co-founded by longtime friends—George Clooney, Rande Gerber and Mike Meldman.

400 Conejos Mezcal 

This is our favorite history lesson. 400 Conejos is crafted from 100% espadín agave and carries ancient Mesoamerican traditions in every bottle. It’s sweet and smooth with soft notes of wood.

Creyente Mezcal

Spanish for ‘believer,’ Creyente Mezcal will make you a believer in the smoky spirit. It’s velvety smooth and perfect on its own or to add some depth to your classic marg.
