    Simple in a lot of ways is better unless you are trying to impress somebody or Dennis

    I appreciate the hawt takes here on margs fellas. Mrs Snow basically lives off my margs from April to October and I'm always trying to fine tune the craft, whilst keep the cost per reasonable. Now if @Dennis_DeYoung would fucking weigh in already with the recipe for the best possible marg...

    If she likes margs just make her a classic daiquiri with Flor de Cana 7 year or Ron Abeulo 7 year. You can't really fuck those up and they are just as good if not better than a rocks marg.

    There's a time and a place for both. If I want to impress I can from years of bartending and being a consultant but I'm also perfectly content to drink something simple and decent if I'm camping or just eating tacos with my family at home.

    Tequila pics from bottom shelf to top shelf order

    Kirkland - Totally acceptable well. Of the cheap name brand tequila's sauza is probably the only one I'd buy.
    Hornitos Repasado (Silver is ok but I actually don't like their anejo) - Price point quality, decent in a drink or by itself. Most bars will have it for a reasonable price.
    Milagro/1800 silver- About the nicest thing I'm willing to put into a drink. Anything nicer and I think you are ruining good tequila with other bullshit.
    Corralejo Repasado - Just drink it. Don't fuck about with it.
    Clase Azul and others- At this point, it's all good. For the price though, either drink it at home or go to a decent tequila bar where you do a legit tasting. Ordering this at a bar that either isn't in Mexico or isn't focused on specifically tequila is ostentatious imo.

    Would be happy to read your pics @Tequilla While I'm a fan of good tequilla it isn't necessarily my drink of choice. I drink scotch if it's straight liquor and whiskey as my cocktail choice mostly.

    You’ve largely echoed a lot of my thoughts.

    My other well would be Cuervo.

    Agree that Hornitos is solid. I also will go with some Cazadores as well.

    Patron is usually good but IMO largely overpriced

    If we’re talking about good drinks when it is hot out ... I’ve largely switched out tequila for vodka

    I can't stand Cuervo. Especially because they charge for "brand name appeal". At least where I live Hornitos and Cuervo are the same price point. If Cuervo were more reasonably priced I might consider it but I'd probably still opt for Suaza. I do prefer repasado most of the time over silver though so that colors my choices. The wife prefers silver(and acts a lot less insane on clear liquor) though so I do end up drinking it regularly.

    Cazadores is better than Hornitos but usually the price reflects that. If they were the same price I would take Caza all day.

    Patron is always priced a tier above where it actually is which is why I never buy it. Good marketing of a mid-tier tequila to convince poor people that it's top shelf liquor. I can usually get an anejo Don Julio for the same price or cheaper as repasado Patron. Patron isn't bad. It's just also not that good.

    The new trend in mezcals I have mixed feelings about. While I love a good smokey mezcal I can't stand paying $20 to some hipster bartender for a mezcal margarita. Again, worth trying at home though.

    I've got a strong preference for tart/sour tastes. I don't drink whiskey sours bc I want to ADD sugar to a an already sweet liquor. I drink them bc I need something tart to balance out what I consider a sweet tasting liquor. Hence, I'd rather either use real lime juice or at most lime-ade over any kind of mixers.

    Patron is for douche canoes.


    I've got to consciously refrain from cringing when I'm out with clients or contractors and they order Patron.

    You can make a daq as tart as you want, the only ingredients are rum, syrup, and lime juice.

    @Dennis_DeYoung would you mind sharing your preferred Marg recipe with us?

    The skinny Yellow piss marg calls for 1 part lime juice, 1.5 parts Sauza Hornitos (or El Jimador silver) and 1.5 parts cheap triple sec. Used to use Cointreau or Grand Marnier but felt I liked the flavor better just using the cheap shit. Plus there's more sugar in the cheap, shitty triple sec so one doesn't have to add in any agave syrup or something like that.

    I'm mildly offended that you didn't also include asking the person whose name is central to this drink
    Sorry. Didn't mean to be so hurtful. Just had you pegged (not homo) as more of a Kirkland Signature 100% puro de agave sort of guy who wasn't as much into the snobby side of cocktail making like the RESIDENT COCKTAIL EXPURT OF THE BORED.

    Speaking of the Costco 100% agave silver - how is it? Saw it's only about $30.00 inclusive of tax for a 1.75L. I went with the 1.75L of Sauza Hornitos which they have now for $41.00 including tax which is a screaming deal. Normally I prefer a silver tequila but the Hornitos Reposado is pretty light stuff.
    I’m way more snobby with my liquor ... just don’t go super crazy with ingredients like DDY does

    Tequila is a liquor to me where the quality of the liquor used depends on its purpose. The Costco agave silver is actually quite good for a well liquor use. If I’m looking at a night making a number of marg’s for people it’s a great option. Likewise, I use marg’s a lot in cooking Mexican food whether it being taco meat or as a marinade for chicken. If shooting or going for 1-2 quality drinks in an even going higher quality is always better for the next day. In general, the clearer the tequila the better for me.

    My preferred margarita recipe is as follows:

    About 40-50% of a glass filled with tequila on ice
    Of the remainder, equal parts triple sec and either lime juice or a margarita mix (I actually prefer Costco’s vs others at liquor stores that are too sugary for my taste but to each their own)

    I then make sure that I include anywhere from a half to full squeezes lime in to finish. I’m not a huge salt guy so that isn’t part of anything that I do.
    Mix is for lazy fat fucks with no taste
