Tequila drinks are among the most beloved cocktails in the world. The most famous of the tequila drinks is, of course, the margarita. There are many varieties of margarita, and many bartenders who claim that theirs is the best in the world.

Margaritas can be served one of three ways. They can be frozen, which means they are blended into a smooth, icy slush; served on the rocks (over ice); or served straight up. A straight up margarita is first chilled over ice, then strained into a martini glass. In this decade of martini madness, tequila drinks which are served straight up are gaining tremendous popularity.

The Best Quality Tequila Drinks

The best quality tequila cocktails are made from 100 percent blue agave tequila. The blue agave is a type of lily which grows plentifully in the arid climes of Mexico's Jalisco state. The only alcoholic beverages in the world that are allowed to call themselves tequilas are the Mexican tequilas. The name has been protected.

The better the quality of tequila, the simpler the cocktail can be. In fact, really good blue agave tequila tastes best served over ice with just a squeeze of lemon or lime. This allows one to enjoy the delicious complexity, peppery bite, and smooth burn of the tequila to the fullest.
