    Default Cabo Wabo Tequila Thread

    Didn't know if we had a thread for this, so I figured I would start one

    I actually have never had it, but I was curious if anyone had any suggestions as to which is the best way to go in getting it? Now that I'm 21 and can legally buy, I have my eyes on the Reposado but am always open to perspectives.

    Some will say go with the Reposado for sipping and the Blanco for mixing. I usually get the Reposado since it's so smooth. The Aņejo will have a slight oak smell and flavor like whiskey/bourbon due to aging in the oak casks longer.

    Either way, mix a couple of these up for a delightful beverage!



    Organic Margarita

    2 oz. Lime Juice (freshly-squeezed)
    1 oz. Orange Juice (freshly-squeezed)
    1 oz. Light Agave Nectar (2 tbsp)
    2 oz. Tequila (Don Julio, Cabo Wabo or Patron)

    Shake on ice. Strain into martini glass with lime garnish and either sugar or salt around the rim. Drink. Enjoy!

    Don't drink anymore but that Tequila was the best. Cheap Tequila is the worst.

    Don't know why, but I've never been a fan of oj in a margarita.

    I've never been a fan of orange liqueurs like Triple Sec, Grand Marnier or Cointreau. They're more orange zest liqueurs than orange and the cheap versions leave a nasty aftertaste. Thus, in that recipe above I use the freshly-squeezed OJ for the orange flavor to offset the tartness of the freshly-squeezed lime with some sweetness and usually if squeezed properly (or muddled) you'll get a bit of the zest flavor from the rind oil as well.

    I've said it before and I'll say it again...

    It's VILE!!!

    If you enjoy sipping on a nice after-shave, vinegar and engine-oil concoction then I heartily recommend Cabo Wabo Tequila! (Not only that, you only have to LOOK at the bottle and the top breaks off, harrrumph!)

    Not only am I getting varying opinions but they're probably the most extreme love/hate opinions I could possibly get haha.

    I've dabbled with tequila and liked it, mom insisted she buy my first "legal" shot and it was Patron, I enjoyed it. I would expect to like Cabo more.

    To be honest, Zach, I'm not a tequila fan anyway.

    Now, Sam's RUM, I am really looking forward to trying...

    HA! Didn't stop you downing almost an entire bottle in one night - AND I have the photographic evidence to prove it!

    In fact, if you don't watch your step, it gets posted right here, right now...

    I'll drink to get my buzz on.

    As for "evidence" do you really want to go down that road?
