No, No, No Jose Cuervo: Counsel From The Bar At Bix, San Francisco

July 17, 2008 at 5:52 am Leave a comment

While hanging at the bar at Bix in San Francisco, our Bar Tender, explained a few tequila tips to me: 

  1. The first was never to use Jose Cuervo Tequila because it has sugar in it.
  2. Second, only use tequila made with 100 percent Agave
  3. Third, if you are mixing a margarita, in his opinion, only use tequila blanco–or the clear stuff.  He said more expensive tequilas get lost in the mix.
The margarita served at Bix was tasty with a zing of lime.  It had a fresher, lighter taste than a richer, sweeter margarita.  Great for a summer night.
