Types of Tequila for Cocktails

Before getting into the recipes, it’s important to know what types of tequila can be used for cocktails and what flavors they add to a drink.

The five types of tequila are blanco, joven, reposado, añej, and extra añej.

Tequila Blanco is also known as silver or white tequila, and it’s not aged. It’s perfect for margaritas, and is agave-forward in taste.

Tequila Joven is also referred to as gold, oro, or dorado, and it’s a mixture of aged and un-aged tequila. So it’s a little bit richer and smoother in taste than tequila blanco.

Tequila Reposado, or rested tequila, is aged in oak barrels for 2 months to a year. The taste is going to be smooth with notes of vanilla and caramel.

Añej and Extra Añej translate to aged and extra aged respectively. Tequila añej is aged in oak barrels for at least a year, while extra añej is aged for a minimum of three years.

The extra time in the oak barrels results in a darker amber color and a richer, oakier taste. These tequilas are often sipped neat to better appreciate the nuanced flavors, but they can also be used in cocktails that call for darker, more mature spirits.

These recipes mostly use tequila blanco since it’s the most popular type for mixed drinks by a long shot, but there are a few that branch out to other types!
