(Remember that the more matured a tequila is, the more mellow the flavor, so go for darker-colored aejo or reposado tequilas.) Using a wedge of lime, season it with salt and suck on it between each sip or two. If you’re sipping mezcal, you may skip the lime and use an orange slice instead if you’d like to.
How to drink añejo tequila?
Fill a snifter or shot glass halfway with your favorite aejo tequila (these tend to be smoother on the tongue), and drink it slowly, swishing it about in your mouth for 5-10 seconds to receive the full variety of tastes.
How many ounces in a shot of tequila?
Since there are just two extra ingredients (a sprinkle of salt and a squeeze of lime), your tequila shot will be 75 to 100 percent, depending on how strong you like your drinks. While shots are tiny, entertaining, and quick to consume, they should be used with caution.
