How to Drink Tequila

March 25th, 2022

Since we are often asked how to drink tequila, we put together a guide on how to best enjoy your premium tequila reposado. Sipping tequila can be a very artful experience if done right. If you’d like to drink tequila like a pro, follow these three easy steps:

1. Setting the Scene

Did you know that you shouldn’t store cada día tequila in the freezer? Full body aromas and flavour are best experienced at room temperature. With a bottle as beautiful as cada día tequila’s, why would you want to hide us away in the freezer anyway?

We recommend sipping your cada día tequila neat to experience the full flavour profile on the nose and pallet. However, if you prefer to sip a chilled spirit, we recommend using a king cube as an overwhelming amount of ice will dilute your tequila. King cubes melt at a slower rate, meaning there’s less water dilution. Your drink will stay cooler for longer and you won’t lose all the delicious flavours. 

Learning how to drink tequila takes a few tries (not a bad problem when it’s well made cada día ;).. With glass in hand, focus on your approach.

2. The Approach

Next, swirl your tequila reposado gently in the glass. This will help direct the aroma directly to your nose. Admire the “tears” of the tequila. These droplets will slowly migrate down the sides of the glass as aged tequila will move more slowly. 

Tilt your glass to a 45-degree angle so that the alcohol vapours have a chance to escape from the glass. Lean in and breathe in through the nose from the bottom edge of the glass. This allows you to take in the aromas, and it means you’re not going to be overwhelmed by the alcohol vapours. 

Don’t lean over and inhale the aromas while the glass is sitting upright. Otherwise, your senses will be overwhelmed by the smells of the alcohol vapours (afterall, cada día tequila is 40% alcohol).

3. The Sip

Finally, take the sip, let the flavours of cada día tequila roll across your tongue. Make sure you don’t inhale while sipping. This would pull the alcohol vapours into your mouth and onto your pallet, overpowering your mouth. 

Once you’ve swallowed, exhale from your mouth. 

Repeat this process as you enjoy your spirit. There’s celebration in every sip! Continue to gently sip and notice the variety of flavours the spirit has to offer. cada día tequila’s flavour profile includes cooked agave, caramel, oak, citrus and some peppery notes on the finish. 

If this is your first sip of a spirit for the day, it will likely take your pallet some warming up to get the full experience.  The first sip will be a shock to your pallet, the second sip will be resetting your pallet, and then the third (and onwards) is really where you can appreciate and taste all of the depth and complexity cada día tequila has to offer.
