This will allow you to take in all the sweet alcohol aromas without that irritating liquor scotch.

Adjust to Your Liking
Tasting your drink will enable you to gauge whether or not you'll be able to down the drink as is. But, of course, if the burning sensation is too intense, you can always add a splash of water or mix the shot of alcohol to the cocktail of your choice.
How to Drink Our Collection of Robust Tasting Tequila Brands
Sam Liquor Store stocks up on the broadest range of quality tequila brands.
To truly enjoy tequila's fruity, sweet flavor, we look to the land of its origin, Mexico, to learn the sophistication and mastery Mexicans implement while enjoying the delightful drink.
Let's elevate your drinking experience with alternative tips if you think tequila shots are all the rage.
But first, here are some tips for choosing and serving tequila:
This couldn't be further from the truth. In reality, the quality of tequila is determined by its purity, meaning it should be made from 100% agave and aged well.
Take Out Your Snifter
Authentic tequila made from 100% agave has a sensational taste and flavor profile meant to be savored in a snifter or glass.
MI Familia Flores Tequila Anejo Cristalino is an excellent example of such a tequila. The tequila is aged to perfection in an oak barrel. It features a mingle of intense flavors of aromatic herbs, cooked agave, and charming, sweet caramel scents.
If you're looking for an alternative flavor, try the Tres Agaves Organic Reposado Tequila. This award-winning tequila is perfect for sipping on a slow afternoon. It features robust baked tropical fruit flavors highlighted by oak barrel flavors and sharp lime notes.
Mellow the Flavor With Lime and Salt (Optional)
You can dip a lime in salt and suck on it after a sip to mellow down these flavors.
Chase With a Sangrita for Authenticity
As far as Mexicans are concerned, the best chaser to pair with your shot of tequila will be Sangrita.
Sangrita is a heavy citrus drink made from powdered chilies, lime, orange, and pomegranate juice.
To chase tequila with Sangrita, pour it into a separate glass. You can then sip the Sangrita between sips of tequila to bring out the peppery notes in tequila and cleanse your palate for the next tequila sip.
Cocktail Lovers Whip up a la Paloma
If you're looking for an authentic tequila cocktail, whip up a la Paloma. The tequila cocktail is made by mixing equal portions of grapefruit soda, lime, and tequila.
For extra pizzazz, you can spread some salt on the rim of your glass or add a lemon wedge.
