Once when I was younger, I drank WAY too much tequila. My taste pallet was not very particular back in those days; glass bottle, plastic bottle, it didn’t matter. Thankfully, my tastes have evolved over the years. It’s taken me quite awhile to get to the point where I can drink tequila again, but what would have happened if I’d found a lovely little brand called Patron earlier on? That tequila hiatus may have never happened.
My husband came home from a trip a while back raving about a tequila he’d had over ice. He said he was able to sip it and it was one of the best things he’s ever had. Now, my husband is a bourbon man, so coming from him, this was big. I didn’t have the opportunity to try Patron until last year, when on a girls trip to Palm Springs, there was a bottle in the house we were staying and the owners told my friend and I to drink up. Needless to say we did, and it was the smoothest tequila I’ve ever had. There is now always a bottle in our home. I prefer the silver and my husband the Reposado, but naturally, we are happy with either.
As the “golden egg” in the Easter alcohol hunt I did for my family this year, I had a small bottle of tequila hidden in the stump of an old tree. It was the hit of the hunt and everyone was trying to wheel and deal to get it in a trade once the hunt was over!
Patron has changed the way we do tequila. If you haven’t tried it, believe me when I say you’re missing out. So, stop putting it off and go buy a bottle. You won’t regret it!
