Why is tequila so popular and what should you consider when buying it?

Tequila has a unique and very original taste, which is due to the process of its production. The agave from which the drink is made adds sweet and fruity notes, making tequila an excellent base for any cocktail. There are several styles of tequila, including blanco (light), reposado (aged), and añejo (aged), each with its own unique flavor and aroma characteristics. This will allow you to choose tequila depending on your preferences.

However, remember that drinking alcohol should be responsible and conscious, so choose cocktails and drink them in moderation, following the established rules.
