Could someone direct me to a thread about tequila?

And is there a thread about Coca-cola?

Thank you!
Patty

I don't recall a thread specifically about tequilla. Coke topics usally are about coke with real sugar like in Mexico or around passover.

you could always start some threads.

Mmmmmm tequilla. The one single hard liquor I do like. My $50-75/bottle achilles heel.

Did you have a specific question? Or just taunting me?

I was just curious about state laws and tequila brands. I just came back from San Clemente, California and I'm jealous of the variety sold there. I live in Michigan and it seems Cuervo has the monopoly here. Patron is our favorite! I'll start a new thread and see what other peoples favorites are.

I had a 12 ounce glass bottle of Coca-cola there too. Real sugar huh? It was great! My son told me it was bottled in Mexico. Now why can we only get 8 oz glass bottles of coke here? 12 oz glass bottle of pop is better than in those plastic bottles or cans.

I like the 8oz bottles. For me, who watches his sugar intake, 8oz is a refreshing treat.
My soda-pop d'jour is diet coke.

If you can get the mexican Coca-cola with cane sugar - it's a treat! Mexican/latin grocery stores often stock it. Try there.

Distribution of premium tequilla's is hit and miss. And the further you get away from our southern border the more miss it is. Hunt in larger cities, look for boutique liqour stores. Look for small estate distillers amidst the major name brands. Tequilla is a liquor where paying a little extra more, yields a lot extra return. A smooth 5 year oak aged AƱejo is like a 80 proof kiss of sun.

I brought home Chaya reposado. Looking forward to sipping some on ice to wrap up my weekend. So many tequilas, so little time.

What a good idea...I'll try to find a Mexican store in Grand Rapids when I go back to work!

Thanks for all the tips!

Were you there to visit Nixon's house or to visit your son at MCRD or Camp Pendleton? If it was the latter, Semper Fi!

You sure got a lot of responses to your tequila thread. Congrats!
