Pro Tips

  • Use high-quality tequila for the best flavor. A smooth blanco tequila works great.

Which Liquor Brands to Choose

For tequila, choices like Espolòn Blanco or Patrón Silver are fantastic tequila brands that mix well and taste great. For the elderflower liqueur, St-Germain is the go-to for its smooth and floral flavor that perfectly complements the tequila.
