Spice Up Your Labor Day With These Tanteo Tequila Cocktail Recipes

unnamed-10

You know how much we love a good spicy margarita, so when we got our hands on Tanteo Jalapeño Tequila, we had our own Rachel Zoe I die moment of blissful agave-nesssss.

Tanteo Spirits is the original spicy and smokey tequila brand, coming in three varietals: lush Tanteo Jalapeño Tequila, smokey Tanteo Chipotle Tequila, and bright Tanteo Habanero Tequila.

Three delectable expressions that are quite hot… literally.

Made from 100-percent-blue-agave, this tequila is distilled, infused and bottled (in small batches) by hand in the green hills of Jaliso, Mexico.

Fun fact, currently 80% of the distillery’s workers are women, and you know how we feel about that, #GRLPWR!

Tanteo Jalapeño is clear with a slightly blonde hue, and comes bottled in packaging made from recycled glass.

Refreshing to drink straight up, on the rocks or mixed into a cocktail, we are sure the herbal characteristics, smokey notes and cedar expressions will leave you burning, but satisfied.

Unlike other spirits that use chemicals to create flavours, Tanteo Jalapeño Tequila has excellent, savory, but sweet notes, that finish dry (how I like it) on the tongue.

So, spice up your holiday weekend with a little help from Tanteo Jalapeño Tequila and enjoy!
