The first thing that grabs your attention about Corzo tequila is the bottle: square, smooth, and modern—not unlike a really nice cologne bottle.
But when you get past the attractive packaging, there’s a friendly tequila inside waiting to play.
It has a thin mouthfeel and an approachable taste. Though it is 100% agave, it lacks the grassy flavor often found in such tequilas.
This is a clean-tasting tequila for sipping or mixing. I found that adding a tiny splash of Midori to a classic margarita made with Corzo brought out the saltier notes and balanced it quite nicely.
On its own, what it lacks in complexity it makes up for in smoothness.
Here’s a good cocktail to try for summer:
2 oz tequila
1 oz fresh lime juice
1 oz Grand Marnier
Pour the tequila, lime juice and Grand Marnier into a collins glass filled with ice. Top off with club soda and a lime wedge.
