What Tequila Should You Buy for $50, $100 or $200?

What tequila should you buy if you've got $50, $100 or $200 in your budget? Come on, let's figure it out.

Here at Big Red Liquors in Bloomington, Indiana, my home at liquor store, I've got a lot of tequila options now. And it's hard, right? Because you walk into a store like this, I don't know what to buy.

If I had $50, I'd get this 818 Blanco. Actually, no. No, I wouldn't. Actually, if I had $50 and just wanted a bottle, this Tequila Ocho for $49.99 is my pick. The fact that this is the same price as 818, I can't figure it out.

But actually I think what I would do is get this a Suerte Blanco for $39.99 and then get myself a pack of this here, Q Ginger Beer. Make myself some delicious Mexican mules. You get like two bucks left for limes.

If I had $100, I would want to get one Blanco tequila and then something with a little aging. So if I had $100 here in this store, I would get the Cascahuin Blanco for $45, followed with the Tequila Ocho Reposado for $55.

If I had a $200 budget, especially if I had friends coming over, I'm trying to get one of each of the main expressions. I'd start off with this additive-free Partida Añejo for $55. I'd also get a delicious Mijenta Reposado for $70. And then the coup de grâce on this, great price here at the store, Siembra Valles. This is incredible blanco for $62. You still have a little money left over for some mixers. So there you go. If you get a $50 budget, a $100 budget, or a $200 budget for your tequila, those are my picks here at Big Red.
