About Flavored Tequila

About Flavored Tequila
Given that flavored vodka has been so popular, it should come as no surprise that flavored tequilas are now appearing on the market. Flavors include orange, pepper and of course, lime for your very own margarita. Quality on the whole is average as some of these are a bit sweet, but pepper tequilas display a nice spiciness, whether you use them for cocktails or a shot.
