Reserva del Senor Premium Almendrado Tequila

Rich amber hue. Almond extract nose. A rich, glycerous entry leads to a lightly sweet, full body with delicate marzipan and cocoa flavors. Finishes with a long, spicy, almond nut fade and a tequila dimension that provides a good, balancing bite to the sweetness.

Almond-flavored Tea-quila Packs Punch

Blue Agave Mexican Cantina serves an almond-flavored Mexican iced tea.

"It's Amaretto meets tequila," said Sean Greenman, a bartender at the bar and restaurant, 4280 N. Drinkwater Blvd., Scottsdale.

The heart of the drink is Reserva del Señor Almendrado, an almond-flavored tequila available at fine liquor stores. Another ingredient from Mexico is citrónge, an orange liqueur created by Patrón, a maker of fine tequilas.

After that, it's a splash of this and a splash of that. "If people want to skip out on six calories, use Diet Coke. It's OK," Greenman said.

To impress your compadres, make your own sweet and sour, Greenman said. Mix equal parts of sugar water and lemon juice.

Serve the drink in a margarita or cocktail glass and cool down after a hot day.

Reserva del Señor Premium Almendrado

Almendrado is a marvelously delicious Mexican liqueur made from a blend of tequila and almonds. Possibly the best example we sampled is Reserva del Señor Premium Almendrado. It is made from premium reposado tequila and natural almond flavorings. This is the poster child for the tequila generation.
