Tequila Avi贸n

Tequila Avi贸n

Tequila Avi贸n gets much of its reputation as the “tequila from Entourage,” which was apparently a sweet unpaid buddy deal. As I’ve yet to see Entourage, I just know Avi贸n based on this tasting. Avi贸n is available in Silver, Reposado, and A帽ejo varieties, with this A帽ejo clocking in at 2 years old.

Tasted alone, all three of these tequilas are world-class. There is a soapy note particularly in the Silver and A帽ejo varieties, as well as a bit of fruitiness in the Silver as well, and I’m sure it’s an outstanding mixer as a result. For a sipping tequila, the Reposado and A帽ejo are both great, but are significantly different from each other. The Reposado has a spicy woodyness that puts it more in line with whiskeys, and the A帽ejo is a smooth, mellow, subtler version of the the Silver.

Avi贸n has a really good collection of recipes on their site, and I found one that looked the best for a Fall drink: The Avi贸n Autumn Apple. I modified it just a bit for my own palate, so here’s my take on their recipe, which is high on the juice and pretty low on alcohol, so this would be a great party punch too:

  • 1 oz Avi贸n Reposado
  • 2 oz apple juice or cider
  • 1 oz lemon juice
  • 1/2 oz simple syrup
  • serve over ice in a collins glass
  • garnish with an apple slice
