I recently got a chance to try out Sammy Hagar & Guy Fieri new Santo Tequila line. They offer 3 types (Mezquila, Reposado and Blanco).

These tequilas are a partnership between Sammy Hagar and Guy Fieri, Santo Tequilas are certified additive-free and made from the finest 100% Blue Weber Agave from the highlands of Jalisco, Mexico. Each expression is crafted with traditional methods to retain an “agave-forward” flavor perfect for enhancing and amplifying flavors in a margarita. Santo Tequila has three core tequila expressions: Santo Blanco ($44.99), Santo Reposado ($49.99) and Santo Blanco 110 Proof ($69.99).

I personally and not a fan of Mezquila only because it’s to a flavor I like so I left that tasting up to my husband who loves it. He said it was really smooth with just the right amount of smoke flavor. I LOVED the blanco tequila, actually we both did! It’s very smooth and doesn’t have a bite like other tequilas do. Overall we would buy both flavors again! It now makes me really want to try this reposado as that’s our go to style of tequila and great for sipping.

We tried a few cocktails for their recipe books and I have to say their margarita is a huge hit with just the right amount of all things! It’s now my go to recipe!
