If you're anything like me, summertime(anytime?) is margarita time. Whether I'm kicked back on the beach with a book or hosting a backyard BBQ, a cold margarita is always my drink of choice. And while I'm willing to splurge on top-shelf tequila for sipping neat, when it comes to mixing up a pitcher of margaritas I prefer to save some cash and go for a budget-friendly option.
So, what's the best cheap tequila for margaritas? Read on to find out!
Tres Agaves Blanco Tequila - $19.99
Tres Agaves is my go-to tequila for mixing up margaritas. It's smooth and not too sweet, with just the right amount of agave flavor. Bonus: it comes in a handy liter bottle, so it's perfect for big batch cocktails.
Espolon Blanco Tequila - $24.99
If you're looking for something with a little more personality than Tres Agaves, Espolon is a great option. It's got a bit more of a peppery flavor that really shines through in a margarita.
Hornitos Plata Tequila - $20.99
Hornitos Plata is another great option for those who like their margaritas on the less sweet side. It's got a nice clean taste that lets the freshness of the lime juice really shine through.
Sauza Blue Silver Tequila - $15.99
Sauza Blue Silver is my pick for the best value tequila on this list. It's totally serviceable in a margarita, and at just $15.99 per bottle it won't break the bank.
There you have it—my four favorite cheap tequilas for making delicious summertime margaritas! Whether you're looking for the best value or the best flavor, one of these options is sure to fit the bill. Salud!
