4th of July Weekend: Tres Agaves Blanco & Little Angie's Ultimate Margarita

This last weekend was the 4th of July and it wouldn't be complete without tequila. I went up to the North Shore with my husband, our friend, and my in-laws. It was a great time. Small town celebration including free beer and great fireworks. As much as the beer was free I couldn't miss an opportunity to enjoy an out-of-town margarita or introduce the people I know to some new tequila.


I'll start with Little Angie's Cantina & Grill in Duluth. We had spent a couple hours playing disc golf and we were really hot when we got done. Naturally people flock to the lake to feel the cool breeze coming off of it. We did just the same. Little Angie's has a large interior but with the lake breeze blowing just right we sat out on the patio. Little Angie's had a large selection of margarita options; peach, strawberry, pomegranate, sweet tart, classic lime, etc.I chose the Little Angie's Ultimate Margarita. 

The Ultimate Margarita consists of Jose Cuervo Tradicional, Cointreau, and their famous Little Angie's margarita mix. Now, I don't know the ingredients of their famous mix... but it was phenomenal! Of the classic lime margaritas I've had, this one takes the cake. I could have had multiple. I usually order mine without salt but some how seem to always get salt. It didn't wreck anything though. There were 3 size options for your drinking pleasure; the small was a 14 oz., the medium (what I chose) was a 26 oz., and the large was a massive 45 oz! We enjoyed our drinks with some 99 cent bottomless chips and salsa. The salsa wasn't like your store-bought style. It was more authentic Mexican with a watered sauce and more pico de gallo style. A lot of onions but definitely worth the price. 

 We enjoyed free beer, a parade, and some great fireworks for our 4th of July celebration. After all that it was time to break out the tequila.In the past when I've had tequila with my in-laws its been Patron. I chose a sweeter tequila to enjoy for the 4th. I went with Tres Agaves Blanco. It was fairly cheap as far as premium tequilas go (it only cost about $23) but the taste was great. Everyone agreed that it was really smooth and enjoyable. Tres Agaves has a sweet, fruity taste to it. There is no after-burn of alcohol that can turn may people away. Tres Agaves has a distinct difference, their entire product family is made to make delicious margaritas at home! Tres Agaves is one of the few 100% blue agave tequilas still made in the town of Tequila. If you or someone you know just aren't into the spicier, highland tequilas this lowland is for you. It ends with a sort of vanilla, lemon finish that anyone can enjoy. I've heard they also make a naturally flavored margarita mix... soon to be tried and reviewed!

Happy Drinking!
