Instead of lime, pair with a grapefruit wedge. Elevate the garnish dust it with salt, sugar, and orange zest.

Casamigos Añejo
Casamigos Añejo, aged for 14 months in premium American white oak barrels, is beautifully pure and complex. The tequila has the perfect balance of sweetness from the Blue Weber agaves, with subtle hints of spice and barrel oak, and offers a lingering smooth finish.

Katiedot- you've done an excellent job on this campaign.  George and Rande should give you a significant raise.   One question... how many drink concoctions did you have to sample before you chose these??
