Tequila enthusiasts can learn new tricks and tips for enjoying their favorite spirit from spirit expert Vicente Díaz, star mixologist at Grand Velas Riviera Nayarit. Highlighted below are just a few recommendations from Díaz for drinking the spirit:

•  Use a medium to large glass, such as a champagne flute, instead of a shot glass. The extra space encourages the oxygenation process and helps release the tequila’s natural flavors and aroma.

•  When going to take the first sip of tequila, first swirl the tequila around in the glass to help the oxygenation process. After the second sip, inhale through the nose, swallow the spirit over your tongue, and exhale. This process softens the tequila’s flavor.

•  If you are drinking tequila while eating, research what kind of tequila pairs best with certain dishes. Silver tequila pairs well with seafood, salads, or pasta. Reposado tequila, featuring a caramelized flavor, goes well with enchiladas, tacos, and a hot soup or creamy vegetable soup. In the mood for spicy food? Pair your dish with anejo tequila that stands up to the flavor. Ultra-aged tequila is best paired with bitter or bittersweet foods, or milk chocolate. Gold tequila pairs best with sweet flavors or with high-fat cuts.
