Like Coconut Rum? You’ll Love This…

coconut rumSummer’s here–so you know what that means?  Tequila!  There are so many brands out there, and good tequila isn’t cheap, so let’s cut to the chase and introduce one of our favorites: 1800 Coconut tequila.

The first thing you’ll notice about 1800 tequila is that it’s ready to drink before you even open up the cupboard and grab shot glasses–the bottle top doubles as its own shot glass.

The second thing you’ll notice is that tequila has entered a world reserved previously only for vodka and rum–the world of flavored spirits.  Like Malibu rum?  Give 1800 Coconut tequila a try!

The third thing you’ll notice?  Hopefully, at some point, you will notice the tequila itself.  Here’s the breakdown:

  • Clear appearance at first, but after staring at it intently for a minute or so, you will see a bit of pale yellow when you hold it up to the light
  • Sweet, tropical notes…slightly artificial, but not in a terrible way.
  • Goes down smooth, and the flavor really helps here.  Good, sweet finish.
  • Rating?  Pretty darn good–they took a tequila that wasn’t bad to begin with and added a fun flavor we all love.  Plus, they managed to add flavor without killing the proof (it’s 70 proof, by the way)

So, next time you’re about to enjoy a margarita, twist things up a bit with some 1800 Coconut Tequila!
