While margaritas are objectively delicious, tequila can be used for other mixed cocktails and enjoyed neat or on the rocks. But, first things first, we need to go through a little background behind the three main types of tequila: blanco, reposado, and añejo. The difference is all in the aging process. Blanco (sometimes called silver) is un-aged tequila, and is usually bottled very soon after it's distilled. As the name suggests, blanco tequila is the clearest in color and goes well in mixed drinks or as a complement to Mexican dishes.
