Milagro Tequila

Posted in Products with tags on September 2, 2011 by Trader Vince

The folks at Milagro were kind enough to send me over a couple bottles of their Limited Edition Select Barrel Reserve, one an amber Reposado, the other a crystal clear Silver. Before even cracking them open, you can’t help but notice the beautiful glass agave sculptures in the heart of the bottles.

The Silver is triple-distilled in small batches from 100% estate-grown blue agave, then mellowed in French white oak barrels for approximately 35 days. The Reposado, for 10 months. Both have taken home gold medals from the San Francisco World Spirits Competition.

They also sent along some delicious recipes. As Swabbie Laura and I were headed out the door for a magic-filled night at Los Angeles’s own Magic Castle, we opted for the simplest of them: the Freshest Margarita. It’s aptly named, because we both found it incredibly smooth and fruity—in other words, everything you need for a refreshing Labor Day cocktail.


2 oz Milagro Silver

1 oz Lime Juice (fresh squeezed)

.75 oz Agave Nectar

Shake and serve over ice. Garnish with a salt rim & lime.
