There is perhaps no greater golf event than the British Open, no more memorable a venue than St. Andrews. This classic course has been the home of golf for more than 500 years. It was from this beautiful town on Scotland’s east coast that golf spread first across the United Kingdom, then across the globe. It’s here that the rules of the game are set. And it’s here where golf legends are crowned.

Take Your Margarita to the Top Shelf. There’s a reason that when you think Mexican food, the first cocktail that comes to mind is the margarita. The citrus and sweet character is a timeless match with spicy, salty, saucy Mexican cuisine. If you’re looking to impress, these two tips will help you make the perfect, crowd-pleasing margarita:
Better Ingredients Make a Better Margarita. Start with tequila you actually like, and build from there. Milagro Reposado is delicious, a great value, and works as a solid foundation for a margarita that overdelivers. Also, try an orange liqueur with a brandy base, such as Grand Marnier, to give your drink a layer of complexity beyond the sweet orange of less expensive triple sec.
Use Fresh Lime Juice. Sure, margarita mix is an easy solution – just add tequila, right? But all that sugar tends to overpower most other flavors – from the tequila in your drink to the flavor of the food, too. Not to mention the extra calories! Fresh fruit juice and a good orange liqueur offer just enough sweetness for a fresh and balanced cocktail.

We fell in love with Casa Noble years ago, after tasting the tequila and meeting owner and distiller Pepe Hermosillo. This exceptional producer uses organic 100% blue agave, distills thoughtfully and ages in heavily toasted French oak. The careful combination of agave balanced by high quality oak is breathtaking – the same quality shared with world class whisky or Cognac.
The Whiskey Hotline traveled to Casa Noble in the town of Tequila to find the best. After exhaustive tasting, we returned with two barrels each of three expressions, picking pairs of barrels to ensure supply. Of course, there are always subtle differences across single barrels, but we chose duets that downplay differences, seeking similar barrels that overdeliver within their style.
