My mom always said to use the cheapest white tequila possible, but I prefer the better stuff. This one isn't top shelf, but it really tastes great! Plan ahead for this one, because the lime mix takes about 2 hours for the flavors to meld. Don't let it sit more than 24 hours, though, or it will start to get bitter.
