Type of Margarita Tasted: Herradura Anejo
Review: Las Mananita’s has three restaurants in Texas and we were finally able to make it out for the first time to their Richmond location (They also have businesses in Katy and Cypress) . When ordering our margarita, the server immediately asked what type of tequila we would like to use and named off about six different choices including popular brands like Herradura, Don Julio and Patron. He said there was no difference in price so we went for the Herradura anejo, what we generally consider a sipping tequila and costs more per bottle when purchasing at a liquor store. Might as well, right?
The drinks were delivered in generous sized glasses with salt lining the rim with a lime wedge for garnish. The contents looked a tad thick but the color had a nice visual appeal. On first sip, our taste buds were greeted with sweetness followed by a subtle tequila flavor. While the cocktail possessed a pleasant flavor, we wished that the tequila popped a little more to balance out the drink. We could definitely taste the tequila so that was a plus over some restaurants we have visited in the past. Overall, the margaritas at Las Mananitas were above average. It is possible that the typically bolder flavors of a reposado might have steered this drink to a higher rating so we may have to make another visit to experiment.
