Tequila and Coke? WT?

Saw a TV ad for Cuervo Black and coke. Would anybody actually order, let alone drink, that?
and what is Cuervo black, anyway?

  1. Jose Cuevo Black Medallion is a non-100% agave anejo. It's not very good and no I wouldn't order it with coke :)

      I agree, I tried some of the Cuervo Black and it tasted to me like regular Cuervo with liquid smoke added.

    2. I don't think that the commercials have had any impact on the tequila drinking community. I haven't seen anyone order this drink mixture, or for that matter, even inquire if they should ingest such creation.

        they are probably going after the Jack and Coke crowd (don't get me started on that one). And with enough marketing, they'll probably succeed.

      2. I tried Cuervo Black when I noticed it at a bar a while ago. It tasted kind of whiskey-ish. It wasn't the worst thing I've ever had, but I don't see myself ordering it again.

        1. There is a drink I've had down in Tequila (the town), called a Batanga.

          Ingrediants are Mexican Coke, a pinch of salt, fresh lime juice (1/2 a lime) & ice. Its very good.

              Doh! Yes, I just took it for granted. Sorry should have listed it as: Tequila, Mexican Coke, a pinch of salt, fresh lime juice (1/2 a lime) & ice

          1. when i was a teenager i snuck a couple of drinks from the parents "hidden" liquor drawer (just a couple of bottles they brought back from Mexico and never planned on drinking). Anyways, I made a couple of Rum & Cokes and realized that if drank too much of the rum they would notice, and at the same time I ran out of regular coke. So I had to come up with something different using the other bottle, so my third drink was a very cheap tequila and Diet Coke mix that still to this day is the worst drink I have ever tasted .
