          Where are you? Your selection will be 10x better in California than say in NC.

        2. try tequila 1800 anejo, it's very inexpensive but has a deep, rich, well-rounded flavor. if you want something strictly to shoot or mix, might as well go with the classic 1800 silver. inexpensive and doesn't taste like a charred oak barrel.

          1. Try Gran Centenario Reposado or Plata.

            Mix it with grapefruit juice and a splash or two of club soda.

            1. Yes, they have many hundreds of them.

              Also, a Margarita is nothing more than tequila, lime juice, and a sweetener of some by definition, any tequila that works in a tequila sour (tequila and juice) should work in a Margarita (a tequila sour with some sweetener tossed in).

                The "sweetener of some sort" in most margaritas is a second liquor/liqueur ...
