A New Take on Tequila

  • Jill Newman

Infused vodkas have been commonplace for several years, and now one tequila maker has experimented with a subtle, yet distinctive floral infusion. Rosangel from Gran Centenario Reposado tequila is aged in American oak barrels for 10 months then moved into port barrels for an additional two months before being infused with fresh hibiscus flowers to create a unique flavor and its calming sunset-pink hue. Recommended to be served on the rocks, the tequila has a perfumed nose with ripe fruit and floral notes and hints of vanilla. More cocktail recipes can be found on the brand’s Web site, rosangel.com. A 750-ml bottle is priced at $36.99.
