Tequila is one of those liquors people feel pretty strongly about. Some swear by it -- by way of a simple shot or a margarita on the rocks, tequila is their go-to drink. Others hate it. All it takes is one bad night of a few too many shots of Cuervo, and you'll never look at another tequila drink again.
However you feel about tequila, we think it's time to give in to your craving for this booze or to conquer your fear of it because tequila has been making some of the best drinks the cocktail world has ever known. Truth.
From a spicier take on the Bloody Mary -- known as the Bloody Maria -- to tropically-flavored margaritas, tequila drinks are putting other cocktails to shame.
