One of our favorite tequilas is expanding to a new state

Lo Siento tequila is bringing its range of sustainably sourced tequilas to Georgia

Lo Siento Tequila Lo Siento

When we came to pick our favorite tequilas for the year, one brand we couldn’t overlook was Lo Siento. This relatively new brand burst onto the tequila scene when it launched in 2021 and immediately started making waves with its offerings, which have since expanded to include Silver, Reposado, and Añejo tequilas. However, curious tequila drinkers could have a bit of a challenge getting their hands on a bottle, as the brand was previously only available in California and Tennessee. Now, Lo Siento is expanding into Georgia as well.

“This is really just the beginning of what will be an incredibly thrilling year ahead for us – we have been slowly and steadily building what we feel is going to be the breakout emerging tequila brand of the year,” said Ryan Tierney, Founder of Lo Siento Tequila. “Georgia, more specifically, is a vibrant, exciting market for us and just one of many more state expansions in the pipeline – we are thrilled to have such great distributor and retail partners already on board for what will be a massive year ahead.”

Lo Siento makes tequila from 100% Blue Weber agave, which is sustainably farmed in Mexico’s Jalisco region. With no additives and ethical sourcing, the tequila will appeal to those who are looking to upgrade from the tequila slammers of their younger days, but who don’t want to spend the Earth. At $35 to $65 per 750 ml bottle, the tequila is affordable enough to appeal to a larger crowd.

Though the brand suggests that all three of its expressions can be drunk neat, the Blanco also makes for good cocktails such as a classic margarita. If you’re after something more aged and complex though, try the Añejo chilled over ice.

This is the one step you should never skip before grilling ribs
Once you add this step to your rib-making process, you'll never look back.
Babyback ribs cooking on a grill

Come summertime, we're big on ribs. There's just something about these meaty, saucy beauties that make you want to crack open a few cold ones and invite the neighbors over. Ribs bring out our fun summertime selves with their sticky, savory, smoky goodness, and we can't get enough of them. When it comes to ribs, everyone seems to have a recipe they claim is the best, one that's been passed down for generations or inherited from some cousin's hairstylist's friend who happens to be an expert grillmaster. Now, we're not here to debate recipes, we'll save that for another day. But no matter how you season and sauce your favorite ribs, there is a special perfect-rib-making secret you should know. One that will provide melt-in-your-mouth, sinfully tender ribs every single time. The secret? Water.

By cooking ribs in water at a low simmer before grilling them, the tough connective tissues have a chance to break down, giving you a much more tender, fall-off-the-bone rib. Additionally, it helps to par-cook the ribs, so the grilling time is cut in half, making burning or the meat drying out far less of a worry. Our favorite thing about simmering ribs, before they hit the grill, is that it provides an excellent opportunity to add additional flavor by adding ingredients like extra spices and vegetables to your cooking liquid.

As Scotch is a spirit steeped in history, it can have a reputation for being highly traditional. But while paying homage to tradition is well and good, some distilleries are also interested in exploring experimental spirits that push the boundaries of what whisky can be. Beloved Islay-based distillery Ardbeg has been doing that with its Anthology Collection, which uses unusual barrels to age its whisky to create intriguing new flavors.

The first bottle in the collection, The Harpy's Tale, was released last year. Now, it is joined by a new expression: The Unicorn's Tale. This whisky is aged in Malmsey Madeira wine and Bourbon casks for 14 years, bringing notes of banana, menthol, and lime to the party along with the expected generous smoke.

How to make a mudslide: your new dessert cocktail go-to
Who doesn't love a dessert cocktail?
Mudslide

In the world of mixed drinks, the dessert cocktail doesn’t get the respect it deserves. Maybe it’s because it’s boozy, sweet, and sometimes borderline indulgent. It’s not the kind of drink you’ll just whip up on a sunny Tuesday afternoon. But it is a great drink genre for a special occasion or after a heavy meal.

We’re talking about drinks like the Grasshopper, White Russian, Espresso Martini, and the Mudslide. And while we could go into length explaining the intricacies of every one of the cocktails we just mentioned, today we’re most concerned with the Mudslide.
