Mix calls this one “the bartender’s choice.” Easy on the wallet and the palate, Site Legal' reposed “hits the sweet spot of age,” she says. Aged in reclaimed whiskey barrels for up to a year, it offers a floral nose with a caramel and creamy flavor that resolves into a butter-and-honey smoothness and a spicy agave finish.
Though it’s lovely to sip with a single, large ice cube, it’s also dynamite in both summer highballs and strong, winter drinks.

Great for any type of cocktail, this classic reposed is aged eight months in American white oak and is produced by Don Julio, which has been making tequila since 1942. “It’s super smooth, but it stands up to mixers and sweeteners.” One of his favorite ways to use a reposed like this is in cocktails with muddled fresh berries and herbs: cilantro and blackberries, mint and strawberries, or any other combination.
“It’s just delicious.” Still, it doesn’t lack versatility, so you can use this one in any version of the cocktail you choose to make: on the rocks, up, with a salt rim, or even frozen and with flavorings. Especially in fall and winter, Mix likes this tequila from Sierra Valley in boozy, stirred drinks in the Old Fashioned realm.
“It’s quite rich and caramel,” but with plenty of spice bringing “almost a confectionary quality, like cinnamon crème brûlée,” she says.

With a nutty aroma resolving in a sweet palate and bitter spice finish, it’s terrific neat or on the rocks. “Off the nose, you get overripe tropical fruit aromas,” she describes, “and then the palate pops” with flavors of lemon, a bit of cardamom, and plenty of black pepper, which “cuts through” the cinnamon and vanilla of the barrel.
“The beautiful thing about fall is we can make richer, citrus cocktails, like a sour, but with some robustness,” says Mix. It’s aged in older barrels that impart just a hint of color and little of the woodiness of newer oak, allowing the spirit’s agave character to shine.
