5 Ways to Drink Tequila (Other than Margaritas)
Don't get us wrong - we love margaritas. In fact, we've developed a taste for good tequila overall, and we've learned it pays to be a bit adventurous with how you drink it. We found some cool ideas for alternate consumption methods, but we're not going to include them all here (you can figure out to drink good tequila straight on your own, right?).
Con sangrita: A shot of tequila sipped with a shot of sangrita, a chile-hot, tomato-citrus juice.
Bandera: This version lines up three shot glasses--one with tequila (white), one with the reddish sangrita (red) and a third with the greenish juice of the key lime (green)--which are the colors of the Mexican flag (or bandera).
Submarino: Basically, a shot of tequila with a beer chaser. (Sometimes a shot of tequila is inverted inside the beer mug so when you drink the beer the shot glass tips a little letting tequila escape into the beer.)
Coscorron: This translates as a "knock on the head." Here's why: Add a bit of lemon-lime soda and a few drops of key lime (limon) to a shot of tequila. Then, with your hand covering the top of the shot glass, tap (gently, please) the glass on the table and drink it down.

Oh, and by the way? Don't forget about our good friend Mezcal (like Scorpion Mezcal) if you're looking to branch out.
