Agavero Tequila Liqueur
One thing we really like to do here in the Liquor Snob offices is to blow away people's misconceptions about tequila. Everyone seems to have some horrible "...and then I woke up in a jail in Fargo, North Dakota" story about the stuff, but is it really fair to blame the drink when you did 27 shots of it? Anyway, one of the misconceptions we like to do away with is that tequila is eye-searing, grit your teeth and shoot it, devil water.
One product we just discovered that could help us in our mission is Agavero Tequila Liqueur. It's made with 100% blue agave and sweetened with Damiana, a plant said to have an odor and flavor similar to chamomile, which you might be into, or cannibas sativa, which you probably are. It only clocks in at 64 proof, or 32% ABV, and we expect it to be much smoother and sweeter than other tequilas, making it an effective "gateway tequila." We'd be interested in trying it on the rocks, and we can envision it as a nice touch for some summer cocktails.
As a side note, according to Wikipedia, Damiana is believed to have aphrodisiac effects, and "Mexican Indians drank Damiana tea mixed with sugar for its ability to enhance lovemaking." We've put together a quick formula to help you get a full understanding:
Tequila + Aphrodisiac = Higher Possibility of Boom-Chicka-Wow-Wow

Ahh, yes, I love Agavaero, so sweet but still Tequila-y. Another really nice "gateway" tequila is Patron, it's like a cross between a coffee liqueur and Agavero
