to take advantage of their wisdom and experience.
Whatever it is, tequila
probably can't fix it, but it's worth a shot! - Jimmy Buffett

Referees Sports Bar is a chain restaurant in Mexico.
They do a great job
with their food and service, and since we are in tequila country, their list
of tequilas at the bar is stellar.

It looked clean, inviting and modern.

Tequila menu #1
Anejos and Top Shelf tequilas are
Some of the Top Shelf offerings are the
Cristalino tequilas - the trendy new clear, aged anejos.

Tequila menu #2
This menu lists blancos and
Blancos are not aged at all, and
reposados are aged from 60 days to 364 days in white oak barrels from
Jim Beam bourbon or Jack Daniels whiskey barrels.
Even though blancos
are often fiery, on this trip we learned to enjoy them for the complexity of
flavor they offered.
Reposados, a bit golden and lots
smoother have always been our favorite.
Blancos here run from just under
$3USD a glass to about $45 a bottle.
Reposados are $3USD a glass to
$50USD a bottle.
The bar at Referees
Against the wall are bottles of a local
tequila called Campo Azul. At the center are all the other tequilas listed
on the menu.
Televisions of various sizes are placed
strategically throughout the restaurant.
Our bill this evening
We purchased an order of mini burgers, 2
beers, a bottle of water and an order of 10 chipotle chicken wings.
Total (without tip) was $12USD.
Service was good, food was delicious,
watching sports was fun and you certainly had your choice of tequilas to
sip, should you care to do so!
