Tequila tourism from San Diego to Tijuana

Tequila tourism from San Diego to Tijuana 

First things first – San Diego (US) and Tijuana (Mexico) are just 25 miles apart. All you need is a valid passport and a car to travel between the cities. But, if your plan involves drinking tequila, you better have a designated driver to take you there, and back.

Tequila is probably the most famous Mexican distilled beverage, made from blue agave plant. It is commonly served as a shot with salt and lime. Tequila must have 35% – 55% alcohol content, which requires you to drink it with the awareness that you can get tipsy easily. There are 4 different types of tequila, depending on the aging process and period: Blanco (white, unaged or less than 2 months into the aging process), Reposado (rested, from 2 months up to 1 year), Añejo (aged, or vintage – 1 year but less than 3 years old), and Extra Añejo (extra aged, ultra-aged – more than 3 years). All types of tequila are left in oak barrels to age. Tequila is often included in different cocktails, such as Margaritas, Tequila Sunrises, Palomas, and Mexican Mules, to name drop the most famous ones.

Keeping all this knowledge in mind, we can now plan your tequila drinking / tasting tour around San Diego, all the way down to Tijuana. Where do we start?
