I wrote: "Greeeeat tequila! It doesn't taste like a tequila. It tastes more like wine. Upon smelling it, I can detect the fumes of alcohol." 1:47 AM

At 19% ABV, this tequila certainly should have fumes of alcohol, but the taste is just wonderful.

The owner of this bottle had a housewarming party today and I was fortunate enough to have some drops of this pomegranate infused tequila. There was only so much left and having tried it before, I was happy with about a spoonful of it. It's absolutely delicious. 9:37PM ET

This tequila is great, because it is so easy to drink. It's almost like drinking a juice.

Key Elements
La pinta is the fusion between the finest tequila and the juices of an exotic variety of the pomegranate fruit. Several people declare this variety has many aphrodisiac and healthy properties.

"La Pinta Pomegranate Infused Tequila is "Ponche de Granada," which is a very popular and traditional drink in Guadalajra, Jalisco, MX. Translated, it is Punch of Pomegranate. Similar to Limoncello for Italians, it is a drink using local and regional fruit that is readily available. The state of Jalisco has a very steady climate that is perfect for growing pomegrante. Thus, it is very common to infuse Tequila, the regional and national spirit, with its juices! Ponche de Granada is very traditional and common in Jalisco, MX. In fact, La Pinta comes from our Master Distiller's family recipe. La Pinta is delicious served chilled, on the rocks with soda or different garnishes and is super versatile in a myriad of cocktails!"
