Best Tequila Selections in St. Louis

Posted By on Thu, May 2, 2013 at 7:00 AM

Cinco de Mayo is a celebration of the successful clobbering of the French military by a group of ragtag Mexicans defending the town of Puebla de los Angeles. France had been trying to carve out an empire in Mexican territory, and when the country sent 6,000 troops to the small town in east-central Mexico, they were confident they would overthrow the Mexican army. Thanks to some stellar planning (and heavy artillery) the Mexicans defeated the French, killing 500 soldiers.

The holiday isn't that special in Mexico outside of the state of Puebla, but here in 'Merica we like to celebrate the French getting cut down to size by feisty Mexicans. And how do we do that?

With tequila. Lots of tequila.

To help you celebrate, we've compiled a list of the restaurants with best tequila selections outside of Mexico. Actually, these are just the ones in St. Louis, but they'll definitely do the trick.

Diablitos Cantina (3761 Laclede Avenue; 314-644-4430) Diablitos claims to have the largest tequila selection in all of St. Louis, including eight house-infused varieties. To create the house-infused flavors like hibiscus, cucumber or tea, Diablitos starts with Aqui Vamos Tequila made in El Paso, Texas, and adds other flavorful ingredients to create tequilas you can't find anywhere else. It also carries more than 100 different types tequila, including reposado and mezcal varieties.
