This Rosy-Colored Tequila is Here To Steal Your Heart (And Your Wallet)

Move over pink gin, there's another rosy-colored spirit in town. Tequila brand Código 1530 has come out with their Código 1530 Rosa, which gets its special pink color from the way it is aged.

"The aging process also gives the tequila a subtle floral flavor that’s great for mixing. You can, of course, use it for any tequila drink you choose, but we love the idea of using light-colored mixers so the rosy color continues to shine through, like a classic margarita with just a squeeze of lime or a tequila soda. Of course, half the fun can be playing with other ingredients to see what kinds of colors you can create with a little mixing."

"The Rosa Tequila isn't the only unusual color from the makers of Código 1530. While most tequilas range from white to a soft gold, the Código 1530 Origen is aged six years, giving it a deep orange color. One of the oldest aged tequilas you can buy, it's only for sipping straight-up.

According to a press release, Código 1530 Rosa is currently available in 18 states, both in bars and liquor stores (including CostCo). Prices vary by location, but online retailers typically sell it for around $60, making this a special occasion splurge for that pretty pink hue."
