    Hope this helps!

          I would definitely go with PATRON/SILVER!! Even though Don Julio's bottles look cute Patron taste's better. I think I am going to wait till I get to Mexico and see how much an entire bottle would cost instead of doing Minis since I only need about 30 of them.

            This is one of the reasons we did almond tequila. Even the non-tequila drinkers loved it and drank it up. It's so easy to drink- you can just drink it on ice.

              I was considering this idea as well, but was concerned about the total cost and if it would be available when I arrive in Mexico.

              Here's a little more food for thought.... you can order mini somberos (Oriental Trading) and tie/glue it to the top of the bottle. It'll resemble a little man and add a little more Mexican flare.

              BTW, I love Patron Silver!! Great tequila, but it's not for everyone. All of your guests may not enjoy it.

                A little bit of info on Patron

                It would be a great idea to give out Patron bottles as gifts but be aware that Patron tequila is not real mexican tequila. Many people don't know that.

                I'm a patron drinker myself and it's by far my favorite tequila. As a matter of fact my nickname used to be Tequila QueenI am also mexican so I requested for my mother to bring me back a bottle on her last trip to Mexico. When she tried to purchase Patron in Mexico they told her she was better off buying it in the US because it was cheaper here. In Mexico, Patron is an imported tequila so it costs more there. I looked up some history on line and Patron's headquarters are actually in Las Vegas. If you look up the names of the original founders they are all american too.

                A good substitute to Patron could be Don Julio silver.

                  I was going to say that as well Monica. I didn't realize Patron was US until our trip there. Also, Cassadories (I probably spelled that wrong) is suppose to be another quality tequila. It has a stag on the front of the bottle. ALL the men constantly walked around with their hands on their head like "antlers" whenever they wanted to encourage each other to do another shot. It was pretty funny.

                      I like Casadores, and Herradura is my favorite!
