From fishbowl-sized margaritas to salty shots chased with lime, tequila has a rep for getting the party started. But the agave-based liquor can also be a nuanced, complex and downright respectable beverage. Phoenix Tequila Fest will offer you a chance to discover the hard partying liquor’s sophisticated side.
