Get Ready To Chug: You'll Have Tequila-Flavoured Beer In The City Soon

What Is It?

Beer is proof that God loves us and wants us to be happy, said the great Benjamin Franklin. That quote, which was uttered in the 18th century, still holds true nearly 300 years later. And now, Desperado, a beer that’s manufactured in France and infused with tequila, is all set to hit the Mumbai markets, just leaving us spoilt for choice when it comes to choosing a good beer.

Tell Me More

Desperado, as the macho name suggests, is a brew that has tequila infused in it. That in itself is enough to begin those drinking games and beer pong matches.

Introduced into the Indian market by United Breweries, Desperado is a full bodied lager enriched with an exotic tequila twist. People who have tasted the beer say that the zesty flavour profile contains spicy notes and hints of lemony sweetness. The beer is also served in a lovely see-through, long-neck 350 ml bottle. The beer is pretty potent with a 5.9% of alcohol volume.

According to the official website, Desperado has two other beers – Desperado Red and Desperado Black. The red is also a tequila-flavoured beer that has a hint guaraná and cachaça. So, expect it to be slightly acidic and tangy. The black, however, is a more potent beer with an extra kick of aged tequila. This beer has an alcohol percentage of 5.9%.

But the icing on the cake is a sangria-flavoured beer, which has a dash of tequila. “Sangria is there when you want to pump the party, a tequila flavoured beer shaken up with a twist red grapes, spices and refreshing notes of sangria,” the website says.

We can only hope that the other beers are available at some point! Take a look at what they have to say and check them out on Facebook.

So, We're Saying...

While we’re still waiting for its release in the Mumbai market {it’s just recently available in Delhi} we’re pretty pumped about it!

While it sounds like a challenge, but we wonder if the idea of mixing tequila and beer will go down well with Mumbaikars. Both are great drinks individually, but a combination is something we’re desperado to try out!
