Milagro is a well-known Mexican tequila that has become a favorite of tequila-drinkers around the world. Milagro offers drinkers five different tequilas, each of which is triple distilled from 100% blue agave, bringing a crisp sweetness to every sip.
Founders Danny and Moy sought to create a tequila that connected the rich Mexican culture to the world of modern tequila. They were disappointed in the tequilas they saw throughout Mexico City in the late 1990s and knew they could create something better. After connecting with Pedro, a master distiller disillusioned with the world of multinational distillers, they started Milagro.
It quickly became popular throughout Mexico City and beyond, known for its clean taste and the sweetness of the blue agave from which it derives.Since its 1997 founding in Mexico, Milagro has become available worldwide.
You can find it in most liquor stores throughout North America, from your local mom-and-pop shop to the larger discount stores. You can also purchase Milagro online on the company’s official website or at other major liquor retailers.

Milagro Buying Guide
With so many options to choose from, buying Milagro can present a challenge to the unfamiliar. We will break down the different options so that you can decide which will best fit your needs.
Milagro offers two variations of each type of tequila. While both are the same alcohol content (40%/80 proof), each variation is aged for different amounts of time and has slightly different flavors.
Milagro Silver is a bright, clear tequila described by Milagro as crisp with vegetal and citrus notes. It is the least expensive option that Milagro offers. It is un-aged.
Milagro Barrel Reserve Silver is a Blanco option aged for 45 days in American and French oak barrels. It has a similar crisp taste to the Milagro Silver, but with additional hints of vanilla and a spicy finish. The Barrel Reserve Silver is unusual for a silver tequila, which traditionally is unaged.
Milagro Reposado is a slightly more expensive option than the Silver, aged 2-4 months and tasting somewhat like caramel. This tequila is a good option for mixed drinks, such as margaritas, due to the amount of time that it spends aging.
Milagro Barrel Reserve Reposado has been aged longer, usually from 4-6 months. It has a clean, vanilla taste, with white pepper and cinnamon spices. The Barrel Reserve Reposado is a higher-end option for those who prefer a reposado but will certainly not break the bank.
The Milagro Anejo is a pale amber tequila aged from 12-14 months. This smooth option brings a variety of flavors, notably caramel, coconut, and toasted oak. You will also taste hints of chocolate, tobacco, and even tropical fruit notes.
The Barrel Reserve Anejo is the most expensive of Milagro’s basic tequilas. It is aged 18-24 months, giving it a full-bodied taste that is more refined than its counterparts. It maintains the flavors of the Milagro Anejo, with an additional hint of vanilla.
The Milagro Romance is harder to find in stores but offers an unusual tequila experience. The bottle consists of an external and internal chamber, each with its own neck. The outer space contains Milagro Reposado, while the three inner sections contain the Select Barrel Reserve Anejo.
We recommend this unique choice if you are looking for an option that satisfies multiple tastes or for an interesting talking piece at your table.
The Milagro Unico II is Milagro’s high-end option, bringing tastes of caramel, vanilla, and black pepper. It is a Joven blend, meaning that it consists of their Milagro Silver blended with the Barrel Aged Reposado and Anejo reserves, resulting in a long warm finish to the drink. The Unico II is a good option for anyone looking for a less-common Joven tequila or something a little more expensive.
The Best Way(s) to Drink Milagro Tequila
You can drink tequila in many ways, but which is best suited for Milagro? Milagro is a versatile tequila – You can drink it neat or in various cocktails to suit your tastes.
If you want to enjoy your Milagro tequila like the locals, drink it chilled and neat, without adding salt or lime. Tequila is stored in the refrigerator in most of Mexico, keeping it cooled to the perfect temperature. Skip the salt and lime so that you can enjoy the tastes of Milagro, whether that be the crisp citrus of the Silver or the caramel vanilla of the Unico II.
If a neat drink isn’t for you, enjoy your Milagro in one of these three cocktails listed on Milagro’s official website. We have a delicious cocktail for whichever Milagro you have on hand.
3) Milagro Silver: Margarita
Combine two parts Milagro Silver, one part lime juice, and ¾ part Agave Nectar into a shaker, and strain over ice. Garnish your margarita with a lime wheel. Don’t have any agave nectar? That’s okay. Just substitute Simple Syrup.
4) Milagro Reposado: Veracruzana
Muddle four chunks of pineapple and two basil leaves together in a shaker. Add two parts Milagro Reposado, ¾ parts agave nectar, and 1 part fresh lime juice. Shake it up and strain it into a glass with ice. Garnish with additional pineapple and basil. As with the Margarita, substitute Simple Syrup for agave nectar if you do not have any handy.
5) Milagro Anejo: The Allstar
Add two parts Milagro Anejo, one part Italian Amaro, ½ part allspice dram, and 1-2 dashes of Aztec chocolate bitters to a mixing glass with ice. Mix until it is well-chilled. Strain the mixture into a martini glass with ice and garnish with a flamed orange peel.
5 Best Things to Mix with Milagro Tequila
- Grapefruit: Choose a grapefruit soda or juice to highlight the vegetal flavors in Milagro silver.
- Tonic: Keep it simple and tart by adding tonic water to your tequila.
- Lemonade: Lemon naturally suits Milagro and other tequilas and will result in a sweet and delicious mixed drink.
- Pineapple: Add pineapple juice or wedges to turn your tequila into a sweet, tropical drink.
- Dark Soda: Some tequila lovers swear that dark sodas such as Coke, Pepsi, or even Dr. Pepper mix well with Milagro Silver. Be warned, however, that more traditional tequila drinkers might be highly suspicious of this potential pairing. It is up to you to decide!
Tequila Alternatives to Milagro Tequila
If you do not have Milagro on hand, we can offer you some alternative tequilas, listed in order from least to most expensive.
- Casamigos ($49.99-$54.99): Casamigos offers a quality tequila that is more expensive than Milagro but still slightly less expensive than Patron. A newer option in the tequila industry, Casamigos offers smooth options of Blanco, Reposado, and Anejo tequilas.
- Patron ($21.99-$499.99): Patron is a higher-end alternative to Milagro. While both are excellent choices, Patron’s long history and prestigious reputation make it more expensive than Milagro. Patron offers more options than Casamigos and Milagro, notably top-shelf options such as the Gran Patron Burdeos. Neither Milagro nor Casamigos provides a counterpart to this costly bottle.
