I Switched To Tequila. Here's What Happened...

Wine is my ultimate vice. Red wine in the winter just feels right, so I've never really given any thought to an alternative. Then, my best friend Jess told me she's moving away from wine in the new year, saying that it was starting to make her feel a bit sluggish and she'd reached her wine-limit. Like there can be such a thing as too much?!

Honestly, I didn't believe it and was especially shocked when she told me she switched to tequila. My tequila memories are … not so great. I'm literally convinced some of my wrinkle lines are from grimacing whenever someone handed me a shot (you know that look I'm talking about).

Still, I'm not one to turn down a margarita. But only on special occasions — I'm not a calorie counter but it's hard to ignore when one cocktail is 450 calories. That's like eating two chocolate bars!

Jess told me about 21Seeds, the secret to her new tequila lifestyle. She said it was easy to drink, and it's infused with real fruit so there's actually a delicious taste to look forward to. How could that be possible? Tequila is a party drink in my mind, no way it could be so great in a casual, chilled out setting.

I still wasn't on board but then she told me that it was female-owned and I was convinced to try it. As a woman exploring tequila, I knew my best bet was a brand made by and for the girls.

21Seeds is made with ripe, hand-picked fruits and sticks to all-natural ingredients. I usually get overwhelmed with all the variations of flavored liquor but 21Seeds has 3 infusions: Valencia Orange, Grapefruit Hibiscus, and Cucumber Jalapeño. Each one sounded amazing and it was great not having to decide between 20 different flavors, so I decided to try one to start. I could always give it to Jess if I didn't like it.

I definitely braced myself when I poured my first drink of the Valencia Orange and took a cautious sip, but … WOW. It really tasted delicious, and suddenly I wasn't sipping or shooting back my tequila. I drank it like a glass of fine wine, only better.

I was shocked to find a tequila I could actually drink and enjoy after a long day. Plus, I discovered that with 21Seeds there are so many easy, low sugar cocktails I can make (no bartender needed).

My go-to has become the Seed + Soda, where all I have to do is add club soda, my 21Seeds flavor of choice, and a splash of lime juice — easy, refreshing, and on top of that, lower in calories! Now I can ditch the wine and hard seltzers with this alcohol upgrade.

I'm so happy I gave 21Seeds a chance. It's the perfect end of day or celebratory drink with friends and family. Even my hardcore wine-loving friends will put down the bottle and have a glass of tequila with me now.

21Seeds is available in-stores and online so when I don't have time to make it to the liquor store, I visit their website to order and tackle my to-do list while the bottles are delivered right to my door. I can recommend it to all my friends knowing that it's convenient, all-natural, gluten-free, keto-friendly, and non-GMO. My girls and I deserve high-quality, great-tasting, and accessible alcohol, and 21Seeds really called all the right shots with their tequila.

I thought ditching wine would be the end of the world but I was mistaken. Each night I look forward to my glass of 21Seeds and can't believe I wasn't on the tequila team before (no hangovers either!).

Ladies, don't be afraid to switch it up and try 21Seeds. I promise you won't regret it, just sit back, relax, and actually DRINK tequila!
