An Introduction to Tequila Rose
A Deliciously Sweet Liqueur
Sweet, fruity, and a whole lot of fun! Tequila Rose is a brand of tequila that specializes in one thing, and one thing only: strawberry cream liqueur. This Mexican-imported cream liqueur mixed with tequila tastes more like a refreshing milkshake than it does a spirit, which is why it’s the perfect option for those introducing themselves to tequila in general.
A product from the McCormick Distilling Company, Tequila Rose also comes in java, chocolate, and hot rose flavors. The Tequila Rose line was introduced to make it easier to come up with more creative cocktails. It’s targeted towards a younger crowd, specifically young women, who are looking for a sweeter alternative to plain tequila.
Tequila Rose was developed to give consumers an alternative other cream liqueurs like Baileys. It can be served by itself as a wonderfully smooth shot, or mixed with a variety of other ingredients to make fantastically fruity cocktails.

Price Compared to Other Tequila Brands
A bottle of premium Don Julio Blanco Tequila can cost anywhere between $41.99-45.99, which is roughly the same price as a high-end bottle of 1.75L of Tequila Rose Strawberry Cream. Because of Don Julio’s premium brand status, they’re prices tend to be a lot more expensive than anything Tequila Rose has to offer. One of the more expensive bottles of Don Julio, Don Julio Real Tequila, retails from between $399.99 - $419.99, which stands in stark contrast to Tequila Rose’s liqueur line.
A bottle of Avion Silver (750ml) typically sells for double a standard 750ml bottle of Tequila Rose, ranging between $34.99 - $38.99. Avion’s most expensive bottle of tequila, Avion Reserva 44, ranges between $129.99 - $149.99. The high price is largely due to the fact that this particular bottle of tequila is aged for a much longer period, and a great deal of care goes into the drink’s distillation. Tequila Rose, on the other hand, is more of a specialty drink that is prepared in a completely different way.
Jose Cuervo is a tequila brand that offers spirits at very reasonable prices that don’t break their buyer’s wallets. A bottle of Jose Cuervo Especial Silver (750ml) can typically be bought for less than $20, which is very comparable to most of Tequila Rose’s spirits. Jose Cuervo’s most expensive bottle, Jose Cuervo Reserva de la Familia, ranges between $129.99 - $199.99.
As a premium tequila distiller, Patron’s cheapest bottle can retail between $21.99 - $23.99, comparable to Tequila Rose’s 750ml and 1L bottles. Patron’s prices only climb from there, with their most expensive bottle, the Gran Patron Burdeo, ranging anywhere between $419.99 - $499.99. With great taste and prestige comes high retail prices.
Hornitos, much like Jose Cuervo, is a brand of tequila that has set very reasonable prices. As such, Hornitos’ price range is very similar to those offered by Tequila Rose and their specialty liqueur. Hornitos Plata (375ml), can range in price between $12.99 - $19.99. Their most expensive bottle, Hornitos Anejo (750ml) can usually be bought between $25.99 - $35.99.
