Last year in competition I had a mead that placed second. I was bested by a mead that was in part comprised of some form of Agave and very much tasted like Tequila. I am not a sore looser and got the opportunity at the competition after party to taste most of the meads in competition, it was outstanding and beat me hands down on creativity.
The same competitor also entered a Lime/Lemon/Citrus mead and took third with that, obviously a fairly accomplished mead maker. It was also a very good mead but to me it did not stand on its own as well. The real magic was blending his two meads together. The combination made as you might imagine a Margarita Mead and was simply amazing.
I would like to try to recreate something similar but the maker was not at the competition so I could not pick his brain for tips. Anyone have some recipes that would work for my goal? What type/form of Agave would you folks suggest? Anyone worked with Agave for mead and have tips?
