The Sparkle Donkey not only has a ridiculous name, it also has a fairly absurd origin story. That’s right, tequilas have origin stories.
I rarely expect much from an overly clever name or bottle. While I hate speaking ill of any brand, you may hate my favorite and I may hate yours, Jazz vodka and their fancy trumpet bottle is the worst liquor I can recall trying. It was years ago, but it created an anti-novelty bias that I just can’t seem to shake. Thankfully both the silver and reposado Sparkle Donkey are both highly rated by Beverage Testing Institute. They are far more trustworthy than my preconceived notions so I will definitely be trying this if I see it.
