It’s National Tequila Day!

It’s that time of the year as we celebrate National Tequila day. Made from the blue agave plant, tequila has a deep and storied history. Named after the small town of Tequila in the state of Jalisco Mexico, the spirit was first know as mescal wine around the time the conquistadors came to the Americas.

Today tequila is very popular with many well known brands but the first licensed manufacture was Jose Antonia Cuervo. While many enjoy cocktails such as the margarita, tequila sunrise, and mojito, sipping a fine tequila has become popular. The different categories of tequila include:

Blanco, tequila which is unnamed or has been aged for less then two months.

Gold, tequila which is usages silver tequila that is flavored with either caramel or sugar-derived syrups.

Reposado, tequila which has been aged for a minimum of two months but less then 1 year in oak barrels.

Añejo, tequila which has been aged for at least 1 year but less then 3 years in oak barrels.

Extra añejo, tequila which has been aged at least 3 years.

Regardless if you sip or mix tequila there will be lots of places with tequila drink specials for you to enjoy. So go out to your local Mexican bar and or restaurant and enjoy this blue agave spirit.
