Tequila is a hell of a drug. Nuff said.

But no really. If you're looking to get messed up, Tequila is a good way to do it. Or ya know like any other alcohol. Tequila has an awful reputation. "Oh I don't drink tequila. I do crazy things." Well that's cause you're drunk. There isn't any scientific evidence of any kind that says different liqours affect you in different ways. It's all ethanol. Tastey, tastey ethanol.

Fact time! Tequila is made of blue agave. Which looks like this:

these things are friggin huge.

Those big middle parts that look like pineapples produce alot of sugar. Making them ideal for alcohol. The plant is harvested around the Tequila city region of Mexico. It is distilled and, depending on how long it is aged in cask, is named a specific type. There are also 100% agave and mixtos, which have other sugars added.

Blanco or Plato is aged less than two months or not at all. Reposado is aged at least 2 months, but less than a year. Anejo is aged for up to 3 years in small barrels, and Extra Anejo is for longer than 3 years.

Patrooonnnnnnn!!!!

The longer it is aged the more smooth and subtle the flavor. Younger tequila is harsher and has more of the raw agave flavor to it. And ya know different companies will jazz em up with spices or other flavors and what have you.

Anyway. Margaritas are awesome. And now this.
