Tequila is one of the first distilled spirits to truly originate in North America, having been birthed from a pre-Columbian fermented drink called pulque. Produced from blue agave, a succulent plant with razor sharp spines, the tequila making process has changed little since the first distillation. Tequila generally comes in four varieties, plata or blanco, reposado, añejo, and extra añejo. These distinctions depend on the aging period. In Mexico, tequila is traditionally consumed neat, but the list of cocktails that use tequila is nearly endless! The flavor profiles of tequila can vary greatly depending on the agave it’s produced from so you’ll never experience the same taste again.
