It’s National Tequila Day!
It’s time to enjoy the liquor that is made from the agave cactus and native to Mexico. Tequila was first produced in the 16th century when Spanish conquistadors in Mexico ran out of the brandy they brought with them and started to distill the agave to make a new sort of liquor. Looks like tequila’s always been the go-to beverage to keep the party going.
OMG-ran out of BRANDY???????????? So I think the conquistador’s were a bunch of 18 year old dudes who were desperate for a drink and looked at that cactus and thought, “Hmmm, what if we boil this thing down and drink this agave crap–it’s sweet and it will help us rape and pillage villages whilst drunk!”
And the worm. Where did that little thing come from. You know, only good tequila has a worm in the bottom of the bottle. Legend has it if you finish the bottle you are supposed to eat the worm. Good luck with that. Since it has been soaking in tequila for some time I think it makes you dance really funny, wear your bra or jockeys on your head, and quote Shakespeare. Just sayin…
The only way to drink tequila is to put it in a shot glass and down it really quick. And chase it with a beer or something else like, I don’t know, a B52? Has milk in that one. I know my shots.
Have you tried an upside down margarita? If you have, I commend you. If not, it goes kid of like this–lie back on the bar with your face up, open your mouth, have studly bartender mix tequila, triple sec and margarita mix in your mouth, then you stand up really quick and drink it really fast. Yep, you will be naked and singing with the band in no time.
This is a required graduation test for most college kids…..Then go get a tattoo-tell them the mermaid sent you!
