A Shot of Tequila….and I don’t mean Tila
Living in the Southwest, and working as a bartender, you gotta know something about tequila. And when I say something, I mean as much as you can stuff into your brain.
It has been the topic of some of many songs:
Tequila Makes her Clothes Fall Off, Joe Nichols
Straight Tequila Night, John Anderson
Ten Rounds with Jose Cuervo, Tracy Byrd
Tequila Sunrise, The Eagles
You and Tequila, Deanna Carter
Hey 19, Steely Dan (mentions Cuervo Gold)
(just to name a few)
Some Trivia: Bing Crosby was such a fan of tequila, he arranged distribution of Herradura into the U.S. Agave, the plant tequila is made from, is a member of the lily family. Paris Hilton and Sammy Hagar’s drink of choice is tequila (hmmm). And at the movies, Chevy Chase drinks a shot of tequila in Caddyshack and The Three Amigos (along with Steve Martin, and Martin Short).
But for those who want to get down to the nitty gritty, tequila has its own internet community appropriately called ForTequilaLovers.com. Created to enhance the love and appreciation of tequila, ForTequilaLover.com is a free community for the Newby and the Conniosseur alike. It is a great place to geek out, ask questions , compare tasting and share recipes with other enthusiasts.
