Think of Tequila and this song pops into the head. Okay, many other unpleasant and nasty things also pops into the head when thinking of Tequila. Who hasn't been abused by tequila?!

The town of Tequila is about 75km away from Guadalajara. It's a cool one day trip and get back late the afternoon on a very happy mood on a bus with other very happy cheerful folke. Well, some passed out in the bus on the way back.
So let me say this, all those times Tequila abused me and left me violated, sick and insecure. Apparently it was the rubbish Tequila's fault. You have to look for 100% Agave
White or Silver ("Blanco" or "Plata")

Gold ("Oro"), "Joven" (Young), or "Joven Abocado" (young and smoothed)
3. " Reposado" (Rested)
4. " Añejo" (Vintage or Extra Aged)
5. " Extra Añejo" (Ultra Aged)
6. " Reserva de Casa" and "Reserva de la Familia"

And there is a reason they say 1 Tequila, 2 Tequila, 3 Tequila, floor..... it is a fact 99% of people will hit the floor on 4  :biggrin:

@doubleoseven first one.

Tequila lesson from From Wiki:
Tequila (Spanish  [teˈkila] (help·info)) is a regional specific name for a distilled beverage made from the blue agave plant, primarily in the area surrounding the city of Tequila, 65 km (40 mi) northwest of Guadalajara, and in the highlands (Los Altos) of the central western Mexican state of Jalisco. Although tequila is similar to mezcal, modern tequila differs somewhat in the method of its production, in the use of only blue agave plants, as well as in its regional specificity.

The red volcanic soil in the surrounding region is particularly well suited to the growing of the blue agave, and more than 300 million of the plants are harvested there each year.[1] Agave tequila grows differently depending on the region. Blue agaves grown in the highlands Los Altos region are larger in size and sweeter in aroma and taste. Agaves harvested in the lowlands, on the other hand, have a more herbaceous fragrance and flavor.[2]

Mexican laws state that tequila can only be produced in the state of Jalisco and limited municipalities in the states ofGuanajuato, Michoacán, Nayarit, and Tamaulipas.[3] Tequila is recognized as a Mexican designation of origin product in more than 40 countries.[4] It is protected through NAFTA in Canada and the United States,[5] through bilateral agreements with individual countries such as Japan and Israel,[5] and has been a protected designation of origin product in the constituent countries of the European Union since 1997.[5]

Tequila is most often made at a 38% alcohol content (76 U.S. proof) for domestic consumption, but can be produced between 31 and 55% alcohol content (62 and 110 U.S. proof). Per U.S law, tequila must contain at least 40% alcohol (80 U.S. proof) to be sold in the United States. a[6]

Can't remember but she said 5kg-7kg makes 1L of Tequila.
