National Tequila Day 24th July:

Happy National Tequila Day. Fancy a tipple later? Tequila is typically consumed neat, as a shot or sipped slowly, but it is also used as a mixer in a variety of cocktails, such as margaritas and tequila sunrises. One of my favourite drinks when I go on holiday.

So what is Tequila made from? The blue agave plant, which is mostly grown in the area around Tequila, in the state of Jalisco, Mexico, is used to make tequila, a distilled alcohol. Although many high-end tequilas are manufactured with 100% blue agave, the spirit must be made with at least 51% blue agave to be considered tequila.

The blue agave plants, which can take up to 10 years to reach maturity, are harvested and then roasted in an oven to transform the complex carbs into simple sugars. The crushed, fermented, and distilled juice of the crushed, roasted agave is used to make tequila.
