Tequila is a type of alcoholic drink from the city of Tequila in Mexico. The drink is primarily made from the blue agave plant. They generally contain between 38-55% alcohol content and a no less than 51% sugars.
Tequila comes in a number of colours, ranging from a simple clear to dark amber brown. This is dependent on the ageing process, usually lasting between two months and three years, and the type of wood used for storage. White/silver tequila, such as the Jose Cuervo Silver, is a product of a short ageing process. Gold tequila, on the other hand, is silver tequila with the addition of grain alcohols and caramel colour. Some higher end, however, may be a blend of silver and reposado.
Just like it’s done in Mexico, the best way to serve Tequila is neat as a shot with some salt and lime.
