Tequila

Tequila has been around for a looooong (like really long) time. In fact, the Aztec Indians made it in 250 AD already. At the time, it was the agave-based equivalent of a ceremonial wine, which they used to bring tribute to the goddess Mayahuel, and her husband Patecatl.

These days popular tequila brands like Espolòn and Cabo Wabo are still raised in celebratory toasts around the globe, and also form the backbone of countless gorgeous cocktails. From the classic Lime Margarita to the prettily pink Paloma and always-impressive Long Island Iced Tea, there is a tequila-based cocktail to clink on just about every occasion. Which will be your favorite?
