On any given night, you will find some dumb ass at a bar acting cool and downing a shot of their favorite cheap tequila. What’s even sadder, is that you find American born Mexican’s doing the same thing. Before you get your chones up in a bunch, I was guilty of chugging tequila as well. It’s time you start drinking tequila, the right way.
One night on Christmas Eve, my uncle from Mexico saw me down a shot. He came up to me and said: “That’s not the way you drink tequila.” I was a little surprised because that was the only way I knew. In Mexico, you sip on tequila. Never down it like a 21-year-old college kid. And, depending on the brand, if you add ice, it can have a great taste.
Since that time, I never downed a shot again. Today, I enjoy tequila with ice and sip on it like I do my whiskey. That was the best lesson I ever learned about drinking tequila.
Now that you know the proper way of consuming tequila, please don’t chug it down because you think you’re cool. I’m here to tell you, you’re not cool. In fact, if you drink it the right way; you will look sophisticated, knowledgeable, and yes, even cool.
My favorite tequilas are Herradura Ultra Anejo Tequila and Cabo Wabo.
What’s your favorite tequila? Is there one you recommend I drink? Please don’t say, Jose Cuervo, I will judge you.
