Know your tequila
How much do you really know about this lively spirit? Tequila is distilled from the sugar-rich juice of the blue agave—a spikey plant harvested in the Mexican state of Jalisco. By law, tequila can only be produced in just five Mexican states (so enjoy every sip). Your first rule of thumb: Buy a bottle with a “100% agave" label for the best quality & taste. Now grab a lime & find the right tequila for your next get-together.
