80th Anniversary of Prohibition’s Repeal

Today we celebrate the 80th anniversary of Prohibition’s repeal.

Prohibition was the period in United States history in which the manufacture, sale, and transportation of intoxicating liquors was outlawed. It was a time characterized by speakeasies, glamor, and gangsters and a period of time in which even the average citizen broke the law.*

December 5, 1933 changed history. The 21st Amendment repealed the 18th Amendment, making alcohol once again legal. This was the first and only time in U.S. history that an Amendment has been repealed.*

This calls for a celebration! Salud!

Tequila 101

Nineteen days until my Project G comes to life at the fine pub and eatery, Taco Guild. Because I love tequila, I want all of my friends at Taco Guild to experience the fruit of the agave with me. But first, allow me to share a bit of knowledge gained throughout my tequila connoisseur pursuits.

1. Tequila is made from the blue agave plant, primarily in the area surrounding the city of Jalisco, Mexico including: Guanajuato, Michoacán, Nayarit, and Tamaulipas.

2. Blue agave plants grow particularly well in the blue volcanic soil surrounding this region.

3. Agave plants take 8-12 years to mature.

4. Tequila is classified in two categories –

  • 100% agave. These top-notch tequilas are made entirely from the fermented juice of agave. Meaning all alcohol is a direct result of the fermentation of the agave and only the agave, no supplements are added. The end result is better, smoother tasting tequila.
  • Mixto. As the name implies, these tequilas are a mixture of at least 51% fermented agave juice and fermented sugarcane. Mixto offers a less expensive approach to tequila making, but can compromise flavor and contribute to undesirable hangovers.

5. Tequila was originally used in religious ceremonies and for medicinal purposes. In fact, doctors prescribed tequila to ailing patients during Mexico’s 1918 flu epidemic.

6. Contrary to popular practice, tequila should be sipped slowly, not shot. The intention is to enjoy the fine flavors as they cross your palate.

Take time to enjoy the rich history and smooth flavors of fine tequila. More importantly, sip slowly and drink responsibly.
