Spring is in the air and it’s time to shake things up! As a bartender, I love experimenting with new drinks and flavors, especially when the weather starts to warm up.
And what better way to welcome the season than with tequila cocktails? Tequila is a versatile spirit that can be mixed with a variety of ingredients to create unique and refreshing drinks.
Tequila has a rich history that dates back to ancient times, where it was first produced by the Aztecs. Today, it’s one of the most popular spirits in the world, known for its distinctive flavor and smooth finish.
Tequila is made from the blue agave plant, which is grown in the volcanic soil of Mexico. The plant is harvested and roasted to extract its sweet nectar, which is fermented and distilled to create tequila.
Tequila is often associated with margaritas, but there’s so much more you can do with this versatile spirit. Spring is the perfect time to experiment with new flavors and ingredients, and tequila is the perfect base for creating delicious and refreshing cocktails.
