Celebrate National Tequila Day at No Mas!

TequilaBOTTLESTequila, by any other name… no, not quite.  In fact, in order for it to be called Tequila, it must be made in Tequila, Mexico.  IMG_5678The Agave, a succulent plant related to asparagus, is harvested for it’s “piña” core, which is roasted, pressed, the juices fermented, then aged appropriately, depending on the type of Tequila in production: silver, reposado, or añejo.

which is roasted, pressed, and the juices then distilled.  The distilled juice, call “Blanco” or Silver Tequila, may then be aged in various ways, in different types of wood barrels, to produce a wide range of tastes, as Reposados or Añejos, that may be savored and sipped from a snifter, to enjoy all the nuance of flavor.

Tequila Can Help You Lose Weight – ? Really

It’s been reported that Agavins, the natural form of sugar found in the Agave plant (from which Tequila is made) are non-digestible and can act as dietary fiber, so would not raise blood glucose, and may actually reduce glucose levels.
