Tequila 101: A Basic Primer

Jul 24 2014 - 4:25am

From margaritas to body shots, tequila has played an unforgettable role in America's drinking history. But let's face it: how much do you really know about this spirit? I'll be the first one to admit: I knew nada.

Thankfully, Ryan Fitzgerald, tequila expert and bar manager at Beretta [1], led me through a crash course on tequila, complete with flight tastings and all. Two hours later, I felt equipped with all the knowledge I needed to dive right into tequila appreciation: where it comes from, the way it's made, and how to taste it.

Do you consider yourself as well-educated about tequila as you are other spirits?
