Tequila cocktails have a kind of polarizing effect; most people either love it or they hate it. Tequila is made from Agave. The kind of agave needed to create amazing tequila can only be grown in one part of the world: Mexico! That simple fact alone makes tequila very similar to wine in my opinion. Some people may not know it yet, but tequila is their favorite drink!
