Today,July 24, is tequila day!
Tequila was first produced in the 16th century near the city of Tequila, which was not officially established until 1666. A fermented beverage from the agave plant known as pulque was consumed in pre-Columbian central Mexico before European contact. When the Spanish conquistadors ran out of their own brandy, they began to distill agave to produce one of North America’s first indigenous distilled spirits. (Wikipedia)
And no, tequila is not consumed in shots: in Mexico, the most traditional way to drink tequila is neat, without lime and salt. The higher-quality, 100% agave tequilas are usually sipped from a snifter glass rather than a shot glass, and savoured instead of quickly gulped.
