You don’t have to be drunk for liquor pronunciation to be tricky. With wines, spirits, beer, and liqueurs from all over the world showing becoming more popular, you have to know a million different languages to keep from sounding like a square when you order drink. The desire to sound like you know what you’re talking about when you’re out for drinks can discourage us from trying something new. I’ve had my fair share of waiters and bartenders that smirked at my honest attempts to take a guess at an unusual drink name.
1. Why do we drink tequila with salt and lime?
In 1930, Northern Mexico was hit hard with an epidemic of Spanish influenza. Doctors at the time believed that tequila was the best remedy to fight the disease. They prescribed it with luime and salt, and with that, a tradition was born.
2. Contrary to popular belief, a worm is NEVER present in a bottle of tequila.
So you’re new to craft beer. After hearing how great it is from friends, neighbors, relatives and internet strangers, you’ve decided to take the plunge and surround yourself with a deluge of, brands, beer styles and flavors. Your thirst (pun intended) for knowledge has brought you to this glorious site and upon this little musing.
I like your style.
