Everything You Need to Know About Tequila

For all of my legal drinking years (I won’t say how long because it’ll make me feel old), I have never seen a word have such a visceral reaction from people. You can probably guess by the title of this blog the word I am talking about. 

You guessed it — It’s all about Tequila. People either absolutely love this bold flavor of the liquor, or they hate it, and I find there is very little in between. Personally, I am a huge fan of this delectable beverage, so when given the opportunity to write about one of my favorite spirits, how could I pass it up? But, with that being said, I took a lot of time to really dig into the history, the culture, and the ups and downs of this particular beverage. I’ve gotta tell you, I was quite surprised to find new information I didn’t know. With that being said, grab your Margarita, (no salt for me, thanks), and let’s talk about my go-to liquor, Tequila.

The Secret to a Cool Summer – Frozen Cocktails for Adults

As a child, the start of summer always meant one thing: frozen ice pops! Now that I’m an adult, my love for sweet chilly treats hasn’t changed much, save for one small detail… alcohol.  Whether on the beach or in your own backyard, I’ve found that the best way to beat the summer swelter are frozen cocktails melting in your hand. That first whir of the blender is the classic sound of laid-back days in the sun and fun-filled nights with friends and family. 

But, we didn’t always have ice and blenders, you know. Prior to the 1800s, liquor was typically served tepid. Europeans believed that the warmth of the drink would draw the heat from our bodies and make us cool. However, in 1806, Boston businessman Frederic ‘The Ice King’ Tudor had his own ideas. He concocted the brilliant plan to ship the ice from Massachusetts lakes and rivers to warmer climates, like the Caribbean. Thus, the frozen drink was born.

The first slushy drink was called “The Smash”. A simpler take on the Mint Julep, it incorporates sugar, water, bourbon, and fresh mint served over crushed ice. After making its appearance in the mid-1830s, it peaked in popularity between the 1840s and 1860s. That’s when America’s obsession with frozen cocktails really took off.
