People have been left completely shocked after realizing the true purpose of the miniature sombrero that comes with bottles of Sierra Tequila…

We can guarantee that a lot of you will have your hands raised right now.

But what exactly is its history?

Tequila was first produced in the 16th century near the location of the city of Tequila, which was not officially established until 1666.

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.

Through the fermentation process, many factors influence the higher alcohol content of tequila, which are molecules such as isobutyl alcohol and isoamyl alcohol and ethanol.

Don Pedro S├ínchez de Tagle, the Marquis of Altamira, began mass-producing tequila at the first factory in the territory of modern-day Jalisco. By 1608, the colonial governor of Nueva Galicia had begun to tax his products. Spain’s King Carlos IV granted the Cuervo family the first license to commercially make tequila.

And he was the first to export tequila to the United States. He also shortened the name from “Tequila Extract” to just “Tequila” for the American markets – introducing the tequila that we know and love today.

The Mexican government said that bottling tequila in Mexico would guarantee its quality.

The tequila in Mexico is perhaps the best in the world.

Here in America, tequila now holds a very lethal reputation.

There have been so many hilarious (and terrifying) stories after drinking too much tequila… and it’s safe to say that a lot of us can relate to making a few silly mistakes after one too many tequilas!

Tequila slammers, of course!

There’s no denying that the addition of these 2 components really takes the edge off… am I right?!

And they’ve been well equipped for salt and lime combination without us even realizing!

And we all love Sierra for its amazing taste and, most importantly, the mini sombrero that comes with each bottle.

It is the cutest thing…

And the majority of us have been under the impression that the mini sombrero is there to simply be worn by us drunk people or our unimpressed pets.

One Twitter user has revealed the true intentions behind the mini sombrero and our minds have well and truly been blown.

And it has been shaped so a shot glass can be dipped in to create a perfect salt-rim for a shot of tequila. Amazing.

The sombrero can also be used to juice limes. Margarita, anyone?
