Tequila is one of the most popular spirits here in America...But what exactly is its history?
Originating from Mexico...
via: GettyTequila was first produced in the 16th century near the location of 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.
via: GettyWhen 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.
The spirit is made from the fermentation of the sugars found from the blue agave plant once it has been cooked.
Some 80 years later, in around 1600...
Don Cenobio Sauza was the founder of Sauza Tequila and Municipal President of the Village of Tequila from 1884–1885...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.
In 2003, Mexico issued a proposal that would require all Mexican-made tequila be bottled in Mexico before being exported to other countries.The Mexican government said that bottling tequila in Mexico would guarantee its quality.
There's a reason why they call it Mexican water!
via: GettyThe tequila in Mexico is perhaps the best in the world.
And even though the spirit holds a very rich history in its home of Mexico...Here in America, tequila now holds a very lethal reputation.
Tequila shares the same smell as regret...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!
And what's even more fun about tequila?
via: GettyTequila slammers, of course!
Many of us enjoy drinking our tequila with salt and lime...
via: gettyThere's no denying that the addition of these 2 components really takes the edge off... am I right?!
Well, it turns out that a very famous tequila brand is more than aware of this...
Sierra Tequila is one of the most popular brands here in America...

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.

Well, we've all been wrong this entire time.One Twitter user has revealed the true intentions behind the mini sombrero and our minds have well and truly been blown.
The sombrero is actually designed to hold salt...
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.
