It's still freezing back east with no sign of spring ahead. That means one thing: all of us gathering at our favorite watering hall at happy hour and/or on the weekends to stay warm with our favorite beverage. My drink of choice is tequila. It hasn't mistreated me the same way vodka, gin (barf) or even the brown stuff has.
I can't help but take notice of the influx of recent articles documenting the health benefits of tequila. That's great news! Not only are experts hailing it as the "healthiest" liquor, but it aids in digestion, lowers bad cholesterol, helps with depression, lowers blood glucose levels, and since the agavins don't enter the blood stream, it can help you feel full longer. And as an added bonus, if you eat the worm at the bottom of the mezcal bottle, you've just added protein!
Buzzfeed recently came out with a list of 24 "glorious" ways to drink tequila. I want to try EVERY recipe in this article, from the sparkling champagne margarita, tequila mojitos, to the spicy tequila cocktails there is something in this article for everyone, even the beer drinker!
Here's the link to the recipes.
