Grab some salt and lime because it’s National Tequila Day.

National Tequila Day celebrates the distilled alcoholic beverage made from the blue agave plant, which is also the main alcohol used in a margarita.

The plant only grows in the rich and sandy soil of Mexico at altitudes higher than 1,500 meters.

To make tequila, the heart of the plant is removed and heated to extract sap. The sap is fermented and distilled into tequila.

According to history, the Aztecs created fermented beverages from the agave plant prior to the arrival of the Spaniards in 1521.

By the way, if your bottle has a worm in it, it’s not tequila! Worms are only found in a similar spirit called Mezcal.

National Tequila Day began to emerge around the late 1990s and now July 24 is dubbed the official holiday of tequila.
