What's the 411?

Here’s the 411:


Thursdays at Bacchus:
$5 Tequila & RuPaul

Tequila is the best spirit. If you already knew that then congratulations, you’re ahead! If you’re shaking your head right now, you probably only associate tequila with bad memories or shots preceded by salt, followed with a lime.

1000 years ago, the Mesoamericans drank pulque, an alcoholic drink made from the fermented sap of the agave plant. It was a sacred drink, only to be ingested by certain classes of people.

When the conquistadors arrived and ran out of liquor, they built on the concept of pulque and began using the agave plant to make what we now know as tequila.

Tequila, therefore, was one of North America’s first domestic spirits.

In addition to that trivial tidbit that indicates the superiority of tequila, it also has health benefits. We’ve mentioned these before. To summarize:

  • tequila does not raise blood sugar because agave is non-digestible.

  • blanco tequilas contain minimal congeners (a contributing factor in hangovers)

We have a winner! $5 Tequila is the Thursday drink special at Bacchus.

Speaking of winners: Join us for RuPaul’s Drag Race at 6PM tonight.
