Feel beautiful and vibrant when you recognize National Vitamin C Day today, April 4th! Tequila & Lime counts!
Of course, Vitamin C is known for its healing properties and when you’re sick, “Plenty of liquids” is a well-known remedy for getting well. But expanding that definition to include a kicked-up shot of tequila makes a day laid out on the couch sound much more appealing. In the 1930s, doctors in Mexico recommended the following concoction to fight off a cold.
.5 ounce of tequila blanco
.5 ounce of agave nectar (to eliminate bacteria and soothe sore throats)
.5 ounce of fresh lime juice (for Vitamin C)
Though some people (including tequila companies) swear by its healing powers, others say it's hogwash. We like to think that the above combination is a cure-all.
Trivia buffs should know that the only mammals that can’t make vitamin C in their bodies are primates, guinea pigs, fruit bats and humans. Somehow, during evolution, we lost one of four vital enzymes needed to produce it. This means we have to get vitamin C from elsewhere.
The slice of lemon, lime or orange in your cocktail is a good start!
Come to Bacchus today for $5 tequila shots and RuPaul’s Drag Race at 6PM.
