Lola again, amigos.
I just had to mention this: as much as I loooove tequila, there’s another beverage out there that’s giving it a run for its money. It’s called sotol. I had the pleasure of tasting a particular brand, Hacienda de Chihuahua, about a year ago on a cold night by a bonfire on a ranch somewhere in the Great Plains (hello, Mr. Wild Horse Man). The drink was pretty amazing. If I would’ve had four hooves and a tail I might have had more to say about the guy, but that’s neither here nor there. Anywayyyyy… It’s not made from the agave plant, it’s distilled from something called the daisylirion (agavaceas)—a family member. Straight up, no frills. Smooth as seda.
Just thought I’d add that to the mix. In my opinion, it’s certainly worth the price of admission.
