Tequila is one of the world’s most beloved alcoholic drinks. It boasts an intriguing production process and a captivating history.
Distilled from agave plants (pronounced ‘uh-gah-Vee’) native to Mexico, this alcohol is produced through an advanced fermentation process that transforms starch in pinas into sugars used for making alcohol.
Agave tequilas have lower calories and carbohydrates than other varieties, making them a great option for those watching their weight or trying to stay healthy.
Tequila may not have the same negative health consequences as other alcoholic drinks, but it’s still not recommended to drink in excess. Women should limit their drinking to no more than one drink a day and men no more than two per day.

3. Lime Juice
Lime Juice is an invaluable ingredient to use in many drinks and recipes, often replacing lemon juice.
Fresh lime juice is superior to bottled, as it has more flavor and nutrients. Enjoy it straight up or add it into cocktails for a refreshing twist.
Tangy citrus fruit are packed with antioxidants that protect the body against free radicals that may lead to cancer, heart disease and diabetes. Furthermore, they assist in weight loss efforts.
Cointreau is an orange liqueur commonly used in classic cocktails. Its light, sweet and perfume flavor complements other ingredients perfectly, providing depth and complexity to drinks.
On its own, champagne can be enjoyed as an aperitif or digestif. It makes a fantastic addition to cocktails such as margaritas, Cosmopolitans, and white Russians.
Cointreau is more expensive and has a stronger flavor than Triple Sec, but it’s the better option for most recipes that call for it. On a budget? You can still use Triple Sec; just add some sugar or lemon juice to help the mix in with other ingredients.
