According to Mark Twain, “Civilization is a limitless multiplication of unnecessary necessities.” If that is true, I would like to add another unnecessary necessity to your own idea of civilization – tequila. Yes, many of your friends may be into wine and all that goes along with it, but I want to take the briefest of moments to extol the virtues of the virtually unknown elixir.

There were between 850 and 900 registered brands of tequila in 2007. When you add in the rare brands hidden aware in people’s personal cellars, there are over 1,000 brands available. will bring you up to speed, if you’re so interested. The pleasures of tequila have not yet reached the hipsters in Brooklyn, NY, so you’re safe for a while from the accusation of being trendy if you get caught up in this little world. I’d write more about it, but there’s a glass of 100% Blue Agave with my name written all over it.
