Illustrated with Mexican-style linoleum cuts, this funky little celebration of tequila offers 35 authentic recipes for tequila drinks, dishes using tequila as an ingredient, and meals to serve with tequila. Including a wealth of anecdotes and information on the liquor's history and origins, this lively, thorough cookbook provides all you need to become an instant aficionado of tequila in its many moods.
