Hola Tequila celebrates the Mexican distilled spirit. The book includes information about the history, production, and culture of tequila and the now wildly popular high-end tequila that is imbibed more as a sipping drink, similar to Cognac. There is a misnomer that tequila is reserved for the margarita cocktail and tequila shots; however the spirit is far more versatile and can be paired with flavors that are not commonly thought of. Hola Tequila will include information on tequila's its history and culture, stocking the tequila bar, 75 cocktail recipes developed by the author, the pros and cons of using a margarita mix vs. fresh mix. Plus sidebars on appellations of origin, reading a tequila label, tequilla flights, world records and significant achievements involving tequila.
