Well, anyone and everyone who has had Tequila shots has definitely heard this line! 🙂

I had my first round of Tequila shots about a year back! I had gone to the famously renamed ‘Not Just Pizza By the Bay‘ with a friend with the sole intention of having shots. And yes, that place serves a mean shot. (For 450 plus taxes/shot, they better; eh?! 😀 ) It gave me quite a heady buzz (My friend will strongly deny it though, he claims I wasn’t drunk enough! 😀 ) and I have a brilliant start to a lovely evening! 😀

Since that evening, I have had many more tequila filled evenings. (One particular one with 4 shots was particularly wobbly! 😀 ) However, I have always been plagued by the entire process of how this drink is made and bottled. (One TV show about Tequila and the worm is still quite fresh in my head! *bleh*) The good news is that no, they don’t use worms to make Tequila. *thank god* (Even if they do, I refuse to believe so!! 😀 Problem solved :P) I found this really kickass infographic online – Go ahead have a peek!

Another thing I love about this drink is it’s versatility. The damned thing can be used for cooking. It lends a distinctive and characteristic bold flavor to the dish. I remember having a ‘Prawn in Tequila Orange Sauce’ in a restaurant on a night out. It was one of the most yummy things I had eaten in a long time. (Will try to find a recipe for this!)

I also found this kickass looking shrimp nacho and tequila shot that I definitely want to try!

Doesn’t it look wayyy too sinful?! (Damn!)

Another recipe that is definitely happening is Strawberry Tequila Jello Shots! (If I can’t make this at home, I am definitely going to find a bar which serves this! This looks way too tasty to miss! 😉 )

Monday does look sinful with those strawberries! This is definitely happening on my birthday this year! *grin* (Am using Tequila for this one! Don’t care what the recipe says! Hehehe.)

We have a lot more interesting things lined up, so keep tuned, we’ll see you soon. And have a great week ahead! 🙂 And you better kick Monday’s ass! 😀

I was asked, what do you want to be when you grow up? As a kid I answered that I wanted to be a good person. It was only recently that I realized that all I want to do, is eat good food. And make good food, since; for me, and I quote George Bernard Shaw - "There is no love sincerer, than the love of food."
