I know it's been ages since I did a Friday Follies and Fun Facts. You Smackers have missed me imparting useless knowledge upon you haven't you? Haven't you?
*a rousing Yes! from the crowd erupts with applause*
Well, I thought I would start your weekends off with some fun libation facts. Sounds like a fabulous idea no? That's what I thought you bunch of lushes. I know that I have already covered this topic in FFF Friday before, but there is never a lack of info in the mind of the Think Tank Master. Oh know! (I got my pun on today too!) If you want to visit the original you can find it here.
Now...on to the facts. Just the facts ma'am. <---killing myself with the punny today
1.) Tequila does NOT have a worm. It is in fact Mezcal or Mescal(Americans) which contains a "worm". Actually, it isn't even a worm. It's the larval form of the Hypopta Agavis that is found living on the maguey plants which Mezcal is made from, which is a form of agave plant. Some Mezcal is made from only maguey, and other is a mix of agave and maguey. Tequila started out as a higher grade version of Mezcal. Kinda like Cognac is to Brandy.
2.) Since we just celebrated Independence Day, it is noteworthy to mention, Thomas Jefferson wrote the first draft of Declaration of Independence in a tavern. John Hancock, who signed the final document first was an alcohol dealer. Among the most notable of the signers were a bar tender, a whiskey distiller, a vineyard owner and a brewer.
3.) MODERATE consumption of alcohol does not destroy brain cells, in fact, it is often associated with improved cognitive function.
