Tomorrow is National Tequila Day!

Did you hear? Tomorrow is National Tequila Day, and we can’t wait to celebrate! One of our signature choices, tequila is something we celebrate everyday here at Macayo’s – our Scottsdale and Shea location even has a tequila bar! To ring in the holiday, here are a few little-known facts about one of our favorite alcoholic beverages:

  • Every year, more than 300 million blue agave plants are harvested in the production of tequila
  • The flavors of the blue agave plant and the agave plant are a little bit different
  • There are many different types of tequila, and they are categorized by how long they’ve been aged
  • The perfect size for tasting tequila is half an ounce
  • You can make small artificial diamonds out of tequila, which are often used in electronics
  • Tequila can only be titled “tequila” when it is from the blue agave plant and made in Jalisco, Mexico
  • George Clooney is one of the co-owners of Casamigos tequila
