Tequila: the spirit of Mexico
Long considered a lowbrow liquor, tequila today is becoming one of the most popular beverages, and its wide appeal is decidedly upscale. An entire tequila culture has developed, not only throughout Mexico but in sophisticated restaurants and bars worldwide, from New York to Los Angeles, London to Tokyo.Despite this trend, little has been published about tequila and its origins, varieties, and method of production -- until now. In this delightfully visual book author Enrique Martinez Limon takes the reader on a fascinating anecdotal journey through the history of tequila, complete with information about how it is grown and produced, and descriptions of its legends, heroes, songs, and artistic manifestations. The lively text is enhanced by Michael Calderwood's beautiful photography and the specially commissioned artwork.The final chapters provide recipes for tequila-based cocktails and for dishes using tequila, as well as professional ratings of more than a hundred brands.
