/that sounded a whole lot manlier in my head

Tequila makes me mean. And hung over.

Just don't eat the worm; that's when shiat goes pear-shaped.

Years ago, I purchased a plastic champagne fountain and filled it with margarita. It was such a hit, it has been a mainstay of all my parties ever since.

I'm pleased to know that I have given so much aid to my friends.

Still remain skeptical.  I won't trust until I can replicate the results.

Who really remember if it was great or not.

If you drink enough of it, you can stop the aging process altogether.

On Saturday my friend wanted to make Kamikazes but didn't have vodka so used tequila. Don't know it there is already a name for it but I should be immune from any diseases for the foreseeable future.

iheartscotch: Just don't eat the worm; that's when shiat goes pear-shaped.


Really?  I'm my experience it has this unfortunate ability to temporarily turn pear-shapes into hour glasses.  The effects pass at first of dawn's light when the prince bolts for the nearest door, sometimes chewing his own arm off if needed in the fashion of a tragic Cinderella story in reverse.

Agave syrup is fructose syrup, and I'm guessing agavins are fructose oligosaccharides (multiple fructose molecules linked into chains).  Good to know that fructose is now a health food and not a poison.

Thank you for that bit.  I was wondering what sort of "new" sugar could be lingering in there.

It's called a margarita, seriously.

A good and proper margarita is 2 parts tequila, one part triple sec, and one part fresh lime juice. (I do cuervo silver, cointreau, and half a lime).

The margarita mixes are over sugared abominations.

"Now tequila may be the favored beverage of outlaws but that doesn't mean it gives them preferential treatment. In fact, tequila probably has betrayed as many outlaws as has the central nervous system and dissatisfied wives. Tequila, scorpion honey, harsh dew of the doglands, essence of Aztec, crema de cacti; tequila, oily and thermal like the sun in solution; tequila, liquid geometry of passion; Tequila, the buzzard god who copulates in midair with the ascending souls of dying virgins; tequila, firebug in the house of good taste; O tequila, savage water of sorcery, what confusion and mischief your sly, rebellious drops do generate!"

I always had margaritas with cointreau. Is cointreau and Triple Sec pretty much the same thing?

Indeed

That's probably why I see so many one armed dudes running around here. They were out "whaling" the night before.

/ my buddy, jim, is reallllllly into big girls; I, and every other guy he knows, gives him plenty of shiat for it.

Or, I can switch to using agave syrup as a sweetening agent and continue drinking scotch and whiskey instead of wrecking my palate with tequila.

Yes.

Cointreau is triple sec, triple sec is not Cointreau.

Find the orange liqueur you like, but the triple sec most people call "triple sec" is dekuyper, which is disgusting (overly sweet, not enough citrus, IMO and all).

I love how quickly a stupid news story spreads on the internet, and how quick Google is to document it. Google agavins. Tequila tequila tequila, but tequila shouldn't have any sugars in it since it's a distilled product. Also, very little seems to translate from mice to humans, judging by the fruitless bounty of headlines and stories over the years. Either that, or mice are getting humans to make it possible for them to live forever.

CSB time..

My girlfriend brought some of the hippy agave sweetener and I threw that shiat out after one taste.

Thanks - we had a couple pitchers and then laughed our asses off watching Cutthroat Kitchen - but I wasn't laughing much Sunday morning.

Yep.  Scientific report: The sugars used to make tequila may help with obesity and diabetes.
Moronic reporter (picked up and repeated by everyone else): Tequila may help with obesity and diabetes.

Because reading is hard.
