You’ll get a lot of opinions on tequila. For some, it’s a rocking good time, for others, it is perhaps the most dreaded of poisons, usually as a result of some poor decisions (and likely some subpar, non-100% agave tequila) that one night in college. But we say don’t let that night tarnish a good thing. Graduate to the good stuff and you’ll find a world of flavors that you can sip with your dinner or relive the glory days shooting with your bros-turned-semi-professional-adults. Tequila festivals celebrate said good stuff and are often paired with margaritas, a refreshing alternative vehicle for those who can’t take the bite. You might even find tequila’s cousin mezcal at some of these fests. Ok, so it’s decided, you’re going to these tequila and margarita festivals — now all that’s left to decide is who gets to (has to?) eat the worm. Nose goes.
