  • Tequila 101: Everything to know & enjoy
    Tequila 101 - Everything you ever wanted to know and learn about Tequila, from the farming to manufacturing, history and then sample each type. Learn how to avoid that “Tequila hangover”, learn the difference between Tequila and Mezcal (which ones have the worm and why? Or is it even a worm?). We discuss the process from the agave plant on the farm to the process of making Blanco, Reposado and Anejo (and learn what’s the difference and TASTE the difference). You will learn why Margaritas aren’t really served in Mexico (except in Americanized resorts - is it an American drink?). We’ll also share some authentic Mexican Tequila drinks and classic cocktails that you might enjoy even more than a Margarita - and we’ll divulge the origin of the frozen Margarita - a true American invention. Being in Central America and just across the bay from Mexico, we have tequila masters that will show you how to make the perfect Margarita (and other more authentic Tequila cocktails), then send you home with the recipes so you can impress your friends. Class includes: 4 tequila shots (half-sized) small refreshments and a tequila cocktail to celebrate your class graduation. Other things to note Legal Drinking age in Belize is 18 years old. All guests must be at least 18 years old with a valid ID. Please bring ID with you to this event.
