We’ll probably be climbing “that wall” to the Mexican side to stock up on some tequila to tackle the looming threat of a Tequila shortage.
There is a tequila shortage in the offing. if this persists. The shortage in the blue agave plant is what is leading to this dire crisis. The price of the plant has already gone up six-fold. How are we to celebrate anymore? Champagne, you say. Who are we the Queen? But instead of fretting, here are some ideas to tackle this threat that is a tequila shortage.
We researched it, tequila doesn’t go bad if stored correctly. Unopened bottles can last many years. So turn your spare bedroom into a storage room and buy those bottles while the prices are still consistent. Even an opened bottle can last if stored in a cool, dark, dry place.
Make it a Tequila Sunrise or a Margarita, ration your tequila by drinking more cocktails. A Long Island Iced Tea for instance also uses rum, vodka and gin. Use those generously and save tequila. Try some new cocktails with this:
Be green. Grow some agave. It’s a cactus. How hard can it be, right? We don’t really know but go ahead and try. We don’t even know if we are setting you down the right path but at least, it’s a start. Buy that plant:
Tequila can be used as much more than just a flambe. You can make appetisers, entrees and even desserts with it. You can’t go wrong really. With a beverage so yum why not feed it to your tum.
It’s not yet that bad. Sauza and Patron haven’t yet hiked up their prices.
Cheers to that.
