What we do know is that there is a salt and lime tradition that most people associate with crazy drinking parties. Indians, like Mexicans, use a lot of beans, spice and tomatoes in their cooking.Though the traditional Mexican shot is straight tequila, lime is the fruit of choice when a chaser must be used. It is believed that the salt lessens the “burn” of the tequila and the sour fruit balances and enhances the flavour. These tequila blends, or mixtos, are very sweet and smooth, making them perfect for shots and frozen margaritas.Silver tequila is a clear spirit that can be either 100 per cent agave or mixto. The law requires them to be produced, bottled and inspected in Mexico, so unless you’ve ordered an imported bottle, you’re technically not drinking a tequila in India.

Tequila that is not 100 per cent agave is called mixto because it is blended with sugar and water during distillation. Reposado, or “rested”, tequilas are aged in wood tanks or casks for a minimum of two months. Pairing tequila with food is very much like pairing wine; you look for things like acidity and freshness to cut through fat, and things like tannin and bitterness to help break down meaty dishes. According to Mexican law all tequila must contain at least 51 per cent agave. Then there is Anejo tequila. A famous Indian brand of blue agave liquor is Desmondjis. This type of tequila has a robust flavour.Tequila is made by distilling the fermented juices of the blue agave plant with water..
