Tequila Time - Part 2

Nacho Suave’s History of Tequila


Tequila Reef Cantina - Pattaya, Thailand


In memory of DKW 20/4/17


Nacho Suave had to lot to say about Tequila and its wonderful history. He related many stories about his travels. A few I’ll mention here to share:

The origin of Tequila is probably a lot simpler than the gods and all their drama. Could it have been lightning striking an Agave plant transforming it with super magical properties? Maybe not but I still got a few questions. Did lightning strike just one plant or a whole field of them? Did this super plant spread its special properties to all the others growing around it? Probably not. Maybe it just spread it seeds in the wind. Who knows? Legends, myths, fantasies; these all offer mystique to all things Tequila. Especially when imbibed. 😀

It seems the Spanish soldiers under Cortez ran out of brandy real quick after he burned all their ships. Nothing left but what the locals had and that was Pulque. So I suppose a wily Spanish Sargent started distilling the fermented agave from the pulque the locals were producing. Making the first tequila. After a while a Franciscan monk took advantage of this new spirit and its properties and started a ‘mission’ of sorts in what is known today as the Tequila region in Mexico.

Here is a SIMPLE DESCRIPTION OF THE FERMENTATION TO DISTILLATION STAGE for making Tequila:



Tequila History Fermentation to Distillation


Nacho Suave explored it far and wide and told many, many tales…

Yeah, yeah, that’s all history but Nacho Suave always has more to say about the details. After all he’s well versed in all things Tequila. Nacho Suave’s Perfect Margarita is the Perfect Margarita! His own heritage goes way back and I’m pretty sure a lot of what he tells is Tequila enhanced. When Nacho Suave is blasted on a few of his Tequila concoctions plus 3 or more Perfect Margaritas he usually rambles on & on. Makes for good entertainment too! Sometimes he even reveals a secret recipe or two.

Anyways, I digress…

All the factual history in the books is true but there is always more to tell in every tale.
Different angles, different shapes, and different sizes.

Stay tuned…

Same Tequila Time!

Tequila Time - Part 1

60 oz Suave Grande Margarita
Tequila Reef Cantina - World Famous Margaritas

From the Beginning

Making a great cocktail is an art form.

A good bartender knows this and does his best to provide the perfect drinking experience. We at Tequila Reef take a great cocktail seriously. Creating the perfect blend of ingredients in a colorful and appetizing way is our tradition. With that in mind, we'd like to give ya'll a bit of history on the making of a great Margarita. Of course, it all starts with the Agave:

In the fields of Mexico grows an amazing plant. A plant known far and wide for its ‘medicinal’ properties. No, it isn’t any form of ‘illegal’ plant that grows on this Earth. This particular plant has a special history. One that comes from the great Aztec gods of old.

There is a saying in this world, “The gods must be crazy!”. Well, I tend to agree. Aztec gods, Mayan gods, Greek titans, Roman colossi, etc…whatever! They argue about everything just like people do. The problem is when the gods argue regular people always seem to get the shaft. They cause all kinds of trouble with their shenanigans. The effects from their actions still live on today.

Not everything the gods do is negative. Sometimes the effects produced are surprisingly pleasant. Take for example the story of how Tequila became popular in the world. It’s a long story and has an ancient beginning. Of course, anything pleasant like Tequila takes a lot of work and great hardship to produce. Especially when it comes to its origins. 

Pulque is the great ancestor of Tequila. Pulque isn’t distilled, it’s fermented. Fermented from its main ingredient: The AGAVE plant! Yes, the AGAVE plant. There is an old legend about this incredible staple in Mexican life. One that comes from the Aztecs. I heard it told by old Nacho Suave himself. It’s a good place to begin the story of how Tequila came to be.

Ancient Margarita

To the Aztecs Agave provided ‘the drink of the gods’ known as pulque. It’s a white frothy drink that goes way, way back. It’s the direct ancestor of what we know as Tequila today. It comes from the maguey, or agave plant and takes a dozen years or so to mature and give out the sap which is needed to produce this intoxicating drink. The ancient Aztecs and others who lived in the region used it for medicinal purposes and especially in their rituals. Some of these rituals are known to have been very bloody indeed.

That brings us to how the Agave plant came to be. According to the Aztecs there once was a goddess, Tzintzimitl, who lived in the sky. A real bitch by today’s standards. She was evil in nature and covered the Earth in darkness and forced all the natives to sacrifice to her despairing countenance. She was greedy for light and devoured all she could get.

Now Quetzalcoatl wasn’t happy with Tzintzimitl. He thought the natives should be treated better and decided to give Tzintzimitl her comeuppance. So one day he went out to look for her. Fortunately he didn’t find her but came across her grand-daughter, Mayahuel. She’s the goddess of fertility and naturally he fell in love with her right on the spot. So instead they ran off together and tried to start a new life.

But Tzintzimitl would have none of that. Not at all. When she found out she went on a rampage looking for them and never let up on the search. So, in order to hide, both Quetzalcoatl and Mayahuel turned themselves into trees so they could be next to each other and still touch one another.

After a long search involving mass destruction Tzintzimitl finally found them. She killed Mayahuel and Quetzalcoatl was heart broken. He then sought his revenge upon the evil goddess and battled her in the sky killing her. His revenge didn’t assuage his sorrow as he would go to Mayahuel’s grave and cry every night. Seeing this the other gods decided to help the heart-broken Quetzalcoatl. They made a special plant grow at Mayahuel’s burial site. A plant with special hallucinogenic properties that would give comfort to Quetzalcoatls broken heart. He made an elixir from this plant and named it pulque and shared it with the natives. The natives gave thanks to Quetzalcoatl for this great gift and today the Agave plant lives on in the great spirit of Tequila.
