Magueyes are a species of agave plant, from which tequila is made. When it matures, the
plant's pinapple-like base fills with a sweet sap, called aquamiel (honey water). The juice
is fermented, then distilled twice. Tequila is named after the town where it is made, in the
Mexican state of Jalisco. Our restaurant is named El Agave in honor of this tradition. Tequila
is mixed with lime juice to make the margarita cocktail, served in a glass rimmed with salt.
Usually Mexicans prefer their tequila unmixed and served with salt and lime slice on the side.
The drinker comines the flavors by taking salt, tequila and lime in rapid succession.
