We Run On Tequila! #NationalTequilaDay

“It was too much tequila, or not quite enough.” ~Jimmy Buffett, Semi-True Story

We love tequila. True story, we do. I know most people cringe at the thought of the T-drink, but we kindly submit that they may be misinformed. We’re not talkin your cheap tequilas that leave you with a hangover like a tap dancing kangaroo bouncing around the inside of your skull. We like to drink the clean stuff. This doesn’t mean expensive, mind you, it just means good clean tasting tequila.

We believe it helps your running too…Now hear us out, as many have scoffed at this claim only to be rebuffed when they tried it demselves. If we’re ever at a night 5k, we’ll do a shot before the race. For whatever reason, it seems to help us run faster. At a recent Dallas night 5k, we convinced our friends Emily and Tracy to try this. It worked – Emily was one of the first finishers and Tracy won her age-group. We’ll also do this before a night social run, and again, we go faster.

There’s also evidence that tequila is good for you. We’ve known for a while that it’s a probiotic, but apparently there’s several other benefits as you can see in this article. Shoot, even The Rock is starting his own tequlia brand. Is it any wonder after reading it’s part of his skin care routine?

Heck, we even gave out tequila shooters at our wedding reception as the take home party favor.

Trust us, we’ve done our research on this topic. So if you’re looking for some of that sweet stuff, here’s our top three (of the moment):

3. El Jimador

This is a regular go-to because of the LOW price point and the smootheness. We’ll go for the reposado most of the time.

2. Number Juan

Our numero two is Number Juan. Oh em gee, this stuff is gooood. We don’t get it as often because it costs a little more, but man it’s good. It’s owned by a couple comedians (Ron White).

1. Casa Amigos

Perfect evening – Casa Amigos & Blues Brothers

This stuff is da bomb. This is our go to for special occasions. It’s part owned by George Clooney and it’s his friend’s (Bill Murray) drink of choice. It is so smooth. So clean. It costs around the same as Number Juan, maybe a tad more. We love Casa Amigos. We wish they’d back a truck up to our garage and drop off a shipment.

Now you may be wondering how we drink tequila. Even if you’re not, we’re going to tell you. We like to shoot it or sip it straight. As our friend Christie (also a huge tequila fan) if she wanted a margarita, she replied “Why dilute it? Just go right to the source and give me a shot.” LOL, we couldn’t agree more.

We keep our tequila in the freezer, so it’s always cold (no, it doesn’t freeze). If you wan’t it really smooth, then put it in a shaker with ice. Shake and strain. It will taste like sweet water.

 

How bout you? Ever have a tequila shooter before a race/run? Any tequila favorites we need to know about?

 

Here’s a super secret we’ve discovered: Forget the salt and limes, instead use cinnamon and orange slices. TRUST US, it will change your tequila lovin world.
