Watch How Tequila Is Made

By Mike Pomranz |

Yes, Cinco de Mayo was yesterday, but it’s never too late to learn something – especially something as vital to our existence as how tequila is made.

The YouTube channel How to Make Everything has already promised us a new set of videos on How to Brew Everything. Though their full video on how to make tequila still won’t be released for “a few weeks,” they decided to take full advantage of the excitement surrounding Mexican alcohol yesterday by releasing a still pretty comprehensive two-minute teaser that runs through all the steps that go into making the most important ingredient in a margarita. (Sorry, triple sec!)


Granted, depending on how things went down last night, it may be that the last thing you want to do this morning is watch people drinking tequila. But hey, the great thing about learning about how alcoholic beverages are made is you can chalk up all the drinking you’ve done as “research.” Consider it my Seis de Mayo gift to you.
