Tacos & Tequila Pairing

The history of the coupled food and drink

The fun alliterated pair of tacos and tequila is not only fun to say but even more pleasurable to enjoy for a complete experience of a taco and tequila dinner. But the food and beverage couple, which started out as singles, each has a unique history. According to  Miami Culinary Tours, The word “taco” had its inception in the 18th century. When men went into silver mines in Mexico, a taco was referred to as paper wrapped around gunpowder. But, as most things evolve, foodies are appreciative of it’s application to the delicious morsel that consists of a combination of a corn or wheat tortilla and then is filled with meat, vegetables, rice, and/or spices. In the perfect pairing, Tequila is more than a distilled spirit; it’s a cultural icon of Mexico. Tequila is one of the most internationally recognized flavors of Mexico. It’s less well-known cousin, mezcal, is an equally important part of the Mexican cultural landscape and both spirits evoke the true essence of Mexico as the law dictates that tequila and mezcal can only be manufactured in Mexico.
