     Tequila is much more than a pitcher of margaritas or a quick elixir in a shot glass! From desserts to appetizers, this Mexican spirit is used to add an extra flavor kick to many dishes. Tequila was indeed the first distilled drink in North America. It was the first commercially produced deep in the 18th century. Tequila history is robust, rich, and rooted in pre-Hispanic times when natives fermented sap from the local agave plant into a drink called pulque. Tequila is just an example of the many spirits brought to Nebraska by those who made the Nebraska Territory their destination after arriving from many corners of the world. Don’t miss this talk.
     This talk was scheduled to supplement a scheduled temporary exhibit at the Museum: Aliento A Tequila.
