Tequila for the apocalypse



I'm growing blue agave? Are you? They're in a lot of landscapes across Florida.

Most people don't know what these guys are. Some people don't want to know, after that horrible night they spent in college, face down on the floor covered in cheese dip and vomit, passed out and getting covered in gang tatoos by a friend of a friend only known as "DredInk Southside."

But for those how enjoy God's gifts responsibly, tequila and mescal are pretty decent drinks. I have no idea how to go about making it, but I suppose if the Spanish could do it long ago with limited technology, it can't be too hard.

Now I just need to find some gusanos.

Good post! Agaves in this family grow great here, and can be used as a fencing to keep out everything but maybe the most determined of zombies. It also can double as a substitute for roof shingles.
I'm almost sure I wrote something about it's common cousin, century plant, and about how to make mescal and tequila.
