Mexicans love to celebrate tequila day and so do we at the Littleover Lodge cocktail bar in Derby. Tequila is commonly served neat in a shot glass with salt and lime, as well as being synonymous with the margarita, and long island iced tea. Tequila was first produced in the 16th century just outside the city of Tequila Mexico and can legally only produced in a number of certified Mexican cities. Traditionally Tequila can be found in either a simple clear beverage to an amber brown, and the age and storage of the tequila will determine the colour. The darker the colour the longer the ageing process. Tequila is an official designation of Mexico in over 40 countries. With an alcohol percentage of anywhere between 31-55, you don’t need reminding that with a tequila cocktail bar in Derby to drink with caution or you’re in for a late night.
