What comes to mind when you think of tequila? For most people, the answer is a night of drinking and fun. However, there's so much more to tequila than just shots and margaritas!  But did you know that tequila is actually made from agave plants? And that agave plants have a ton of health benefits? Tequila Brooklyn is a colorless liquor made from the juices in the agave cactus. Although it had been a local staple since the 1600s, it was first commercialized by Jose Cuervo in 1795. It only gained widespread popularity around the time of the Mexican Revolution.
