Tequila the story of passion

¿Betray your own family to stay with the love of your life? This is the situation we are facing “Tequila: A Story of Passion” film directed by Mexican director Sergio Sánchez Suarez.
Tequila is a town in Mexico, where honor is everything. Antonio (Unax Ugalde), a young chieftain respected by all, has an affair with Lola (Daniela Schmidt), the wife of his uncle Vincent (Salvador Sanchez), who is loved and revered by people.

With each lie, Antonio is increasingly involved in a web of suspicion, obsession and jealousy threatening everything in his life.

Overall, the story is not new. Is typical about two young people living an impossible love. However, the plot can be attractive to the Mexican public that tends to be attracted to this type of situation on the small screen, we know that viewers like the melodrama.

However, the film not only focuses on so addressed and love story, because to some extent reflects the prevailing machismo in society in the 40’s.

One of its defects is not completely in depth history of each character, which would have helped to make the plot more attractive and have even led to the connection with them was greater.

But the great merit of this film is in production design. The setting and costume design, made by the director’s brother, Rodrigo Sanchez Suarez, were cared for in great detail and get to make the viewer actually transport the time after the fact.

The cinematography, by Andronicus Gonzalez, is another very welcomed in this film, it is very attractive and catches the audience from the start by its visual perfection.

In addition, actions are another factor that helps this film. Ugalde, Sanchez and Angelica Aragon (although the latter with less screen time than the previous ones), they get fully reflect their characters.

It’s a film that is worth giving a try, it is a sign of how Mexican cinema has begun to improve as far as production is concerned. In addition, as an added, the film manages to remind us of the golden age of Mexican cinema.

Panamerican Games Medalist is New Ambassador of Tequila

Queen of the Pan American Games Guadalajara 2011, Cynthia Valdez, was named Ambassador of Tequila.

In a ceremony at the Government Palace of Jalisco, Guadalajara gymnast who won two golds and three silvers at the last Pan American Games, was named as the representative image of the drink of Mexico, Tequila.

Valdez received recognition accompanied by her beautiful mother, as well as Government Secretary Fernando Guzman and the directors of the Tequila Regulatory Council, and then have breakfast with personalities from the government of Jalisco. The governor, Emilio González Márquez, was not present at the event.

“It makes me proud to be an ambassador of Tequila, because if you talk about the Tequila Mexico comes to mind is the representative of our country drink and Jalisco,” Ochoa said.

Regarding the invitation from the International Gymnastics Federation to participate in the 2012 London Olympics, the Jalisco does not hurry, yet expected to confirm this situation as a dream in his career.

“It depends on Mexico, depends on the International Olympic Committee and the Federation, will be waiting (Wild Card). It really is a dream I’ve always had, for two past Olympic cycles, which was Athens 2004 and Beijing 2008, so if today gives me the opportunity of London 2012, obviously is an additional motivation I have, but if there is no no matter, I have reason enough to feel happy, “he said.

Of the ankle injury that caused so much controversy, the beautiful gymnast announced that the recovery is going well and appears to be operated, as was said a few days ago.

“I’m much better, right now I’m resting and I’m not forcing my foot, do not enter the same, me being conducted to see how the recovery process and most importantly it is the safest thing is that no operation I was told, “said Pan American medalist.

Tequila Distilleries soon to go Green

Tequila companies will focus their investments in this and next year to preserve the environment.

Currently the Casa Cuervo company exports on an annual 10 million liters of tequila to over 120 countries, many of which begin to require companies producing their carbon footprint before closing purchase contracts.

“The investments will focus on the care of the environment with new stillage treatment plants to other plants, in addition to which was put into operation last year Camichines production center,” he told the director of The Economist Cuervo Tequila Institutional Relations, John Married Arregoitia.

The company tequila distilleries and six others are working with the National Chamber of Tequila Industry to build in the Los Altos region of the first floor or stillage treatment of liquid waste resulting from the distillation process.

The project, also involving Cazadores Bacardi, Pernod Ricard, Tequila Patron, Don Julio and San Matías, requires an investment of $ 10 million, for which the camera tequila distilleries and work involved in obtaining funds government both federal and international agencies, which will complement the contributions of companies. The plant will have capacity to treat at least 1,000 cubic meters of vinasse.

The production houses are ready the project, technology and design of the plant, so plan to break ground in the first half of 2012.

Before Tequila and Mezcal were so popular there was ¨Chinguirito¨

It was a privilege to attend this distilleries reserach meeting a few days ago. Held indoors in the town of Tequila Zuno organized by CIES in Guadalajara, Jalisco, Mexico.

Predesesor of Mezcal - Chinguirito

Chinguirito

The chinguirito was the first item, a drink made of sugar cane, brought by the Spanish in Mexico. According to researcher Dr. Teresa Lozano (UNAM), based on his studies around 1600 AD, the miners of Taxco sugar sold wine, 45 to 60 ° (brandy).

Later in 1784, distilled spirits had considered prohibited as “wine mesquite”, “grape brandy”.

Mesquite wine comes from the fruit of the mesquite tree, which is like a sheath to be ground and squeezed, are cooked in pots in an oven-style “barbecue”, the latter is the traditional pre-Hispanic oven, well, where surrounded by leaves of the agave to cook with some fuel, which could be wood, they dry branches, and so on. On the other hand, consumption of chinguirito was where he had cane plantations.

A curious fact, the researcher said that “vino mezcal” was banned by the Catholic Church, even calling it “excommunication drink” the distillate. He also coconut wine and mescal drinks were banned in Guadalajara Mexico, which was considered the cause of death in the City. A cultural data is that we are talking about it when we talk on the history of Mexico to chinguirito, rum or cane wine.

Tequila Tour in Walt Disney World

I just learned there is a Tequila tour at Disney World Epcot Mexico and is called La Cava del Tequila is the perfect place for adults who are looking for a fun drinking experience at Walt Disney World’s EPCOT Resort. Located inside the Mexico pavilion at EPCOT, La Cava del Tequila can be found at the bottom right side of the stairs after entering the building.

It seems to be the ideal tucked away spot for adults to spend an hour or so sampling your favorite tequila, or trying one of the 70 available varieties of premium tequilas. La Cava del Tequila is one of the best spots to meet with a few friends while touring EPCOT, as well as to make some new ones. The festive atmosphere in La Cava del Tequila, along with the potent and flavorful tequila drinks, makes it perfect for adults looking for some Disney magic to have a good time.

The Tequila Tour

The tequila tour is what I have named the entire experience of stopping in La Cava del Tequila at Disney’s EPCOT Resort and later leaving to tour the World Showcase. The combination of sampling a few tequila shots or specialty margaritas and then touring the different countries around the World Showcase has become one of my favorite Disney adult activities. To begin your tour, you must first navigate through a seemingly endless list of available tequila shots and specialty margaritas. Mexican beers are also available for non-tequila drinkers. My advice is to ask the bartenders about any drink you are interested in trying. On occasion, a shot glass sample of a margarita may be offered to help you decide.

Those who are familiar with the traditional Disney for adults, drinking around the world experience, the tequila tour is a must-try. The potency of the tequilas and margaritas at La Cava del Tequila takes the edge off of the Disney-priced drinks. Two or three of the drinks at La Cava del Tequila is more than enough to get anyone into a rather happy mood.

The Tequila Menu

The 70 varieties of tequila at La Cava del Tequila will please even the most expert tequila fan. There are no cheap tequilas to be found at La Cava del Tequila, and all of the drinks are made with premium brands, easing the potential hangover factor the next day. Specialty margaritas are among the favorite choices for visitors. The avocado margarita is both interesting and surprisingly good. The blood orange and jalapeno margaritas are also worth a try. Flavored salts and sugars are used to decorate the rim of margarita glasses and a number of exotic fruits are infused into the different specialty margarita blends. Both frozen and regular margaritas are offered. The Tequila Sunrise is a good choice for those looking for a potent but fruity drink.

Flights of tequila are a great way to try different tequilas and many guests seemed to be enjoying this method of tequila tasting on my last visit. Sangrita is typically served with many of the single tequila shots. Whatever your tequila choice or preference, La Cava del Tequila is likely to have it on the menu.

There are also a number of appetizers to sample while tequila tasting at La Cava del Tequila. Basic tortilla chips and salsa are on the menu, along with several other Mexican treats.

Final Tips

The tequila tour at Disney’s La Cava del Tequila is a self-guided tour which should be taken with some caution. It is not unusual to feel the effects of the tequila immediately exiting the Mexico pavilion. Drinking should be done over time, ideally with a side of chips and salsa. Photo opportunities should not be missed when you leave La Cava del Tequila, as there are sombreros and little Mexican hats to try on in the marketplace right outside the bar.

BREAKING MYTHS.

There are many myths that are around the tequila. Often, they are beliefs that are transmitted by word of mouth, though usually false.”The amber color is better than white? It depends, does not confer color quality, says Bernardo Torres, expert taster and a member of the Mexican Academy of Tequila Tasting. ¨ There tequilas fruity, herbal, floral, spicy, depending from where the agave and the type of land where they grow. ¨

“The laid back, the older the better,” they say. He believes it also depends, in most cases depends on the quality of tequila, that is, from its formation at the beginning. Not always the case, suggests Bernard. According to the winemaker, is tequilas for all and that should be determined by its qualities and not their color.
