Tequila is the most well-known and recognized spirit produced in Mexico. While stories of its origin vary, many believe the spirit has been produced for thousands of years. On March 24th, 2022, Food and Vine Times presented an amazing event at The Woodlands Country Club – Palmer Course for all things tequila. 

Guests enjoyed great light bites with local restaurants serving food selections specifically prepared to pair well with tequila. Food, music, a Tequila Forum Seminar, and tequila/mezcal tastings, served both neat and as batched cocktails, were sipped and savored by all.
