Does such a thing exist? I fondly remember my first tequila experience. I think I did about six traditional shots of a particularly pungent brew. The next morning I woke encircling a toilet bowl in a suitably authentic frontier wagon arrangement.

Naturally affronted at such a rude awakening and I quickly exited the toilet to discover I had a new girlfriend. I could only blame this on the miraculous judgement impairing qualities of Tequila. Unfortunately my new girlfriend had arisen to start throwing beer bottles into a recycling bin. If ever there was a noise which can grievous pain to a hangover, it is the sound of glass smashing against itself. Sadly my new girlfriends voice was not much better than this noise. Tequila obviously alters human hearing in addition to impairing judgement.

What other drink is sold with a worm? I know of none. What other drink would, after drinking a portion make eating a worm seem like fun? Tequila. It is indeed a very strange set of circumstances that has lead me to staring down the bottle of two Tequila infused events.

Next Friday will see a Mexican themed farewell drinking session at my place of work. Tequila included. Secondly on the last Monday of our time in New Zealand will entail a birthday dinner at a Mexican cafe. Tequila compulsory.

I can’t see either being a quiet drink of Tequila. So my question remains.

Has anyone successfully had a quiet drink of Tequila?
