Whenever I think of tequila shots, the country song lyric "Tequila makes her clothes fall off" plays in the back of my mind. But a taste of the spirit doesn't have to lead to drunken mishaps. In fact, you can actually sip it. Who'd have thunk it?
If you're a tequila drinker, check out the launch party for Avión Tequila, happening this Thursday, Sept. 8, 6 p.m., at Mez. Avión, which boasts to be the world's smoothest tequila, is made in Jalisco, Mexico, and was recently recognized at the 2011 San Francisco World Spirits Competition with Double Gold distinction. (Side note: If you're a watcher of the show Entourage, you may already be familiar with this brand.)
Avión Tequila shots are going for $4, bottle service at $145, and $1 from every drink sold goes toward the Avon Walk for Breast Cancer Fund.
