Arriba for tequila!

Many of us have been subject to the effects of one too many margaritas –but few of us know that there’s ample cause to celebrate this indigenous spirit, too. Eve Kalinik leads the toast for tequila

Real Nutrition


Tequila is derived from the Mexican blue agave plant and, to make it, the plant must mature for at least eight years, at which point the piña, or heart, will be distilled. Just like Champagne can only be called champers if it comes from that specific region, unless tequila is made in Mexico, it can’t be called tequila. Like any decent spirit, the purer, the better, and ideally you want to go for the 100 per cent agave tequila, as many of them can contain only 50 per cent agave with the rest made up of artificial fillers. Tequilas will also be categorised depending on how long they’ve matured, and that can be anywhere from two months to three years. Hardcore tequila peeps will drink theirs neat over ice if it’s the real-deal stuff, but most of us like a bit of lime juice and salt with our shot as the bracing minimum.

About Psychologies

This month we’re exploring how to truly have a happy Christmas. If you don’t have any religious beliefs, the holidays can be rather become a meaningless glut of overconsumption and commercialism, but this issue will help you explore how to create a different experience for you, your friends and family this year. And often it’s about kindness. Our interview with June Sapong explores how we can use kindness in our everyday lives to make the world a better place. One of our own relays her experience of finding the bravery and courage to start dating again. When a relationship goes sour, it’s normal to lick your wounds for a bit but how do we begin to heal and have the courage to be vulnerable and get back out there again? Ellen Tout takes us on that journey. Natalie Hourihan explores ‘creativism’ with author and entrepreneur Orna Ross and shows us how to connect with our ‘creative intelligence’ so we can design a life that works for us on our terms. The good news we all have access to this intelligence, we just need to know how to harness it!
