Tequila is no longer just a drink of rowdy parties or of the common man. It has become like a glass of Champagne. It can be ordered as an aperitif in restaurants, consumed with meals or quaffed after dinner. It has found its place on the home bars of wealthy connoisseurs as well as at watering holes frequented by blue-collar workers.
