Tequila is certainly one drink that people just never seem to get “sick” and tired of. But, pleasure is not the only thing tequila fans get from this fiery drink. Another thing to have in mind as well is the calorie count.
The place of origin is considered to be none other than the city of Tequila, and it's use dates back to the 16th century. It is made from blue agave cactus plant and can be purchased in different varieties as follows: white tequila (i.e. tequila blanco/plata), gold tequila (i.e. tequila joven/oro), rested tequila (i.e. tequila reposado), aged tequila (i.e. tequila añejo) and extra aged tequila (i.e. tequila extra añejo).
Even though many are baffled by this, tequila, as such, has a fairly high calorie count. For this reason, it is always recommended, to drink it in moderate amounts and not overdo it, since it can cause not only unwanted hangover, but also unwanted calorie buildup. Getting down to numbers, the nutritional information regarding tequila (1.5 fl.
