If you like tequila, you’re going to absolutely love a tequila festival. The Bay Area Houston Tequila Festival is coming to the Morgan Falls Event Center in Alvin, Texas, on April 2, 2022. This three hour festival will run from 4 pm to 7 pm.
Blue agave, grown in Mexico, is the base ingredient in tequila. Tequila can be described as tasting fruity, sweet or earthy, depending on the variety. The range of tastes includes notes of citrus, honey, vanilla, oak, carmel and black pepper. Tequila that has been aged tends to be smoother and richer than others.
