Sipping off the Cuff: Embajador Reposado

Tequila Aficionado’s Alex Perez and Mike Morales taste and discuss Embajador Reposado tequila.

Embajador Reposado

The Aztec legends tell of the origin of Earth, and of an evil Goddess in the heavens named Tzintzinmitl.

Tzintzinmitl blocked the light of the Sun and kept the Earth in darkness. Quetzalcoatl, supreme God of the Earth, grew weary of her abuse and rose into the sky to put an end to the injustice. On his way, he encountered the fertile diva Mayahuel, granddaughter of Tzintzinmitl. He fell instantly in love with Mayahuel and took her back to Earth to live with him.

When Tzintzinmitl realized what Quetzalcoatl and Mayahuel had done, she went mad with rage and set out to find them. They hid from Tzintzinmitl but she pursued relentlessly. Desperate, the two lovers turned themselves into trees, thinking that Tzintzinmitl would not be able to find them. They dreamt that when the wind blew they could lightly brush against each other and in some way remain together forever.

The evening stars saw what Quetzalcoatl and Mayahuel had done and revealed the plot to the wrathful Goddess. Tzintzinmitl wanted to destroy Quetzalcoatl. She cast a powerful bolt of lightning that struck Mayahuel dead. Grieving and furious, Quetzalcoatl buried the remains of his beloved and advanced to the sky. With help from the Gods, he slew Tzintzinmitl, and thus was the Earth freed from darkness.

The Gods witnessed Quetzalcoatl’s grief and sought to comfort him. They caused a marvelous plant to grow from the exact spot where his cherished Mayahuel was buried. This plant they called Agave. It is a plant thought to have special properties. Agave produced an elixir that would comfort Quetzalcoatl’s soul. He shared his drink with man, who would christen it “Tequila…”

Monday Madness

Monday Madness was created as a blooper by-product of our production process for the Tequila Aficionado exclusive video program, Sipping off the Cuff. When M.A. “Mike” Morales and Alexander “Alex” Perez get together, whether in person or via Skype, to review tequilas for Sipping off the Cuff, something silly is bound to happen.  Rather than present these clips with their reviews, we chose to respect serious viewers’ time and get right to business with each SOTC episode to keep them at ten minutes or less.  The outtakes are often funny and show our silly side, so we chose to share them with you for your amusement, as well as ours, in our Monday Madness video feature.  Monday Madness is the evidence of how very much fun we have doing what we love here at Tequila Aficionado Media.
