a€œTequila is my soul mate, a€ Lucinda Hutson exclaims. a€œMexico in a bottle, its flavor is as melodic to the mouth as a mariachi tune is to the eara€”bold, spicy, and full of life!a€ For nearly forty years, Lucinda has trekked through tequila country, distilling adventures and knowledge to present them to enthusiastic readers around the world. Her 1995 book Tequila! Cooking with the Spirit of Mexico helped usher in the boom that transformed the tequila industry. Now in AiViva Tequila! she returns to her lifelong passion, bringing us deeper into the traditions and vibrant present of Mexico, and creates fabulous, flavorful recipes for drinks and dishes made with Mexicoa€™s agave spirits. AiViva Tequila! begins with a lively tour of the history and culture of spirits made from the miraculous magueya€”pulque, mezcal, and tequila.
