Our latest video featuring Mark Alberto Holt and Gabbi Villarrubia, our tequila experts from Sayulita, Mexico, is all about tequila and hangovers. I asked them to address the hangover issue because people ask me about it all the time – and I always tell them that if you drink GOOD tequila that’s made from 100% pure agave, you won’t get a hangover.

Mark and Gabbi explain why this is true.

You should remember that there is a difference between a “hangover” and just straight out alcohol poisoning. If you drink an entire bottle of high quality tequila by yourself, you might not feel so great the next day, but that’s because you’ve pushed it too far and not because tequila is a sure-fire hangover inducer, as some people wrongly believe.

Personally, I find that if I drink even a little bit of these “mixto” tequilas (tequila that isn’t “100% de agave”) I’ll end up getting a headache and feeling crappy the next day.

So, stick with the pure stuff, and your body will thank you.
