Tequila is an alcoholic beverage made from the agave plant. According to Wikipedia, Tequila is a regional distilled beverage and a type of alcoholic drink made from the blue agave plant.
Tequila contains alcohol (also known formally as ethanol) and is most often made of 38% alcohol content (76 U.S. proof) for domestic consumption, but can be produced between 31 and 55% alcohol content
(62 and 110 U.S. proof). Per U.S law, Tequila must contain at least 40% alcohol (80 U.S. proof) to be sold in the United States.
It is commonly served neat in Mexico and it is also taken as a shot across the rest of the world.
It is recognized as a Mexican designation of origin product in more than 40 countries. It is believed to be a very strong liquor and has been linked to the death of afro hip-hop singer, Davido’s friend, Tagbo Umeike, who reportedly took ten (or 40 shots depending on the version you read) shots at Shisha Room where he, Davido and other friends had gone to have a nice time.
Meanwhile, an autopsy report has countered that claim, by revealing that Tagbo actually died of suffocation, as announced by Acting Commissioner of Police in Lagos state, Imohimi Edgal on Wednesday, October 11, 2017.
