Is Tequila a Stimulant?

tequilaYou’ve heard it — or said it — before. “I’m going to drink Margaritas tonight because I am pretty tired. Did you know Tequila is the only alcohol that is a stimulant?”

I am going to burst a few salt-lined bubbles, and I swear I am not doing it out of personal revenge for tequila. True, it has not always been kind to me, we have had our rough nights, but I still wouldn’t resort to making up lies about it. Here’s the truth, tequila is not a stimulant. Sorry.

I know it feels so good when it hits your lips and has inspired incredible dance moves, pick up lines and song lyrics (e.g. Tequila Makes Her Clothes Fall Off & You and Tequila Make Me Crazy), but it is not a stimulant. Like all alcohol, it is a depressant, though I realize this is hard to believe when you are dancing on the bar at 2am. The myth that tequila is a stimulant is much like our college mantra, “If you don’t remember it, it didn’t actually happen.” False or not, if it works for you , and makes you enjoy your summer night a little more, believe what you will. Bottoms up. Look out for the worm.
