Drinking Tequila

We had our company outing at Mantayupan Falls in Barili last June 3, 2012. It was a planned event as the company owner is scheduled to go back to Bend, Oregon, United States by June 11, 2012.

But bringing, buying and even drinking tequila was not part of the plan. It suddenly came into picture when my officemate suggested in buying a tequila when the van that the company rented stopped at a gasoline station in Gorordo Avenue. Then another officemate suggested to buy the tequila in Carcar City instead because we will be buying our food there.

According to Wikipedia:

Rum is a distilled alcoholic beverage made from sugarcane by-products such as molasses, or, directly from sugarcane juice, by a process of fermentation and distillation. The distillate, a clear liquid, is then usually aged in oak barrels.

Dark Rum, also known by the rum’s particular colour as brown rum, black rum, or red rum, classes as a grade darker than gold rum. It is generally aged longer, in heavily charred barrels.

It is used to provide substance in rum drinks, as well as color.

First reaction – I almost forgot the taste of cold San Miguel Beer. I waited some minutes for my system to react to the beer. And since it was a round-robin shots, I had ample time to feel how my stomach would react. But I only had the normal system reaction – burping. Then I had some more shots and I feel no stomach pain, no adverse reaction.
