How to make delicious tequila at home from moonshine: a step-by-step recipe

There is no huge Mexican agave, as in Mexico, in our country. But our compatriots adapted other raw materials for creating tequila: aloe vera and American agave, which grow on our window sills.

  • Aloe is in almost every house, and many people also breed agave, and if you look, you can find it.
  • Homemade craftsmen make an imitation of tequila from moonshine and aloe, since the strength of Mexican tequila is 55 degrees, and it is pure moonshine that will be an excellent substitute for the alcohol ingredient in this drink.

Here is a step by step recipe:

  • Wash and finely chop 150 grams of agave or aloe leaves. Put them in a 3 liter jar.
  • Add a tablespoon of sugar with a slide to the same jar. It is necessary to remove excess bitterness from green leaves.
  • Pour sugar and chopped leaves to the top of the can with moonshine. Close the lid and shake well to dissolve the sugar crystals.
  • Put the jar in a dark place at room temperature for 14 days.
  • Strain, bottle and drink with salt and lime. You can replace lime with lemon.

It is important to know: When you get the jar in 2 weeks, your home-made tequila will have a greenish color. If you want the drink to be transparent, then you can put the can on the window. When insisted on light, the color of the drink will be transparent, and the taste will be the same as when tincture in the dark.

Many home craftsmen use a different way to lighten a drink after infusion. They dilute the green 1x1 drink with water and distill it again. But many people claim that after such manipulations, taste and aroma are lost.

Aloe vera

Remember: Aloe is a plant that has various medicinal properties. There are contraindications for its use. For example, people with many cardiovascular and cerebrovascular diseases are not allowed to use aloe in any form. With the addition of alcohol, the properties of this plant become more pronounced. Therefore, be careful and if there are any diseases, for ingestion, better prepare tequila from the concentrate purchased in the store.

There is another recipe for making tequila using a special concentrate, which is sold in stores.

Here is the prescription:

  • Mix the concentrate with moonshine in the proportion as indicated on the label.
  • Now prepare a three-liter jar. Lay oak chips (sawdust) at the bottom.
  • Pour the diluted mixture of concentrate and moonshine and insist 2 weeks.
  • Then strain and can be consumed.
