Jose Cuervo Tequila And Heart Palpitations

Rate this topic

Recommended Posts

I drank one drink with some orange juice. I drank it early about 6 pm.

I went to bed at 10 pm and my heart would not quit pounding. It took about an hour for it to quit enough for me to go to sleep. I just bought a $17.00 bottle of tequila to have for Xmas cheer. I can't believe I can't drink it.

I know whiskey does this to me, but I thought I could drink tequila.

I'm not dx'd celiac, by the way.

I went to their website to look at the ingredients but they just have this fancy little rollover thing that you can do to the bottle and I can't see the ingredients.

If the tequila wasn't clear, you could be reacting to the caramel coloring in it. Might be the same reason you react to whiskey.

Honestly, its worth splurging just a little more and getting the "good" stuff. Clear tequila is a much higher quality, tastes better, and tends to cause fewer hangovers on the odd chance that you might overindulge in the festivities this year.

Something else to think about... Did you eat after the drink? That's a pretty big amount of sugar (oj and alcohol). It could be reactive hypoglycemia. Maybe try it again, this time making sure to eat some protein and carbs while you're drinking and see if there's a reaction again.

Thanks!

I was thinking about making some lemonade and trying it with that just to see if it was the orange juice. I did swig it down awfully fast and it was because of the sweetness of the oj. I couldn't stop myself. :huh:

I finally found a place in their website that says all their tequilas are gluten free. Hmmmm

Why would I be reacting to the caramel coloring? I tried to look it up but didn't come up with much except that it is burnt sugar.

Excuse me, but that's not entirely correct. Your first statement could be (depending, I don't know), but your second statement concerning clear tequila needs expounding on.

There are two basic types of tequila:

Mixto tequila. Must be at leat 51% agave by law (Mexican). The other 49% is cane suger. It can, and does, contain colorings and flavorings. Your Jose Cuervo @ $17 is almost certainly mixto. Although, Cuervo does make the more expensive type also.

100% agave tequila. Must be 100% agave with no added cane sugar or other sweeteners. No added colorings, any color is a result of aging in charred barrels. No added flavorings, the flavor is derived from the agave and any aging. This tequila is more expensive, and it will always say 100% agave right on the bottle. If it doesn't say 100% agave, it is a mixto. Agave is, of course the plant that tequila is made from. It is not a cactus, it is in the Lily family. It takes from 8 to 12 years to grow. Therefore, it's much cheaper to make tequila if you simply substitute cane sugar for half the ingredients, cane sugar needing only one season to grow.

Now, for each of these two basic types there are three categories:

Blanco. This is tequila that is usually clear. It is either unaged, or aged up to 2 months. If you buy the cheap mixto blanco, you won't have to worry about the caramel coloring, but there will still be flavorings added. I would recommend the 100% agave blanco. Of course the blancos, being unaged, will have the brightest agave flavor (if it is 100% agave). But also sometimes the harshest taste.

Reposado. This is tequila that is aged up to 6 months in charred barrels (usually used whisky barrels). The cheap mixto is often called "gold", and has added coloring in leu of ageing, also flavorings, and possibly other chemicals. This tequila is usually smoother than blancos.
