Once little more than party fuel, for years tequila in the U.S. market was dominated by a crude hybrid, aptly called "mixto," but of late, it has graduated to the status of fine sipping spirit. Now growth in sales of real tequila, made from 100 percent agave, is outpacing that of the cheap stuff by some threefold. But there's more to the story of tequila than its popularity, and How the Gringos Stole Tequila traces the spirit's evolution in America from frat-house firewater to luxury good.
