OK, I go into an ABC store to buy a small bottle of spiritus frumenti for the freezer. I go over to check out the tequila and I see my potation of choice, Sauza Hornitos. I look at the choices and I see that one type of packaging comes with a complementary shot glass. I look and it’s called “The Devil’s Horn”. It has no flat bottom and the marketers pendejones are taking the Spanish word “hornitos” and assuming it means “horn”. Hornitos has nothing to do with the English word “horn”.. (Horn in Spanish is cuerno as in cornucopia.) Anyway, a shot glass you can’t set down seems rather poorly designed. Hell, this ain’t Heorot and you ain’t Beowulf! Hwaet, y’all.
Horno means oven as in the Italian forno, The agave piñas are roasted in an oven which is one of the preliminary processes in the production of tequila. It’s a rather complex process which doesn’t need to be sullied with the concept of machismo.
Hijole! Que barbaridad!
I didn’t get tequila. I got some gin instead.
