Cure for the common cold

Remember back in the day when people used alcohol as remedy for colds? Well they were on to something. Docs in Mexico recommend mixing .5 ounce of tequila blanco, .5 ounce of agave nectar, and .5 of fresh lime juice. The mix will pump you up with vitamin C, sooth sore throats and make you feel all happy inside. 

Weight loss

The agave plant has the ability to dissolve fats and lower cholesterol. That doesn't mean you can drink all the margaritas you want and the pounds will fall off.
