Helps With Digestion: Tequila includes organic substances that help digestion naturally. A Ponak’s Margarita is an excellent cocktail to take after a heavy lunch at your favorite restaurant to boost metabolism and digestion.

Gluten-Free: The majority of alcoholic drinks contain grain, and many people are sensitive to grain. Tequila is produced from blue agave plants rather than grains. This is why margaritas are gluten-free.
