Certainty of death. Small chance of success. What are we waiting for?

–Gimli, The Return of the King (Movie)

Termite tequila is a really weird and exotic drink. It is not only the second most alcoholic drink in the Mod (after vodka), which can cause your world to spin for six or more minutes, but it also contains a live animal and can kill you upon drinking it.

Brewing[edit | edit source]

It can be brewed using five cacti and one termite placed above the usual three water buckets in a barrel. Unlike other drinks, Termite Tequila cannot be bought or sold to any traders, so brewing is the only way to obtain this drink. Like other alcoholic beverages, tequila can be brewed in five potency steps. These are: weak, light, moderate, strong, and potent. With every step, the effects and alcoholicity of the tequila are increased.

Effects[edit | edit source]

Alcohol can kill you! This drink literally does it, as the termite inside has a chance to explode on consumption. It's like playing Russian roulette.

When consumed, tequila gives the player no advantageous effects, other than partly filling up the hunger bar depending upon its potency. Even if the player's bar is full, tequila can still be consumed. It may, however, give the player the Nausea effect, with probability and duration equally depending upon the potency; as tequila is the second most alcoholic drink in the Mod (first being vodka), this effect may be quite long-lasting. The player can counter this by building up alcohol tolerance or drinking milk.
