Glycemic index: Provides a measure of how quickly blood sugar levels (i.e., levels of glucose in the blood) rise after eating a particular type of food. The effects that different foods have on blood sugar levels vary considerably. The glycemic index estimates how much each gram of available carbohydrate (total carbohydrate minus fiber) in a food raises a person's blood sugar. Glucose has a GI of 100.

Tequila: I don't know the glycemic index of Tequila but you can drink a small amount from time to time. On the day you are going to have Tequila please check your blood sugar before dinner and again at two hour after dinner and Tequila. This should give you an idea of how much you need to increase your pre-meal insulin when you know you are going to enjoy Tequila.
