Everybody knows that Elon Musk, the CEO of SpaceX and Tesla, loves to crack jokes on twitter and troll people with outlandish statements. But here's the thing: When the super-genius billionaire throws out ideas for some crazy shit, he usually ends up following through. So we're going to go ahead and say that the new "Teslaquila" tequila posted to Instagram by Musk is most definitely going to be a product you'll be able to buy soon.

The Teslaquila, which comes via Narcity, was just posted to Musk's Instagram following an April Fool's joke that Musk posted to twitter goofing on Tesla's rough month in the marketplace; it had him posed as homeless holding a cardboard sign saying "bankwupt." The tweet's caption read in part: "Elon was found passed out against a Tesla Model 3, surrounded by "Teslaquila" bottles, the tracks of dried tears still visible on his cheeks."  A bunch of people have already started asking Musk questions to see if the Teslaquila may actually become a real product, and it seems that, according to Musk's responses, it probably will. First he noted in one response that "It's the best[.]" Then in another tweet asking to make the Teslaquila happen, Musk responded "As you wish[.]"  And finally when somebody just outright said, "sell the tequila," Musk replied "Oh, it's on ..."  Also, Musk seems to have a lot of fun with booze. Here he is playing around with some flaming absinthe in Jerusalem:

We think there's still a slim chance that ol' Musky McFunnyBones may be having a goof with this booze, but considering the fact that the dude's companies make reusable rockets, super-fast all-electric cars, tunnel boring machines, and flamethrowers, we think making a little booze on the side wouldn't be that big of a deal. Plus George Clooney made a shitload of money off of tequila, and maybe Musk could use another billy to help get people to Mars. 
Have any thoughts on Teslaquila? Would you use it in either of the tequila cocktails below? Let us know, people!  https://www.youtube.com/embed/2Vgo_LB2LYU See recipe https://www.youtube.com/embed/YwcI7eeuxgA See recipe
