Blue agave (Agave tequilana)
Because agave nectar dissolves quickly, it can be used as a sweetener for cold beverages such as cocktails, smoothies, and iced tea.

Agave nectar (also called agave syrup) is a sweetener produced from several species of agave, including blue agave (Agave tequilana).[1][2] Agave syrup is sweeter than honey and tends to be less viscous. Most agave syrup comes from Mexico and South Africa.
