I scoured the web looking for the origin of National Tequila Day but found none. Whatever. Probably, the Tequila Council or some such entity put their marketing heads together and came up with a random date to celebrate the best of the agave.
If you only have a little bit of tequila in the house, you can still make these beer margaritas which are really good with chips, guacamole, and salsa or popcorn. Let me know what you think.
For a bit more sophistication and tequila, mix it up with sangrita. While popular in parts of Mexico, it hasn’t caught on here yet. Let’s say it could be your best kept secret or start tweeting and who knows how popular sangrita can get.
