Unknown holiday alert: Today is National Tequila Day! The weekend alone is cause for celebration, but National Tequila Day is an added excuse to get the party started. So. . .you've got the drink settled for the night, but what about the food? De-glaze the pan with some reposado or añejo, and you'll find the toasty, tart, sometimes smoky flavor of tequila packs a punch in your meal, too. Need some ideas? Keep clicking for more.
Since today is National Tequila Day (cheers!), I thought I'd share my latest obsession with you. While I'm a huge fan of the classic margarita combination of tequila and fresh-squeezed lime juice, it pales in comparison to the delightful pairing that is watermelon juice and tequila. I'm so crazy about this dynamic duo that I've already made three different cocktails with it. The one seen here — my current fav — is a mixture of watermelon, tequila, mint, blueberries, and lime juice. With its sweet, minty flavor, refreshing thirst-quenching quality, and beautiful blushing color, this cocktail is almost perfect. I say almost because it's far too easy to drink. A problem that's quickly solved with a generous float of tequila. To get the party, or the weekend, started, make this drink tonight
