National Tequila Day – as if I needed a reason…

Happy National Tequila Day, (21+) friends! Tequila might possibly be my favorite liquor – and margaritas are certainly my favorite tequila-based beverage. Thanks to Blue Nectar Tequila, handcrafted from 100% estate-grown Blue Weber agave, I’d like to share with you a new take on the liquor with a couple of interesting, refreshing tequila-based drink recipes to help you celebrate this oh-so important holiday.

I’ve also included my favorite margarita recipe – which in my experience,  always tastes a little better with a cute umbrella in it!

Happy National Tequila Day…sip safely!
