Today is National Tequila Day. I’m not planning anything big this year… though this last year I’ve found a new favorite Tequila (Don Julio Reposado) and had a few events where Tequila was the beverage of choice.
Last year for National Tequila Day I did some research and posted a list of facts about Tequila; the one that really surprised me was this one:
Mexican law states that Tequila can be produced only in the state of Jalisco and in “limited” regions in the states of Guanajuato, Michoacán, Nayarit, and Tamaulipas. That means that if you’re drinking real Mexican Tequila, there’s a better than average chance it’s from near Tequila, Jalisco, same as it’s been since the 16th century.
If you’re looking for some great deals for today’s festive occasion, check out the list compiled by Culturemap and this one from 365 Things To Do in Houston. Culturemap’s list includes TQLA, a place I visited yesterday and am adding to my “review in progress” list. Photos and post for TQLA will follow, eventually.
How are you going to celebrate today?
