Celebrate National Tequila Day in Style with Tequila Don Julio

With all the stress of work the week, many of us could use a drink. Let the go of annoying sounds of co-workers and the horrible bosses nagging in your ear, and celebrate with a cocktail on us. Friday is here.


National Tequila Day falls on a Sunday this year (July 24, 2016) and no better excuse to fight off the “Sunday Scaries” than with Mexico’s original luxury tequila, Tequila Don Julio! We reached out to a few mixologists to create the perfect cocktails for the occasion.
