National Tequila Day!
Or should we say National Blackout Day?
This Friday, July 24th begins the celebration for Mexico's famous (and beloved) Tequila! If there was ever a time to let loose and make questionable decisions its Friday, because National Tequila Day duh.
To help you celebrate, and with the help of thestreet, I will list the necessary Tequila filled drinks you need to have this Friday!
Thank god this falls on a weekend.

The Texas Two-Step

1 oz Tequila
2 oz Orange Juice
1 oz Triple Sec
Shake well, served chilled or with ice.

The Pepino

1.5 oz Tequila
1/4 sliced cucumber
3/4 oz lime juice
1/2 oz pineapple juice
3 basil leaves
1/2 oz Triple Sec
Muddle the cucumber to make this refreshing tequila drink. Add ice, the rest of ingredients and some basil leaves and more cucumbers to garnish.

AMF (Adios Mother Fucker)

1/2 oz Tequila
1/2 oz Vodka
1/2 oz Rum
1/2 oz Gin
1/2 oz Blue Liqueur
2 oz Sweet and Sour Mix
2 oz Lemon Lime Soda
Mix all ingredients and top off with the splash of soda. This is a dangerous one my friend, its like the Long Island of tequila...which makes an even deadlier Long Island!

Spice Chocolate

1.5 oz Cafe Liqueur
1.5 oz Tequila
3/4 oz Dark Chocolate Liqueur
pinch of Crushed Red Pepper
Fresh Whipped Cream
Like I would leave you awesome tequila drinkers without a desert option.
Add all the ingredients except the whipped cream into a shaker with ice and then strain into a glass. Add whipped cream (the more the merrier) and a sprinkle of crushed red pepper.

Bloody Maria

2 ounces tequila
1 teaspoon horseradish
3 dashes Tabasco sauce
3 dashes Worcestershire sauce
A dash of lime juice
3 dashes celery salt
3 dashes pepperTomato juice
1 teaspoon dijon mustard
Celery stalk for garnish
For the hangover the next morning you NEED a Bloody Maria. Fill the cup with ice and pour liquids half way. Then fill the rest with tomato juice and garnish with anything from a celery stick to bacon to a whole chicken.
Check out the other insane garnishes here.

Tequila Shot

Salt, Shot, lime baby! Enjoy, and since its national tequila day...splurge on the good shots.
