National Tequila Day is today and Pelóns Tex-Mex Restaurant is celebrating with Milagro Tequila, made from 100% estate grown blue agave harvested from the highlands of Jalisco, hand-selected to slow-cook using a generations-old method, and then triple-distilled resulting in an exceptionally smooth spirit with a signature agave-forward character. The restaurant will feature Tecate and tequila shot combos, street tacos, and tequila tasting stations between 4pm – 10pm on July 24.

For those that prefer to stay home to celebrate, try some of the DIY tequila cocktail recipes:
