National Tequila Day is Sunday July 24, and while I can’t partake in the festivities this year because I have a baby on the way I did round up several drinks you could try to celebrate!

Tequila is one of the oldest spirits and the Tequila we know and love today was created in the 1600s when the first tequila license was issued by the king of Spain.
