5 Tequila cocktails to celebrate National Tequila Day! (RECIPES)
Well, I'm just going to say it: today is National Tequila Day and I think that means that we ALL should be celebrating!
Anyone who knows me can tell you that I am a pretty serious margarita devotee. I've always liked cocktails over beer or wine and, to me, the margarita is as perfect as they come. But today is national TEQUILA day, not National Margarita Day (which, yes, I already celebrated back in February), so I wanted to see what else this delicious liquor could offer me. From the Aztec summer (a perfect summery drink), the classic tequila sunrise, an oh-so-delicious copa verde (with avocado!), a paloma brava and a brave bull (basically a tequila-style black Russian), there's something here for everyone who wants to celebrate this holiday.

Ingredients: 1 1/2 oz. tequila, 3 oz. orange juice, 1 tsp. grenadine
Directions: Shake well with cracked ice, then strain into a large, chilled cocktail glass. Pour in the grenadine and stir gently, for no longer than is necessary to produce the sunrise effect (you know, layers of oranges and reds and whatnot--or, you can just shake the grenadine in with everything else; we do). This baby is usually served on the rocks, in a Collins glass; our way looks better. If, however, you just can't bring yourself to squeeze your own oranges, better build it on the rocks--with store-bought OJ, it turns out kinda thick.
