Recipe: National Tequila Day, 2013 Edition

If there ever was a lobbyist-invented, industry-approved holiday we endorse wholeheartedly, it’s the arrival of July 24th as National Tequila Day, which should followed by July 25th’s much needed National Hangover Day, had it not already been placed on the calendar on January 1st. Perhaps a Hangover Solstice? (Furthermore, why would a holiday like this land in the middle of a week?) Anyway, here’s a few recipes from our pals at Milagro that take things beyond the traditional margaritas and shots.
