National Tequila Day: 10 Deals and Freebies To Celebrate
While it isn’t a formal holiday, many people look forward to celebrating National Tequila Day on July 24 each year. This year, the holiday falls on a Saturday, meaning you can celebrate all day long.
Tequila is made from blue agave juice with the addition of some other sugars. The tequila we enjoy today has origins in Spain when the king was issued the very first tequila license in the 1600s. Today, tequila’s only produced in Jalisco, Mexico, and some of its surrounding areas. Then, it’s shipped around the world.
