“One tequila, two tequila, three tequila, floor.” – George Carlin

"One tequila, two tequila, three tequila, floor." - George Carlin

Tequila! More than 300 million blue agave plants are harvested each year to make this celebrated beverage. While the most traditional way to drink tequila, and most celebrated in universities across the country is straight up with a lime and salt, equally popular for the post baccalaureate crowd is the classic margarita.

Refined palettes enjoy a lesser known sangrita – sipping a shot of GOOD tequila with a side of a sweet and sour spicy drink.

If you choose to celebrate Tequila day without actually drinking the stuff…here are a few popular options for a tequila meal.

    I recently discovered tequila and traditional sangrita in place of the lime-salt combo and now prefer that. When entertaining friends I sometimes make an extra spicey version made with scotch bonnet or habanero chilis – Not for the faint hearted
