This weekend we celebrate National Tequila Day! This July 24th holiday celebrates the classic agave liquor we all know and love. Or do we? And tequila is reportedly on the rise as Americans’ favorite liquor. Currently that title belongs to vodka.

I know I for one can’t wait to celebrate! And like any good holiday, there are some deals to be found. Chili’s is known for their margaritas or ‘rita’s and is one of the top tequila sellers among US restaurant chains. So of course they are serving up the deals including:

  • ($5) Margarita of the Month – Barcardi Beach Party: A cooling mix of Bacardi® Silver Rum, Mi Campo™ Blanco Tequila, blue curacao, coconut and pineapple that brings beach vibes to the bar.  

  • ($6) Chili’s Presidente Margarita®Hand-shaken 25 times with Lunazul® Reposado Tequila, Citrónge® Extra Fine Orange Liqueur and E&J Brandy. Available in classic, mango or strawberry. 

  • ($30) Gallon Mar-Go-‘RitaCelebrating at home? No problem! We’ve got you covered with our gallon margs to go, available in any flavor.  

Just two more days til National Tequila Day. But maybe just maybe you’ll find me celebrating the “eve” as well. Cheers! And as always drink responsibly.
