Top Five Ways to Celebrate National Tequila Day

Who knew that there was a National Tequila Day (July 24th)? To celebrate everything tequila, Chevys Fresh Mex, a national border cantina-style Mexican restaurant chain, will host a National Tequila Day Fiesta starting July 20 with special menu and drink offers leading up to National Tequila Day on July 24. They also shared some fun ways to celebrate a recipe for a Watermelon Margarita that you can try at home! Enjoy.

1.     Throw a Tequila Olympics party complete with a flaming margarita torch and games like bobbing for limes in a tub of margarita mix, a tequila worm dance contest, ‘??margarita pong’? with tequila and limes, and shimmying under a limbo stick while holding a frosty margarita.

2.     Stop by for your favorite tequila drink specials at Chevys Fresh Mex participating locations on July 24 including the 1800 Margarita (House or Fresh Fruit); Cazadores Blanco, Herradura Silver, El Jimador Reposado shots; and Paloma, Red Paloma or any flavor Tequini.

3.     Mix up a batch of Chevys luscious fresh fruit margaritas to celebrate with America’??s favorite cocktail (see recipe below for the 1800 Watermelon Margarita!)

4.     Sample seasonal tequila-themed menu items like Chef Carlos’?? Flaming Tequila Chicken Fajitas or new fresh, summer-inspired flavors like Habanero Grilled Steak Tacos, mesquite-grilled Carne Asada and Shrimp Skewers and citrus-infused Ceviche Mixto at Chevys Fresh Mex participating locations.

5.     Choose five different types of tequila and host a blind-folded tequila taste test in classic shot glasses. Don’??t forget a palate cleanser of chips and salsa!
