July 24th is National Tequila Day

In anticipation of the "holiday," you might ask yourself, "what mixes well with tequila?"  The answer just depends on how much of a tequila "purist" you may be.

  • Tequila & soda (seltzer, not pop)
  • Tequila & pineapple juice (brings a hint of the tropics your way)
  • Tequila & orange juice (a step up from the Fuzzy Navel or Screwdriver you're used to)
  • Tequila & Bloody Mary mix (a Blood Maria is a spicy how-do-ya-do)

What is the Best Tequila?

The best tequila around might just be the one that's around.  You can get picky or you can get to drinking.

But in case you're looking for a few suggestions, here are a few to look into:

According to BetArizona.com, the most popular tequila in both Iowa and Illinois is Don Julio.

How Do They Figure This Out?

This makes sense. BetArizona.com used Vinepair.com’s list of most popular tequila.  They took that info and used Google Trends to determine the most searched brand in every state but Hawaii (due to incomplete data).
