Don’t you love National Food Days? It’s just a great excuse to drink/eat something because you can say you’re celebrating. The holiday I’m celebrating today is Tequila Day. It is actually tomorrow (July 24) but I am bringing the party a day early. One of the best uses of tequila is to make a classic…
