It’s National Tequila Day! And while you might be tempted to just throw back the regular old margarita, I have something new for you to try.
Don’t get me wrong, I do love a good margarita. My favorite one is a Mambo Taxi at Mi Cocina if we are in Dallas. Or a yummy homemade one while on vacation in Mexico. Tequila and lime juice – so refreshing! But today I am going to share something a little different with you for national tequila day.
Casa Dragones tequila sent me this recipe for The Pink Panther and it sounds delicious and light. I thought I should share it with you. After all, who likes to drink alone? I have told you about Casa Dragones tequila in this previous blog post. Casa Dragones is an independent, small batch producer with a passion for crafting exceptional tequila, one bottle at a time. Each bottle is hand-signed and numbered, hallmarking our commitment to quality. Truly incredible.
Happy Friday! Happy National Tequila Day! Cheers! xoxo- Tanya
