National Tequila Day is almost here and we want you to be prepared to celebrate! Everyone deserves to participate in this celebration with a proper cocktail - or two! We’ve put a list together sharing some of our favorites PLUS food pairings that make the perfect sidekick!
Reyna’s Taqueria is a locally-owned and operated, traditional Mexican restaurant located in Sarasota at The Sarasota Commons. Their delicious recipes have been passed down from generation to generation and the people of Sarasota are hooked! The housemade Lemon-Lime Margarita will have you going back for more! It pairs perfectly with their Barbacoa Sopes…thank us later! Also grab the churros with the housemade caramel sauce, do we need to say more?
The Lounge at element has an intimate vibe that will set the tone as a night to remember! Their cocktail menu is a play on the elements: Earth, Fire, Wind, and Water! View their full menu here. Our three favorite tequila drinks are the “Stay Grounded,” the “Hot Girl,” and the “Boozy Ginger.” As you sip the night away grab some small bites like the Loaded Truffle Fries or the Slow Roasted Birria Tacos. This modern take on a classic urban cocktail lounge is a must for your Tequila Day celebrations!
Looking for a classic margarita? Blanco tequila, fresh lime, agave served on the rocks with salt. It’s tried and true at Duval’s FLS. But if you’re looking to get a little risky, let us highlight the “Paradise Spice” from their Summer Sips menu! Lunazul Blanco, fresh jalapenos, pineapple, and lime, topped with prosecco! O…M…G.
Enjoy this delicious tequila drink paired with their sensational bar bites! The Thai Chili Tuna is immaculate.
From the moment you step through the door at Mi Pueblo and enjoy their authentic Mexican menu you will think you are in Mexico. The colors, the smell, and the sound will all transport you to a tiny Mexican village (pueblo) here in Florida! Pair the incredible atmosphere with their award winning margaritas – Mi Pueblo is a tequila sanctuary! Psst... did you know that mi Pueblo offers their famous Margaritas by the half-gallon To-Go? Now that's something to celebrate. Some of our favorites are the Margarita Jimidor and the Mexitini! View their entire bar menu here. Stop by one of their three locations for their Happy Hour, daily from 5-6 p.m. We recommend pairing your tequila with their Pancho Nacho’s or the Queso Fundido!
