National tequila day is Sunday July 24th here are some great margaritas and local places to celebrate. Cheers!
Shaken Not Stirred Margaritas
Joyride Taco House - 302 N Gilbert Rd #101, Gilbert, AZ
Shaken not stirred….Joyride is the perfect sort of place you hope to discover with friends. The vibe draws you in, the food blows you away with its freshness and the cocktails are sublimely delicious. We won’t blame you if you don’t want to leave. Order a few more of those tasty tacos, signal your server for another icy refreshment, lean back in your chair and enjoy the ride.
Smashed Watermelon Margarita
Blanco Tacos & Tequila - Scottsdale
Cheers to this delightful cocktail with mashed watermelon tequila with a chili lime salted rim.
Blanco’s fresh twist on Mexican food is all you need to experience that ocean kissed bliss you crave. Lounge long and drink on with tantalizing tequila flights, and easy but innovative a la carte tacos. Fresh salsas and our famous house guacamole. Whether you’re hungry for something flavorful or thirsty for something fun, they’ve got everything you want at Blanco.
Death’s Door Margarita
Barrio Queen- Avondale, Desert Ridge, Gilbert, Glendale, Scottsdale, Tempe and Queen Creek
Are you tough? 💀This margarita packs the heat that might make you cry and call your momma. Additionally, Barrio Queen is turning #NationalTequilaDay (July 24) into National Tequila Week—plus celebrating for a good cause, with a portion of proceeds from multiple events benefiting Phoenix Children’s Hospital.
La Ristra New Mexico Restaurant - Chandler & Gilbert locations
Beat the heat with this refreshing Spicy-Pina-Rita with coconut purée, jalapeño tequila, spicy Tjain rim. Authentic New Mexican restaurant serving over 150 tequilas. Sunday, July 24, 2022, 20% off all tequila shots, ALL DAY happy hour as well as live music!
Gallo Blanco - 928 East Pierce Street
Gallo Blanco bartenders shake up a variety of margaritas with tequila, lime, and house sour, but we prefer to pick the proven concoctions. At Gallo, that's the Jamaica. The house cocktail contains just a few ingredients: jamaica-infused tequila, Aperol, lime, and vanilla. But sure to snag a seat on the patio if you can, or the bar area with the floor-to-ceiling windows. The best part? It's only $7 during happy hour.
Ghost Ranch Southwest Cuisine - 1006 East Warner Road, #102-103, Tempe
While all the Ghost Ranch margaritas are worth the trip to south Tempe, only the Fuego Margarita is made with chile de arbol infused tequila. Combine that with triple sec, agave syrup, and fresh lime juice for a cool drink in an even cooler Southwestern setting (we're talking about Ghost Ranch's fantastic dining room).
Huckleberry Frozen Margarita
Roaring Fork - 4800 North Scottsdale Road, Scottsdale
A margarita with a delicious berry twist? It might not be authentic, but it sure is good to drink. The frozen huckleberry margarita is a signature item here. It's a deep purple, insanely tasty. The only caveat is the brain-freeze. And for variety's sake, there's also the spicy jalapeño margarita, a peach margarita, and the Raging Rita (just a house marg served on the rocks or frozen).
