Happy National Tequila Day!!!!!  I love special days especially when you can include lime and salt.  National Tequila Day is dedicated to recognizing Tequila, a distilled alcoholic beverage made from the blue agave plant and the main alcohol in a margarita.

From National Day Calendar Tequila has a deep and storied history. It was named after the small town of Tequila in a valley west of Guadalajara in Jalisco, Mexico.  The spirit was known as mezcal wine about the time the conquistadors came to the continent.

Hear are some fun facts about Tequila:

  • Did you know Hollywood celebrities have ventured into the Tequila industry?  Justin Timeberlake, Carlos Santana, and George Clooney just to name a few have their own Tequila brands.
  • According to Guinness World Records, the most expensive bottle of Tequila was worth $225,000 in 2006.
