PLANO, TX — Grab a lime and a bottle and get ready to celebrate the newest holiday you had no idea existed! Yeah today is National Tequila Day and over at Mexican Sugar in Plano they were all set to celebrate.

“Especially on the patio, a lot of people wanting to drink tequila right by the fountain,” said Alexandra Gastelum, the manager at Mexican Sugar.

And despite the stereotypical thoughts, most people have about tequila, for a lot of folks tequila is basically the new wine and they serve it up gourmet style.

“Everything that we use here is premium. Everything we make is from scratch, so it’s the quality of tequila and also education,” Gastelum said. “We educate our staff, we give them a lot of tequila knowledge, tequila tastings, weekly trainings, and that’s what they let their guests know and it’s the whole experience.”

Hey, all that education is necessary, too since they stock over 150 kinds of tequila. Who knew there were that many, to begin with?

So what’s the best National Tequila Day recommendation from this agave expert?

“I would go with the Casamigos Añejo on a margarita or just a sipping tequila," Gastelum tipped.

Sounds like a plan! But just remember, if you plan on imbibing in National Tequila Day might be a good idea to make tonight, National Get An Uber Home Day, too!
