There is a lot to be celebrated when it comes to tequila. Produced in only five states in Mexico, it takes 8-12 years for the blue agave plant to mature enough to make tequila. National Tequila Day is Monday, July 24, and Taco Guild is ready to celebrate!

Named the second best Mexican restaurant in the U.S. by the Travel Channel’s Food Paradise show, Taco Guild knows tequila. There are more types of tequila available at Taco Guild than there are seats in the restaurant. To celebrate National Tequila Day, Taco Guild is hosting an Instagram contest and a special event.

On Monday, July 24, Taco Guild will celebrate National Tequila Day with happy hour specials offered all day, plus live music and a special taco of the day.

A tequila tasting flight of three of Roger Clyne’s Mexican Moonshine tequilas will be offered for $15. These tastings will be served in Mexican Moonshine shot glasses which guests will be able to keep as souvenirs.

Strawberry Kiwi Blanco Sangria, a new Taco Guild cocktail, will also be served that night for $5.95. It is made with Sauvignon Blanc and Mexican Moonshine Blanco Tequila macerated with strawberries and kiwis topped with champagne and served over ice with a sugar rim.

Through July 23, Taco Guild is hosting an Instagram contest to celebrate National Tequila Day. If you post a photo of a tequila-based cocktail from Taco Guild on Instagram, use the hashtag #TGtequila, and follow and tag Taco Guild (@TacoGuild) on Instagram, you will be entered to win a $250 gift card to Taco Guild. The winner will be announced on July 24.
