Written By: Locale Editors National Tequila Day

July 24 is National Tequila Day, and we had Jaime Salas, Milagro Tequila’s National Ambassador, give us the inside scoop on why this particular tequila has stood the test of time as being a favorite worldwide. “Tequila offers a diverse taste profile that is imparted from terroir and aging methods to help diversify and provide consumers and bartenders with tons of taste to play with for cocktails. Milagro’s range of tequilas makes it, truly, a year-round spirit. Its agave forward taste profile is woven throughout the range. Milagro’s different expressions lend an added layer of flavor, stemming from the tequilas contact with oak. The flavor works to highlight those bright and fresh flavors along with the added warm, toasted spice in the older expressions that work well with winter flavors.” Here are some of our favorite SoCal spots to sip Milagro, responsibly, of course!

Native Knowledge: According to Salas, “Tequila is the heart and soul of Mexico in liquid form. Tequila is the best ambassador of the Mexican culture. The day should be a celebration of togetherness with delicious Mexican food and tequila.”

Native Knowledge: Salas’s top three reasons you should start drinking tequila if you already don’t include the fact that “Its taste profile is unique to each distiller and their process.” In addition, “Most Silvers have a bright, spice or fruit element to them that pair well with seasonal herbs and fresh fruits, guaranteeing a fresh and fun cocktail.” Finally, “It makes you dance! Millions of Tequila drinkers around the world can’t be wrong. They’re on to something. Get on board.”
