National Margarita Day is tomorrow. Tres Agaves just switched to solely producing ALL organic tequilas in addition to their mixers constructed a brand new state-of the art distillery in Tequila Valley, Mexico and brought on the very first female master distiller apart of a multi-generational tequila family- so there is a lot of exciting things happening for Tres Agaves.

So tomorrow pick up a bottle of Tres Agaves and celebrate the day with these cocktails below.
