Tequila sets the beat for summer cocktails. With National Tequila Day here, it’s mandatory to kick off your weekend with a delicious cocktail. While lots of people will celebrate National Tequila Day with a margarita, I’d suggest serving a few cocktails that are just as good — but a little less expected.
The key to hosting friends is to keep it effortless — especially when it comes to preparing cocktails. Here are a few easy-to-create selections to help you along the way.
Añejo Old Fashioned
