Celebrate National Tequila Day (July 24) Chevys Fresh Mex Giveaway

national tequila day

Raise your hand if you love margaritas!  Yep, me too!  There’s no better beverage to pair with a great Mexican dish.  This month, you don’t have to look hard for the perfect excuse to go and enjoy a margarita with your friends.  National Tequila Day is on July 24, and Chevys Fresh Mex, a national border cantina-style Mexican restaurant chain, shares their top five ways to celebrate!

1. Throw a Tequila Olympics party complete with a flaming margarita torch and games like bobbing for limes in a tub of margarita mix, a tequila worm dance contest, “margarita pong” with tequila and limes, and shimmying under a limbo stick while holding a frosty margarita.

2. Stop by for your favorite tequila drink specials at Chevys Fresh Mex participating locations on July 24 including the 1800 Margarita (House or Fresh Fruit); Cazadores Blanco, Herradura Silver, El Jimador Reposado shots; and Paloma, Red Paloma or any flavor Tequini.

3. Mix up a batch of Chevys luscious fresh fruit margaritas to celebrate with America’s favorite cocktail (see recipe below for the 1800 Watermelon Margarita!)

4. Sample seasonal tequila-themed menu items like Chef Carlos’ Flaming Tequila Chicken Fajitas or new fresh, summer-inspired flavors like Habanero Grilled Steak Tacos, mesquite-grilled Carne Asada and Shrimp Skewers and citrus-infused Ceviche Mixto at Chevys Fresh Mex participating locations.

5. Choose five different types of tequila and host a blind-folded tequila taste test in classic shot glasses. Don’t forget a palate cleanser of chips and salsa!
