Whether you enjoy it straight up with salt and lime, frozen or on the rocks, July 24 is blue agave juice’s time to shine — it’s National Tequila Day.

Fun facts:

  • Tequila was born in a city named Tequila, which is in Jalisco, Mexico.
  • In 1978, tequila was the first Mexican product to receive an Appellation of Origin.
  • Like sherry and Champagne, tequila can only be produced in five Mexican states — Guanajuato, Michoacán, Nayarit, Tamaulipas, and Jalisco, which is the largest producer.
