Drink of the Day: Tequila Part I

In yesterday's blog post, I mentioned something about the Drink of the Day posts I've been doing. I might make it a feature I do every other week instead of every week. Or maybe make it a once a month thing. Or maybe scratch it all together. I have fun doing it but it's not the same as the other things I blog about. If no one is reading my regular blog posts, I don't particularly care because I'm writing as an outlet. For these, I'm writing them so people might have a new drink that they may be able to make for themselves at home or give them something new to order at the bar. If no one pays attention to them, I'll just scratch doing them all together because there's no point. So, any feedback on these posts would be appreciated! If I get no feedback on them, I'll just quit doing them. =)

This week, I've got some drinks and one shot that need some tequila. Next weekend, we'll have "tequila part II" where I'll be featuring three to five different margarita recipes.
