If you’re looking for something to do in Nokomis, look no further than Captain Eddie’s Seafood. You can enjoy some tequila and good food with your friends, family, or even a date. Be sure to head our way for National Tequila Day.
National Tequila Day takes place on July 24, 2023. This holiday is the perfect excuse to sip on some tequila either by itself or part of a cocktail or margarita.
Tequila has a rich and long history. The drink is made using fermented agave and dates all the way back to 1000 B.C. Indigenous Mexican tribes during the Mesoamerican era would harvest and ferment this drink, but 16th Century A.D. marks the date of contemporary tequila as we know it.
The first tequila factory opened in 1600 in Jalisco, Mexico, which is now known as Tequila, Mexico. Don Pedro Sanchez de Tagle, a Spanish aristocrat, opened the factory. Years later, in 1795, Don Jose Antonio de Cuervo founded the Vino Mezcal de Tequila de Jose Cuervo in modern day Tequila. This tequila brand is now the most popular and successful in the world today.
Even though the history of tequila is well documented, the reasoning for the date of National Tequila Day is more murky. The common zeitgeist rules that National Tequila Day takes place on July 24 in the United States, while the Mexican Senate ruled in 2018 that their version of the holiday would take place on the third Saturday of March.
The National Today data science team surveyed 3,000 people on the subject of tequila, with 76% of people saying they love margaritas. While most people preferred their margarita frozen, 33% opted for a margarita on ice.
Approximately 30% of surveyed individuals said margaritas are their favorite happy hour drink. If you’re one of those people, think about making your way to Captain Eddie’s Seafood restaurant for happy hour.
