Celebrate Authentically with Tequila Don Julio by Thinking Outside of the Salt Rimmed Glass

National Tequila Day is almost upon us and this year, think outside of the salt rimmed glass and turn to Mexico’s favorite tequila – Don Julio – to help you celebrate authentically. Tequila Don Julio uses only the choicest, fully matured and ripened blue agave hand-selected from the rich, clay soils of the Los Altos region, using the same standards of production that Don Julio González established when he followed his passion to establish the luxury tequila category.

 

Whether you’re partial to a rich, smooth Reposado with a splendid golden amber color or a Crystal Añejo twice distilled and aged to perfection for 18 months then carefully charcoal filtered to bring back the crisp agave flavor found in a Blanco, we have you covered with a selection of innovative recipes created by Chicago bartender Ashley Lemasters of Antique Taco. These summery sips are from the latest iteration of Agave and EEEEEEATS, a curated dinner series from Tequila Don Julio, The Infatuation and #HashtagLunchbag.
