National Tequila Day at Uncle Julio's!

On Friday, July 24th, Uncle Julio's Casa Grande will pull out all the stops for National Tequila Day. The much-loved beverage is one of Uncle Julio's most popular ingredients, featured in a variety of margaritas and other drinks as well as in many recipes. Uncle Julio's even sends its managers to "tequila training" at Patron's production facility in Guadalajara, Mexico each fall.

Uncle Julio's has released these tips for enjoying tequila straight:
  • Take your time. Sip, don't shoot.
  • Before you taste, notice the color and aroma.
  • Taste, notice the body and the finish.
  • If you are comparing different tequilas, save some time to compare.
  • Sip water between tequilas to refresh the palate.
  • Licking lime or salt is not necessary before or after the salt, especially with better tequilas, because these things will mask the drink's flavor.
Uncle Julio's Casa Grande is located at 1860 Peachtree Road NW. For more information about Uncle Julio's and its tequila offerings, visit
