Today, July 24 is National Tequila Day. It is a day to celebrate one of the most popular spirits in the U.S. With that in mind, I would like to share Tequila Herradura's Blood Orange and Mint Cocktail to help celebrate this holiday. Tequila Herradura is one of Mexico's finest tequilas, known for its smooth, oaky taste and gives this citrusy creation just the right touch.
