Tequila Exploration at Milagro

My fellow editor Emy and I headed over to Milagro recently for National Tequila Day (yes there is such a thing) to try out a variety of cocktails after enjoying a slew of our own this summer using Sauza tequila and Hornitos.

In must say in the past I have never been a big fan of tequila in shot form, or in drinks, but in recent years I have really warmed up to it so to speak, so we arrived to a patio surrounded in a slew of different brands, after making our way to the bar and trying out the mixed cocktails which included;
