A whole day dedicated to tequila? Sounds like a good time, especially when mixed with a little salt and lime. National Tequila Day is Saturday, July 24, and Atlanta restaurants are highlighting signature cocktails and rolling out specials to give this popular spirit the celebration it deserves.
Just in time for National Tequila Day, Little Bear, located on Georgia Avenue in Summerhill, is debuting its Purple Motorcycle cocktail. This riff on a Blue Motorcycle gets its naturally purple coloring from local blueberries used to make blueberry triple sec that is mixed with Arette Blanco tequila, ASW vodka, Still Pond gin, Tessendier Saison rum, lemon and Mexican Coke. The eatery also offers Corralejo, Cimarrón and Arette tequilas and mezcal—all available by the glass or in classic cocktails.
