National Tequila Day 2020: Miami's Top To-Go Cocktails for Celebrating at Home

Ready your shot glass, lime, and salt: This Friday, July 24, is National Tequila Day.

We South Floridians love our tequila, whether it comes in a salt-rimmed margarita or a hearty shooter. But as bars remain shuttered, many will observe the agave-fueled holiday at home, socially distanced from our fellow tequila enthusiasts. But do not fret, friends, many local restaurants and bars are offering cocktails to-go to help us toast the gods of tequila.

From spicy margs festooned with Tajín to a zesty chai-infused tequila blend, here, listed in alphabetical order, are Miami's top to-go cocktails to celebrate National Tequila Day.
