Toast National Tequila Day With Margaritas at These 9 Nashville Restaurants

National Tequila Day falls on July 24, and what better way to celebrate than with a refreshing margarita? Whether you like the traditional margarita, one that packs a bit of an extra punch, or something truly unique, there are plenty of places to celebrate the holiday in Nashville. Check out nine of our favorite places below.

1. Rosepepper Cantina

Rosepepper Cantina has amazing food, and equally impressive — and strong — drinks. Calling themselves “Nashville’s Tequila Specialists,” they offer several different types of margaritas, including a Tropical Margarita with frozen fruit, and a Skinny Margarita, made with Cointreau and fresh lime juice. But if you have to pick one — and based on the strength of their margaritas, one is plenty — try the El Feugo, made with fresh jalapeños.

2. Saint Anejo

Saint Anejo has a wide variety of margaritas, including both the classic flavors and unique ones, such as the Jalisco Flower, made with lavender, ginger, rosemary, fresh lemon, and the Fresh Diabla, with strawberry, agave and jalapeño. Their menu also boasts an astonishing 138 different kinds of tequila. Wow.

3. El Fuego

El Fuego promises margaritas as authentic as they come, and they aren’t wrong. The best part? A classic, freshly-squeezed margarita is just $3.99. Their El Fuego Margarita is infused with jalapenos. They also have plenty of other drink options, including a Paloma and Bloody Maria.

4. Bakersfield

Bakersfield has an expansive menu of both food and drinks, offering plenty of libations in addition to margaritas. But their authentic Mexican food practically begs for a refreshing margarita to wash it down. Our pick: the Cucumber Margarita, with Espolon Silver tequila, elderflower, cucumber, fresh citrus and agave. It’s practically a healthy drink.
