Viva Agave: Happy National Tequila Day!

Tequila might te-kill-ya, but it is nonetheless an important staple in anyone's drinking repertoire. That is why today we celebrate National Tequila Day (Cinco de Mayo just isn't enough tequila!). In honor of this boozy holiday, we are providing you with a fantastic list of bars around the city offering up delicious tequila-based cocktails. And for those who can't make it out today, there's even a DIY cocktail recipe. Cheers!

A.G Kitchen, the new Upper West Side restaurant by lauded Executive Chef Alex Garcia, looks to Southeast Asia for inspiration when crafting the Thai Me Down, which stars tequila infused with pineapple and Thai basil. The drink also incorporates fresh pineapple juice, fresh lime and green chartreuse – an herbal liqueur made by monks.
