Tuesday may seem like a mini-Cinco de Mayo celebration.

July 24 is National Tequila Day and restaurants across the country are pouring deals for the made-up holiday.

Tequila is made from the blue agave plant, which is found near the city of Tequila, Mexico.

According to a report by IBISWorld, tequila like rum, underwent a backslide in popularity over the past five years. But unlike rum, the research company has found tequila sales have rebounded in recent years.

Tuesday also is National Drive-Thru Day, National Cousins Day, National Amelia Earhart Day and National Thermal Engineer Day.

Don Julio
Herradura
Patron
1800 Tequila
Cabo Wabo
Milagro
Tres Generaciones
Corralejo
