Try Two New Drinks For National Tequila Day

National Tequila Day is July 24th, and what better way to celebrate, than with some amazing drinks you may never have thought to make with tequila.  Eye Opener's Hillary Kennedy connected with Henry's Majestic Mixologist, Ryan Federick and he showed us two great recipes with Casa Dragones Blanco tequila.

This first one would go great with something meaty, like some fish tacos, and is called the Hoguera Dulce.  The things got smoked pineapple juice, and a hint of coconut, so it's perfect for a hearty food.  The next one, affectionately called the Dandelion Dragon mixes tequila with strawberry and basil and is what you need at happy hour, just chilling on the patio.  Make sure to check out the recipes below.
