If you’re in New Orleans on Tuesday, July 24, 2018, you’re in for a treat. Well, more than a treat: tequila. July 24th is National Tequila Day and Felipe’s Mexican Taqueria is celebrating by giving you a buy one, get one free deal on margaritas all day long.
Felipe’s, which has multiple locations around New Orleans (see below), makes the classic key-lime margaritas fresh to order. The simple recipe includes 100% blue agave tequila, fresh squeezed key limes, a house-made orange liqueur, and agave syrup.
Like all of the meals on the menu, the drinks are also true to the restaurant’s mission of curating authentic recipes. In fact, the Felipe’s team traveled to the Herradura distillery in Jalisco, Mexico and handpicked the Double Barrel Reposado Tequila which is aged for up to a year in a charred oak barrel and then re-barreled into a virgin white oak barrel for one month. This is one complex, sweet, and smoky tequila.
What’s making this National Tequila Day even better is that it falls on Taco Tuesday this year. You’ll find a great variety of authentic, scratch-made recipes served at Felipe’s to go along with your margaritas.
There are three Felipe’s Mexican Taqueria locations in New Orleans. You can find them at 301 North Peters Street; 411 N Carrollton Avenue; and at 6215 South Miro Street.
