Petrone vs. Patron: National Tequila Day
LORD HELP ME.
It's National Tequila Day today (July 24th) and my last name is Petrone.
Yep, like Patrón. Like, sometimes the bartender doesn't know if I'm closing out my tab or asking for a shot, Patron. So it's safe to say that I'll be feeling super great (not) on Monday morning. The following tequila-based cocktails will definitely help me get there. You should make them too! Then it'll be like we're drinking together. Except not at all. #happydrinking
