Today is National Tequila Day, and that fact that it also happens to be Monday is a serendipitous event if we’ve ever heard one. Celebrate this extra-festive occasion while bidding Monday adiós by mixing up one of these effortless-but-delicious Palomas from Fat Baby Tacos. The restaurant makes theirs with Tequila’s close cousin, Mezcal, but you can substitute with the tequila of your choice. Salud!
