Tuesday is special for multiple reasons. For one thing, the date is 2/22/22. That’s pretty cool. Also, it’s National Margarita Day. But, on top of all that, it’s also Taco Tuesday. This is a truly unprecedented, momentous occurrence. A literal trifecta of awesomeness. This means that there might not ever be a better time to enjoy mezcal, tequila, and tacos than this day. Seriously, what more do you need to relax and sip Mexican spirits and eat spicy, cheesy, tasty tacos?

While we assume you’ll have your fair share of turbo-charged, tequila-filled margaritas (it’s a holiday after all), you might want to also enjoy some mezcals and tequila neat, on the rocks, or in shot form. Why not enjoy them in all of their agave-based, vegetal, sweet majesty? Plus, in our opinion, mezcal and tequila are better companions to tacos.

That’s why, in an effort to help you out, we decided to pair some of our favorite mezcals and tequilas with some of the best taco varieties. We’re talking spicy fish tacos, rich barbacoa tacos, and even classic, fast food ground beef-based tacos. Keep scrolling to see all of the festive, delicious pairings.
