July 24th is National Tequila Day, a great excuse to spend the day sipping your choice of more than 100 tequila varietals at the first restaurant in Texas to be recognized by the Tequila Regulatory Council of Mexico with an “Award T Recognition”, Cibolo Moon located at the JW Marriott San Antonio Hill Country Resort & Spa.
That means they officially REALLY know their tequila. Patrons can sip tequila, enjoy a margarita or taste one of the restaurant’s in-house infused tequila blends. The team must go through rigorous training and maintain a high level of knowledge about tequila to receive this respected recognition. They will gladly lead guests of the restaurant through tequila tastings, offering suggestions based on their individual likes.
At Cibolo Moon, tequila is as important as the restaurant’s savory Texas Hill Country menu.
Below is one of the resort's most popular Tequila Old Fashioned recipes with an extra Texas kick to it.
