It makes sense to celebrate National Tequila Day at Milwaukee's first tequilaria.

Blue Bat Kitchen & Tequilaria toasts National Tequila Day

Need something to get you over the hump this week?

Wednesday, July 24 just happens to be National Tequila Day, so it makes perfect sense to celebrate with an agave-based beverage.

Home to a collection of more than 160 tequilas, Blue Bat Kitchen & Tequilaria, 249 N. Water St., will be toasting the holiday with a day-long celebration.

From 11 a.m. to close, they'll roll out the tequila barrels with a variety of specials including $4 House 'Ritas, Tequila 'Ritas ($7) and Blue Bat margaritas (made with top shelf El Tesoro Platinum for $10).

There's also a tequila-infused menu to enjoy. A quick peek shows drunken mussels infused with El Charro Reposado, citrus & jalapeno ($12) and Salsa Borracha featuring El Charro infused salsa alongside a bag of seasoned chips ($9).

Prefer it sweeter? There's also the El Burro Esparkalo featuring white peach and lime shaved ice, tajin and Sparkle Donkey Blanco ($11) or margarita lime bars for $3.95.

If you get there early, you might even get a free mini 'rita. They're giving them away to the first 100 guests to step over the tequilaria's threshold.
