Today is National Tequila Day, and to that we say ole! Here are some spots where you can find a good cocktail to celebrate.

Petty Cash: Not only does this Beverly Boulevard restaurant have excellent updated twists on Mexican street food, but they have a killer cocktail program. It should come as no surprise, since it's overseen by aces barman Julian Cox and his sidekick Nick Meyer. A great tequila-based tipple is a twist on a classic daisy cocktail, made spicy to satisfy even the most frivolous of tequila drinkers. It's called the Yalldontevenknowit, and it's made with fresh lemon, citrus spiked agave curaçao, añejo tequila, and house made habañero tincture. Drink up.

Gladstone's: Remember how much we loved being bathed in George Clooney's Casamigos tequila over at the spa at the Four Seasons in Beverly Hills? Well, we got to take a couple sips too, and it turns out it's freaking amazing. You can get a taste tonight at Gladstone's. The Malibu beachside spot is offering 2-for-1 Casamigos Tequila margaritas all day today in honor of National Tequila Day. Flavors include hand-muddled Original, Mango, Blackberry.

Casa Vega: We think that the margaritas are some of the best in the City, so it'd be safe to order up one of those if you can get a spot at the bar. The classic Studio City establishment will also be offering $5 Mexican Mules made with the aforementioned Casamigos tequila, ginger beer, agave, and fresh limes. There's plenty of tequila behind the bar to drink neat too, like Julio 1942 Anejo, Cazadores Commemorativo Anejo, Cabo Wabo Reposado, and Patron Silver.

The Corner Door:Head Bartender Beau du Bois is mixing up tequila cocktails over at Culver City's Corner Door, including one named That Girl is Dangerous, made with Reposado Tequila, Aperol, Lemon Juice, Vanilla Orgeat. More like dangerously delicious.

Las Perlas: Housed on Downtown L.A.'s Spring Street, this agave-focussed bar is home to one of our editor's favorite cocktails. They also have an insane selection of agave-based spirits to choose from. And if you end up drinking to much, you can always go across the way to Cole's for a French dip.
