Tequila! For many of us, drinking it means sloshing down a cheap shot of clear liquid -- quickly followed by lick of salt and a bite from a lime wedge to wash that bitter taste away.

Long gone are the days, however, when Jose Cuervo and Sauza were the only tequila options at the bar. Today, we can actually enjoy this Mexican-born spirit in a cocktail or two thanks to an emerging array of small-batch, specialty spirits. And what better way to celebrate than tomorrow, July 24, better known as National Tequila Day.

Make a Pitcher of 100 Montaditos Sangria For Your July Fourth Picnic

Sangria to celebrate July Fourth? Si!
The July Fourth weather forecast is calling for yet another 90 degree day with a million percent humidity.

The good news? Other than the usual afternoon boomers, it looks like we won't get rained out. The bad news? It's going to be hot and muggy. You know what you need? In ice cold, refreshing pitcher of sangria.

What's that, you say? Sangria isn't patriotic enough for you to serve on Independence Day? May we remind you that it was King Ferdinand of Spain who financed Christopher Columbus' journey to the New World.

With that in mind, here's a recipe for sangria, courtesy of 100 Montaditos. Make it at home in ten minutes flat or drink it there for $4 a mug or $10 a pitcher.

Tea is the ultimate comfort drink.

When you're sick, it can soothe the throat and jump-start the immune system.

In the dead of winter, it's sure to warm you up from the inside and conjure images of balmy days.

When it's hotter than a billy goat's ass in a pepper patch, a glass of iced tea will cool you down and distract your mind from the blistering heat.

But like all consumable beverages, even tea is better with a bit of booze.

In honor of National Iced Tea Month (June), we've asked Tsukuro for some alcohol-infused recipes from its tea cocktail menu.
