A Sophisticated Twist on the Tequila Soda

It’s National Tequila Day and we’re ready to celebrate.

If The Coveteur team has a signature drink, it definitely involves tequila. We might have even cleaned out an entire bar’s worth of the spirit while on a certain company “retreat” upstate—that’s how much we love it. So it goes without saying that we’ll be celebrating National Tequila Day, mostly because we celebrate nearly every day if/when we pour ourselves a drink. And this twist on our traditional cocktail order (literally just tequila and soda and maybe a squeeze of lime if we’re feeling fancy) courtesy of Navy Beach (our go-to Montauk watering hole) gave our old faithful a much-needed facelift. We hereby invite all of you to celebrate with us.
