‘Jalisco Style’ Is the Beer Hack You Need to Celebrate National Tequila Day

National Tequila Day is July 24th. It’s a magical day, one that many might be afraid of partaking in. Instead of taking that shot straight, there’s a trick to get it down without the pain.

Here’s a hint: Put it in a beer.

This nifty pro tip is called “Jalisco Style,” which is quite fitting considering that tequila is named after Tequila, Jalisco, the city it originated in.

But on to the specifics. First step, grab an Estrella Jalisco, since this beer is rooted in Jalisco, Mexico.

Second, stick the rim in some Tajin. Drown it in Tajin, even.

Third, and this is the key, add a splash of tequila in your beer. Don’t look at me like that. Trust, it works.

Fourth, squeeze a lime in there. Maybe two, if you’re really feeling crazy.

That’s it!

Now there’s no excuse to not participate in a national holiday such as the one upon us.

Check out the video above to catch a visual of how this is done, and the tasty end result.

If you’re convinced that bottle of liquor with a worm floating at the bottom is genuine tequila, you might want to check this out before you take the plunge. Most likely a marketing play, the worm is only bottled in mezcal, another distilled agave spirit. While tequila comes exclusively from the blue agave plant, mezcal can be distilled from other varieties of the agave and maguey plant.

Still, that doesn’t mean the worm isn’t tasty. It actually, has a smart, pickled flavor that makes for a satisfying snack. Trust.

The infographic below explores more little-known tequila facts, such as the proper way to chase your tequila (if you must) and the difference between tequila and mixto. It’s some crafty knowledge to drop in your pocket this weekend and will come in handy next time you’re trying to tell the difference between Patron and Jose Cuervo.
