One of the best days of the year is coming up Monday. No, not Christmas or Labor Day or your birthday (like we'd know when that is); it's National Tequila Day. We're getting buzzed just thinking about all the agave goodness coming our way — because it's perfectly OK to have one four tequila drinks at lunch when it's a national holiday all about the spirit.

Luckily, we found a place that can help you soak up all that spirited fun with its amazing barbecue. Ten 50 BBQ's mango margarita ($10) will be our poison this Monday. It combines Cointreau, mango, basil and housemade sweet-and-sour mix and adds Patrón Silver Tequila for a smooth, fruity finish.

If celebrating a tequila holiday on a Monday night doesn't work for you, worry not: This is on Ten 50's permanent menu.
