Happy National Tequila Day! Ways To Commemorate Mexico's Magical Elixir (PICTURES, VIDEO)

Love it or hate it, today is the day we celebrate the Mexican elixir responsible for many a margarita migraine.

Said to trace back to the Aztec Gods themselves, tequila is a distilled beverage made from the blue agave plant.

This special day comes but once a year, so it's a perfect excuse to crack out the shot glasses and get pouring.

However, if you’re not one to imbibe, we’ve found lots of other ways for you to celebrate the day – whether its watching Tequila Sunrise, soaking your feet in the stuff or simply gawking at a sexy shooter girl.

You're welcome.
