Today is National Tequila Day and I have the PERFECT cocktail for you. The only thing that you need to know *right now* is that it does require some shopping on your part to get the various kinds of tomatoes to accomplish the Bloody Maria Ice Cubes, the chilis or spices along with freezing time.
The best part of this recipe is that you can make more than a few trays of these spicy ice cubes and keep them in the freezer for other similar drinks. They are worthy of many rounds of cocktails.
