From our friends at MXDC Cocina Mexicana...

Executive Chef/Partner Todd English and Mixologist Anthony Tavara are excited to present the 25 tequilas of Christmas at MXDC Cocina Mexicana, located at 600 14th Street, NW, Washington, DC 20005.

Mixologist Anthony Tavara has put together a carefully selected menu of imported tequilas to be enjoyed each day leading up to December 30th. Tequila lovers and newcomers alike can sip on blancos, reposados, añejos, and extra añejos, as well as enjoy a selection of house-made margaritas and palomas. These unique tequilas, which are the perfect way to break from American tradition and toast to the holidays in true Mexican style, will be available beginning on December 1st through December 30th (with the exclusion of nightly happy hour, as well as Sundays and Christmas Day when the restaurant is closed.)

Guests can experience a new tequila each day throughout the month of December at a discounted 20% off. Tequilas range in price from $8 to $13.60 per shot with the discount. A complete list of the 25 tequilas is posted below...
