Shots, Shots, Shots: Where to Drink Like George Clooney in NYC and LA

Tomorrow is bound to be the most turnt up food and drink holiday of the year: National Tequila Day. Our new favorite tequila on the market is Casamigos, which we’re fans of for many reasons, the most obvious being that its made by George Clooney. He and his pal Rande Gerber love tequila so much they made their own, just one of the perks of being a rich and famous silver fox. Two hotspots in New York and LA, Irvington and Toca Madera, are mixing up crafty tequila cocktails with Casamigos, so what better way to get in the National Tequila Day spirit than by drinking what George Clooney drinks? Check out the recipes below, and find out Clooney’s favorite tequila punch and sangria recipes here.
