Celebrating National Tequila Day

Besito (402 New York Ave., Huntington): Besito is

Besito (402 New York Ave., Huntington): Besito is one of LI's best Mexican restaurants, staying clear of the cliches and mixing a mean margarita. When the weather's warm, the experience is enhanced by the tables set up on the sidewalk of Huntington's bustling New York Avenue. Cool off with refreshing tableside guacamole, or turn up the heat with chipotle-glazed shrimp. More info: 631-549-0100, Credit: Newsday / Rebecca Cooney

In the immortal words, or word, by The Champs: "Tequila!"

Yes, Friday, July 24, is National Tequila Day.

To mark the calendar, the Besito restaurants in Huntington and Roslyn offer a special main course and complimentary tastings of Patron tequila from 3 to 6 p.m.

The main dish of the moment: a 1-1/2-pound lobster with Serrano chile and tequila cream salsa, mashed boniato, asparagus and crisp kale. Pair it with a glass of Casa Noble Anejo tequila, neat, of course.

You also may be in the running for a $200 Besito gift card via an Instagram contest.

Besito, 402 New York Ave., Huntington, 631-549-0100; and 1516 Old Northern Blvd., Roslyn, 516-484-3001.
