Happy National Tequila Day! Yep, that's a thing. And, it's on a Friday. To celebrate, Zippia released a new study that features a breakdown of how much tequila per year all 50 states consume. The study found that tequila is loved most in Nevada, Colorado, Arizona, California, and Maryland. But what about here in Iowa?

Turns out, we don't drink too much tequila. Like, at all actually. Out of all 50 states, Iowa ranks 46 in tequila consumption. Meaning, we're not likely to be going 10 rounds with Jose Cuervo... We drink roughly 0.42 bottles a year. That compared to Nevada, where the average drinker consumes 2.3 whole bottles a year. Eek.

Indiana, Utah, West Virginia and Pennsylvania were the only states drinking less tequila than us per year. Make an exception today, if you're of age and drink. Have a margarita. Or two. Come on, it's a holiday! Apparently. PS, someone should put out a Busch Light consumption study. Bet we'd do well there.
