How To Celebrate These Fun National Days
National Mango Day, July 22
Summertime is the best time to dig into a nice, juicy mango. Originating in countries like India and Africa. The African mango (Irvingia gabonensis) is a tree native to tropical West African forests and is praised for its fiber and protein-filled seeds. The orange-yellow mango is available across the globe. Have your own international feast today! Try making a mango lassi drink that originated in the Indian culture. Enjoy a hearty dish of African mango seasoned chicken. Dive into dessert with a Thai-inspired icebox mango pie!
National Day of the Cowboy, July 23
One of the most famous cowboys that ever lived was Nat Love, who could lasso steer and shoot straighter than them all!

National Tequila Day, July 24
Life is about to get smooth, thanks to Tiffany Hainesworth, the First African-American woman to solely own her own tequila brand! This federal worker/entrepreneur has released T’Capri Tequila. Hainesworth traveled and worked alongside Jimadors in Agaves fields in Jalisco, Mexico, to learn and oversee how her tequila was made, from farm to glass. It’s made from 100% Blue Weber agave, natural yeast, and volcanic-filtered well water from the distillery’s estate, with absolutely no additives of any kind. T’Capri is available for shipping via its website www.tcapritequila.com to most states. It’s also available in Total Wine Stores in Maryland, Georgia, Texas and Florida. Follow the brand @TCapritequila.
