It's Grey's Anatomy frontrunners Meredith Grey and Christina Yang's drink of choice -- and it can also make glorious addition to your wedding! Of course, we're talking about tequila. And it doesn't have to be a summer-only or beach-exclusive drink -- whether it's in frozen margarita form or flying solo in a shot glass with a side of salt and lime, this party-starting drink is worth year-round recognition. In honor of National Tequila Day (arguably the best day of the year) check out these five ways to bring the beverage to your wedding. Bottoms up, Knotties!
