Hey party animals. Not that you needed any other reason to celebrate other than it being Friday, but we’ve got news: it’s National Tequila Day. And what better way to celebrate said holiday than with some amazing tequila cocktails and party tunes, all selected by the leader of tequila, Patrón?

This playlist comes from the artists featured in Patron’s ‘Mastering the Craft’ series, and is just the right well-rounded amount to suit everyone’s taste, kind of in the same way the cocktails we’ve selected are.

“Our integrated partnership with Rolling Stone’s ‘Mastering the Craft’ series showcases our deep commitment and respect of the art of the craft,” added Lee Applbaum, Global Chief Marketing Officer at Patrón Spirits. “Just as singers and songwriters express their artistry through music, ours is crafting the world’s finest tequila. That’s the art of Patrón.”

Also, if you haven’t yet, go and try out the brand new Patron Citronge Mango, released earlier this summer. Crafted from the highest-quality Ataulfo Mangos from the Mexican states, Nayarit & Chiapas, Patrón Citrónge Mango is filled with light citrus notes and a hint of pineapple and peach that will elevate any margarita this summer. It’s amaze.

And some bartending music for you to get your tequila on:
