Tomorrow is National Taco Day -- a time to reflect on the glory and virtues of Mexico’s greatest gift to the world. Well, maybe second to Salma Hayek. In homage to this fabulous food from our neighbors to the south, we’ve contemplated and concluded that Tacos are actually better than Friendship. Here are the 7 reasons why, and the things to drink with them.

1. They’re there for you at all hours of the day... including breakfast

Lucien Albrecht Cremant de Alsace Brut Rose - “bright, bubbly, and enough acidity to foil your daily dose of 9 am bacon”
2. They’re sweet as chocolate

Casa Blanca Banyuls - “enough chocolatey notes in the glass to keep Willy Wonka satiated”
3. They make punny jokes, and they’re always happy to lend an ear

'08 Schloss Schonborn Erbacher Marcobrunn Riesling Spatlese a mere 8.0% abv, you won’t need to share this bottle with anyone or anything other than a delicious taco?
4. They’re cheesy and gooey, but they’re not overly emotional

'12 Tyler Chardonnay Bien Nacido With a Mexican name and history like Bien Nacido, how could this not be a perfect pairing? It’s also got beautiful richness and acidity
5. But they also have a spicy side, so things never get too mushy

'11 Barbet Saint Amour Domaine Des Billards - Plummy fruit and juiciness can counteract that spice and keep your BFF in check
6. They can be fishy, and even throw a little bit of shade, but you can always trust them

'12 Champalou Vouvray Fondraux - just a touch of sugar keeps it sweet and lively
7. If you find The One, you should put a ring on it
