There’s a tendency to associate Margaritas with Cinco de Mayo, and while there’s certainly nothing wrong with that association, that’s not actually Margarita Day. No, National Margarita Day is February 22. And when you think about it, there’s a certain logic to having it in February. Winter is starting to head out the door, but not fast enough for most. It's the perfect time for something that reminds us of warm weather.
If you’re yearning for warm weather, doesn’t a Margarita sound like a lovely idea? Even better, there are dozens of Margarita variations, which means there’s bound to be something for everyone.
Do you have a hankering for the classics? Then look no further than the classic Margarita recipe. There may be plenty of updated versions, but this is still the best.
Or maybe you prefer a slightly fruity touch? In that case, you should check out the best Strawberry Margarita recipe around.
For some, a cocktail isn’t complete with a little touch of elegance. If you fall into that category, head over to the Chambord Margarita.
Tequila, of course, is Mexican, but that doesn’t mean ruling out a bit of European flair. If you prefer the Mediterranean to the Carribean, the Italian Margarita recipe is right up your alley. Or sea, as the case may be.
And last, but far from least, sometimes the perfect Margarita is the one that’s enjoyed with friends. If you want to whip up Margaritas for a crowd but don’t want to spend all evening tied to a shaker, then you need the Easy Everyday Margarita.
