National Margarita Day ~~ February 22nd
Classic Margarita
5 shots out of 5

I'm baaack!  That was sure a nice five days off.  I think after a year STRAIGHT of making cocktails every night that I deserve a vacation.  If you didn't know, tomorrow is National Margarita Day!  Like we need an excuse to have a margarita, right?  Not an excuse, just a reminder how wonderful margarita's really are.

I gave today's cocktail 5 shots out of 5.  I am EN-JOYING this cocktail right now.  If you don't already know, I am not a big tequila person......at all.  I searched and searched online and found a handful of classic margarita recipes and (after consulting with my husband) decided on this one that I found on Food & Wine.  This cocktail is a perfect blend of alcohol and sweetness to where those who do not like super sweet cocktails will like it, as well as those (like me) who don't care too much for tequila!  

I have a list of (including today's margarita) 10 different cocktails for you to choose from below that you can make tomorrow for NMD.  Depending on how brave you are, you are welcome to try more then one too!

Here is the recipe for a Classic Margarita:

  • 1 1/2 oz silver tequila
  • 3/4 oz cointraeu
  • 3/4 oz lime juice
  • 1/4 oz simple syrup
In a shaker, add ice and all of the ingredients above.  Shake and dump everything into your margarita glass.  Lift your glass up and salute to NMD!
