February 22 is National Margarita Day!
My adoration of cocktails is legendary (or should be) by now. 😍
Nonetheless, I don’t know when my love affair with Margaritas actually began but I believe it started after my victory of tossing back Tequila shots on a dare. I was young and stupid but I was still standing… and the guy face-down on the floor had failed miserably to prove his point that “girls can’t handle their liquor”.
Anyway, if Margarita is on the menu anywhere in the world, it’s going down my throat sooner rather than later and regardless of the meal.
As you can see by the pictures below, I’ve had Margaritas all over the world.

Did you notice there are no pictures from Mexico? Well, that’s because having a Margarita in Mexico is nearly a daily occurrence whenever I visit that wonderful country. It is the birthplace of both Tequila and the Margarita.
Honestly, it should no longer be a secret that I love a good margarita 💃🏾; they are at the top of my all-time favorite cocktail list and I’ve had them every which way you can think of. However, I truly prefer this Classic Margarita with no salt.
Classic Margarita recipe from Liquor.com:
- 2 ounces blanco tequila
- 1/2 ounce orange liqueur
- 1 ounce lime juice, freshly squeezed
- 1/2 ounce agave syrup
- Garnish: lime wheel
- Garnish: kosher salt (optional)
- Add tequila, orange liqueur, lime juice and agave syrup to a cocktail shaker filled with ice, and shake until well-chilled.
- Strain into a rocks glass over fresh ice.
- Garnish with a lime wheel and kosher salt (optional).
