We’re not exactly fans of single day food holidays at Food Republic. The way we see it, we don’t particularly need an excuse to enjoy a diet-busting milkshake or snack on some perfectly charred strips of bacon. But then we arrive at National Margarita Day, celebrated annually on February 22. We’re talking an official website that lets you know where to find the best parties in each U.S. state and counts over 30,000 Facebook fans. Pretty serious stuff here, folks. In honor of the tequila-happy festivities, we’ve rounded up our six favorite margarita recipes for you. Cheers!
While we’re at it, we’ll point our fellow New Yorkers in the direction of Nitehawk Cinema in Williamsburg, which is featuring $5 margaritas while screening Mexican films.
