Salty and sweet. A classic combo and a winning recipe for a thirst-quenching cocktail. Hence, why I love me a good old-fashioned margarita. Tequila, fresh lime, Cointreau, and a salted rim. Easy-peasy and potent. Just the way I like it... Preferably on the rocks. Por favor.
Today is National Margarita Day. Yep, a whole 24 hours devoted to my drink of choice. And now that it's creeping up on 5 PM, let's pucker up and pour one in a big tall glass.
