I fully intend on celebrating with a Mexican feast complete with a pitcher of spiked liquid deliciousness--once I put the kids to bed, of course. (T-minus three hours until Mama's night in!). Here are some unique margarita recipes to inspire.

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.
