If it’s before noon and you’re craving a margarita today, clearly your body knows it’s National Margarita Day. Who knew there was a day specifically dedicated to celebrating the Mexican cocktail. I certainly didn’t. You’d think it would be closer to Cinco do Mayo than some random day in February. Oh well, at least there’s a good excuse to enjoy the cocktail without looking like an alcoholic.

Since our drink recipes posts do well, I reached out to our friends over at Sauza Tequila for some tasty cocktail suggestions. After all, the company is located in Tequila, a municipality of the state of Jalisco, Mexico. Who better to ask? Check out a few of them below.
