A Thirsty Thursday Special: National Margarita Day

It’s National Margarita Day y’all! The fact that it’s Friday and you now another excuse to down a marg at happy hour… dreamlike for all you thirsty people out there! Personally, margs are my absolute favorite happy hour drink so I hands down think the cocktail deserves an entire day of celebration. Here are a variety of recipes that are sure to please the masses!

The Classic Happy Hour Frozen Margarita

1 (6 oz) can frozen limeade concentrate
6 oz tequila
2 oz triple sec

This is my go to recipe! Fill the blender with crushed ice and pour in all ingredients. I usually measure the liquor by filling the can about halfway with triple sec and completely for the tequila to make it easier. Blend together, add salt to the rim of your glass and pour! Makes 4 servings.

On the Rocks

1 cup sweet and sour mix
½ cup triple sec
¾ cup gold tequila
2 tbsp + 2tsp brandy based orange liqueur (ex: Grand Marnier)
1 lime, quartered

In a blender, combine all ingredients except limes and blend until smooth. Rim your glass with salt, pour the mixture, and squeeze a quarter of lime into each glass. Enough for 4 cocktails!

Ultimate Strawberry Margarita

8 oz frozen sliced strawberries in syrup
4 oz frozen limeade concentrate
6 oz tequila
2 oz triple sec

Like the Classic Marg but with a fruit twist! Fill the blender with crushed ice, add in all the ingredients listed and blend until smooth. Add sugar to the rim of your glass for some extra sweetness! Also makes 4 servings.

Beer Margarita

1 (12oz) fluid can frozen limeade concentrate
12 oz tequila
12 oz water
12 oz beer
1 lime cut in wedges for garnish

What a heavenly combo right?! Pour all ingredients into a large pitcher and stir until blended. Let the limeade melt a little bit, add ice and garnish with the lime. Perfect for guys who think margs are just “too girly!” Make a ton of servings! (Is it pool season yet?)

Of course, there are plenty of variations of margaritas so pick your fancy and get to celebrating! It’s National Marg Day, Marg Day, gotta down margs on Marg Day. Okay, I’ll stop. Happy National Margarita Day y’all!
