If there is one thing I know I love, it is margaritas.... and any excuse to drink them! This Thursday, February 22nd is International Margarita Day! What better way to celebrate the boozy holiday than with the best tequila? Patrón is necessary, of course!
In honor of International Margarita Day, here's a fabulous recipe that will quench your thirst for an insanely satisfying margarita. It's a twist on the classic, created by LA's own Jorge Ortega.
