Monday, February 22nd, was National Margarita Day, so we thought we’d share our five favorite winter margarita recipes along with some fête-chic ways to serve them at your next fiesta. While stories abound about who actually invented the margarita, we’re chalking it up to a salty Texas socialite named Margarita Sames who created it in 1948 at her Acapulco villa. Regardless of who kicked things off, with Americans consuming an average of 185,000 margaritas per hour (source: Brown Forman), we don’t need a straw poll to tell us that it’s one of the most ordered cocktails in the country. It may still be winter, but these five tantalizing takes on the sweet and sour classic are sure to get things muy caliente. And don’t forget to add some spice to how you serve your margaritas — they look as chic in a Champagne coupe or tumbler as they do in a traditional margarita glass.
