February 22nd is National Margarita Day (though, any Thursday will generally do just fine). To the surprise of no one, the exact lineage of National Margarita Day is a bit clouded in mystery, however, it is clear the goal; enjoy a refreshing Margarita with friends and family. Salud!
The Fancy A Drink staff’s consensus favorite modification to the classic Margarita is to substitute in Mezcal for the Tequila and up the amount of lime juice (unsweetened). The Mezcal brings a nice smokiness and the additional lime takes away some of the sweetness.
