Oh, today is a day you’re going to want to mark in your calendar in perpetuity. Yes, February 22nd is a beautiful day. It’s National Margarita Day, people. And we’re celebrating with some bright and colourful tipples! Of course, we’re sharing. We’re wonderful like that. After all, these concoctions are special. They’re made with George Clooney and Rande Gerber’s ultra-premium Casamigos tequila (that’s Mr. Amal and Mr. Cindy Crawford, to you…).

Need your very own selection of juicy margarita recipes to celebrate your tequila-filled day?  Ready to stray from the straight and traditional classic Margarita? Try slurping one of these unique twists, incorporating fresh flavours like pineapple, watermelon, and cilantro. Or spice things up with some cucumber and jalapeno and get hopping.

Listen: Today might be National Margarita Day, but in all honesty, we think every day is. Right? RIGHT?
