February 22, also known as National Margarita Day, is a celebration of one of the most popular cocktails in the world. Our friends at Tequila Herradura have been making tequila since 1870, so this year they got a little creative with the classic marg. The result: The British Breakfast Margarita and the Mango Scotch Bonnet Margarita. Who said it needs to be 5 o’clock somewhere?
