Salt or no salt. Frozen or on the rocks. Flavored or basic. The margarita is a well-loved cocktail favorite by many, so it no surprise that there is a national holiday to celebrate this sweet and tangy libation. National Margarita Day is Sunday, February 22nd, and the experts behind Milagro tequila have shaken, stirred, poured, and tested hundreds of recipes to find their top three favorite margarita recipes for 2015 to celebrate National Margarita Day.

 

Milagro, one of the world’s leading tequila brands, combines the finest old-world techniques and traditions alongside modern technologies and processes to produce a superior product.
