Happy National Margarita Day (with a recipe)! The first margarita was created in 1938 in Mexico. They are so versatile with the flavors, blends, and ways of drinking. Have one on the rocks, blended like a slushie, with fruit, try a beergarita, or salted rim.
Read a couple of fun stories here on who actually created the first margarita.
