Margaritas are Classic but Sugary

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.
