National Margarita Day | Patron con Fresca – The Foodie Patootie

National Margarita Day | Patron con Fresca

Happy National Margarita Day! A day I’m sure many of you are celebrating today. How convenient that it falls on a weekend this year… 😉

I love margaritas, but I prefer flavors like strawberry and mango, or a nice spicy variety. Most of the time I have frozen margaritas, as opposed to on the rocks. I usually opt for nothing on the rim, and only sugar if I do decide on having it. Salt on the rim will ruin a margarita for me. I know, I’m not normal.

Margaritas remind me of beach bars. I can’t think of another drink I’d rather be sipping on than a margarita when I am spending a couple of hours by the sand in the sunshine. They are always tasty and refreshing, a perfect drink for the ideal Florida day.

In fact, if it wasn’t so overcast and gloomy out, I would phone a friend and ask them to accompany me for one of these beauties right now. Le sigh, Florida, le sigh. Can’t you brighten up today?!

Thankfully, we have plans with Nichole and her husband tonight to celebrate at one of the best Mexican restaurants in town.

Have a great, boozy-filled day, everybody!

    Same here…I hate salt on the rim. My favorite? Just a classic, well made margarita on the rocks with a quality tequila. Cheers!

      Yes, you have to have a quality tequila!! I am fine with a classic margarita, but I prefer flavors. I had a frozen pomegranate one at Miguel’s Saturday night!

    Hope you enjoyed your celebration – so what is best Mexican in town?

      Miguel’s is one of the best! That’s where we went and had a great time. I also love Green Lemon on South Howard, but they are less authentic, lol.

    Mmm, when can we go again?! You know I am always down for a perfect margarita!

    Dude! I don’t like salt on my margarita glass rim either! So I guess we both are…abnormal in that respect. I sometimes ask for sugar instead 🙂 Weird too, b/c I love sweet and savory…but not with my margs. I love this recipe…looks oh so sweet and simple. Will have to make it sometime soon 🙂 Cool pictures too….making me thirsty!
