Just in case you didn’t know, because I didn’t know until last week, today is actually National Margarita Day! Soo… I just had to post a Margarita on Margarita Day. It didn’t seem right not to!

When I started on my Margarita adventure this past weekend I was aiming for a creamy Coconut Margarita. Two to three try’s later I came to the realization that the Coconut Margarita was not making an appearance on my blog today. It needed to be fine tuned and perfected before you got your hands on it. 🙂

Luckily I created the perfect Classic Margarita Recipe for you today!

Every body needs a good classic Margarita Recipe. Nothing fancy. Simple and Classic.

This recipe only has five ingredients in it but hands down the best Margarita I’ve ever had! It has the perfect combination of zesty and sweet!

The one thing I’ve learned is use the good liquor!!!! I can’t say it enough. Good liquor equals good margarita, cheap liquor equals mediocre margarita.

I don’t know about you. But whenever I’ve gone to restaurant and ordered their “happy hour” Margarita I ALWAYS end up with a headache the next day. Do you know why? It’s because they use the cheap liquor!

So please do me AND you a favor and buy the good tequila.

One of my favorite things about this margarita is how smooth it is. You almost don’t taste the liquor. In most margaritas you get a “bite” from the lime juice and tequila but the agave and fresh orange juice smooth this cocktail out for one dynamite sip!

It’s time to celebrate National Margarita Day with this Ultimate Classic Margarita Recipe!

Bon Appetit my friends … or shall I say cheers!
