National Margarita Day + A few good recipes

¡Salud! It’s National Margarita Day, Y’all! It is celebrated each year on February 22nd.

I wanted to write up some great post with some delicious margarita recipes for you. The reality is: I don’t make margaritas. I just drink ’em! Not like everyday but on occasion. And on a few of those occasions, I just happened to take a photo of them before they were gone.

Recently, I celebrated a nice steak dinner with mi esposo for Valentine’s Day but first, we had margaritas. Mi esposo had his usual … top shelf tequila margarita on the rocks. He is the tequila connoisseur. I just take his lead and add something fruity to it! Mine was a clever concoction of pomegranate-type of margarita (shaken) served in a martini glass (delicioso, sí but too complicated to remember what they called it.)

This was a simple margarita on the rocks with fresh mint and lots of limes. The waiter at a different steak house suggested it. I loved it! Again, my husband treated the family to a delicious dinner and I treated myself to a margarita after a long day of motherhood!

Ahhhh … La Gloria, one of my favorite eateries in San Antonio. The Mexican food is original from Chef Johnny Hernandez and the margaritas are frozen and strong! See, it doesn’t have to be a steak dinner, I’ll have ’em with my taquitos tambien. This is what a Mom’s Night Out looks like (on occasion). Thanks to my fabulous mommy friends, we will be celebrating National Margarita Day at La Gloria tonight!  Where will you be?
