How to Celebrate National Margarita Day

Margaritas may pair best with a tropical beach, or a summer soirée, but why should the drink be banished to only enjoy during warmer days? In fact, the middle of a cold long winter is when you need the pick-me-up a margarita can offer the most. Luckily, February 22nd has become known as National Margarita Day which will give you the perfect excuse to indulge!

Espolón Tequila

Margaritas are usually made with silver tequila, and while you can use any brand you want, we think Espolón Tequila will do the job.

Even better, they have cocktail recipes showcasing their tequilas that will keep the party going year-round.

Hurom Blenders

If frozen margaritas are more your speed, you’ll need a blender that stands up to your expectations. Hurom’s Hexa Power High Speed blender packs a lot of power into its convenient countertop size. Pre-programmed settings, including Ice Crush mode, will take the question out of for how long and how strongly to blend your ingredients.

Mission Chips and Dips 

If you’re planning to indulge on drinks for the day, you’ll need something to snack on. Of course, the best compliment to your margarita would be a classic serving of chips and salsa. Mission offers a selection of tortilla chips, that come in triangles and rounds, but have changed the game with their tortilla strips. These lengthy strips were made especially with dipping in mind. And what will you be dipping those chips into? Mission also offers salsa, cheese dip and queso guaranteeing there’s something for everyone at the party.

Party City
