Did you know that February 22 is National Margarita Day? To be honest, I didn't know either -- but I am always up for a good margarita! For years the Margarita has been my go-to drink. There's something absolutely refreshing about the mixture of lime and tequila -- either frozen or on the rocks -- with a salted rim.
Here are three of my favorite margaritas:
Classic Margarita at Dreams Riviera Cancun - Cancun, Mexico
When in Mexico, my beverage of choice is the margarita -- how could it not be? One of my favorites was this classic frozen margarita at Dreams Riviera Cancun in Cancun, Mexico. The best part? This and every other margarita I consumed was part of Dreams Unlimited-Luxury, where everything is included with your resort stay. ~It was almost too perfect to drink. Almost.
Avocado Margarita at La Cava del Tequila - EPCOT World Showcase, Walt Disney World
This half-empty photo of the Avocado Margarita at La Cava del Tequila in Epcot does not do this drink justice! I usually go for straight up tequila and lime mixture, but this unique concoction was calling my name. The smooth and creamy blend of tequila, melon liqueur, fresh avocado, agave nectar, and fresh lime juice was better than I ever could have imagined. As long as you dig avocados this margarita is a winner!
Classic Margarita at LuLu's - Gulf Shores, Alabama
LuLu's at Homeport is owned by Lucy Buffett -- Jimmy Buffett's sister. I figured if there every was a place to have a margarita, this was it ... and I was right! LuLu's has mastered the art of the perfect tequila-to-lime ratio that is often hard to achieve in a frozen drink. Truly delish!
Now that I've shared my top three margaritas, where are your favorites?
