Happy Margarita Day! New Margarita Recipes Enclosed

National Margarita Day

Did you know that Margarita Day is February 22? Did you know that bars throughout the US celebrate Margarita Day with special pricing and unique recipes?

Well, there is a Facebook page for National Margarita Day and an entire website dedicated to National Margarita Day! Who would have thunk?

We started cruising through the recipes and I have to say, there are likely 365 recipes for every day of the year! Wowza! Now that is true awesomeness.

The first recipe we want to try is the Cucumber Cilantro Margarita. This combo could make the margarita the skinniest happy hour drink ever. Tequila has less calories and burns more calories than vodka. Combine this with the healthiness of fresh cucumber and cilantro, and I think we may replace our protein shake for this baby.

Try it out and tell us what you think. We would love to hear if this flavor works for you.

Cucumber-Cilantro Margaritas

  • 8 slices cucumber
  • Small handful fresh cilantro (3/4 of a cup, loosely packed)
  • 1 1/2 to 2 shots reposada tequila
  • 1 shot triple sec
  • 1 shot fresh lime juice
  • Dash of sugar if you like it sweeter

Combine all of the above in a blender with a handful of ice and blend until smooth. Pour the mixture into two lowball glasses, margarita glasses or if you like large martini glasses. Garnish and serve immediately. This recipe makes 2 margaritas or one really big margarita.
