Cheers! It's National Margarita Day
Of all the wacky food holidays out there, I'm pretty sure that today, Feb. 22 -- National Margarita Day -- is my favorite. Who came up with this "holiday?" I'll bet that person had a financial interest in tequila. But who cares!
I, personally, would like to offer that person a heart-felt "gracias" for giving me an excuse to drink a margarita today.
That's right, I consider it my duty -- and yours -- to celebrate. You could go the tried-and-true route and have a traditional margarita (with salt, on the rocks, from scratch, please -- don't even consider a mixer). But the L.A. Times Test Kitchen would also like to offer up three twists on the margarita, including this, your recipe for the day: blood orange jalapeno margarita.
If you know of any events to celebrate this hallowed holiday -- or you have a favorite margarita recipe to share -- please let us know all about it in the comments section below.
