Five Recipes for National Margarita Day

Tomorrow is National Margarita Day. It's like a warm up for the Drinking Holiday season that includes St. Patrick's Day and Cinco de Mayo, the American holiday that celebrates Mexican culture by consuming massive amounts of tequila and tacos. Being that Booze League HQ is a Southern California based outfit, we are well versed in the year-round consumption of the most wonderful of concoctions: The Margarita.  It also means we can be kind of annoying, elitist snobs about margaritas (as The Commish's Rio de Janeiro margarita experience shows). While we love our margaritas any day of the year here in the Southland, we up our game when it comes to National Margarita Day and Cinco de Drinko.

The good news is that you too can be a Margarita Pro, regardless of where you live. Here are five recipes for some delicious margaritas that will take your party, or "fiesta", to a new level.
