Sip: Honey Thyme Margarita
It’s National Margarita Day, friends!!! And it’s Friday. So, that means we’re officially in the best mood ever. I was actually born on Cinco de Mayo, so margaritas are permanently marked into my social calendar for the rest of my life, but that’s still a bunch of months away… that’s why I’m so happy February 22nd and National Margarita Day exist.
Strange timing, right? Because margaritas - however they’re prepared - just seem like standard sunny-time sips. But when you consider it just a bit more: limes, Cointreau, tequila, salt… it’s all stuff that can be drunk any time of the year. Yes, there’s nothing quite as refreshing as an icy, salt or sugar-rimmed rendition that just drinks like summer, but that’s why we loveeee food and lifestyle bloggers and cocktail influencers. They give us all the inspiration for mixing up margs that work in winter, spring, summer or fall.

We rounded up 11 recipes that we just had to share, because these drinks are so damn pretty. Literally, my mouth waters just looking at them.
And since Instagram has been flooded with bridal feeds boasting those cute mini Patron bottle and tiny taco app shots, we thought it’d only be appropriate to mention a few of our favorite margarita moments for weddings.
The perfect pair pass out.

Yes, mini tacos and mini margaritas. Cocktail hour was made for this dynamic duo.
Another crowd-pleasing match.

Okay, so not every guest is going to love tequila (I mean WTF, but it’s okay), but you’ll at least have something to please the other half if you can set up a margarita and cerveza station. Throw in a mariachi band and you’re set!
When just the glasses work.

When there are kids involved or just a bunch of hungry AF guests, a nacho wall complete with giant margarita glasses works juuuust right.
Scroll down for all the drinks you can (or should) make tonight, and if you haven’t considered your signature cocktail yet, any one of these would work!! Especially for your toasts (if you aren’t champ fans).
