February 22nd is National Margarita Day. I said it before, in my post for No-Bake Chocolate Creamsicle Pie, but isn’t it great that we live in a world where we dedicate a day to a particular foodstuff? It reminds us to stop sweating the small stuff; just take a break and enjoy the simpler things.
This day is special, though, because–well, you know–margaritas!
Most of the time, if I’m going to have a margarita it’s got to be the classic: tequila, triple sec and lime juice (maybe a little agave) in a salt-rimmed glass.There’s something undeniably reassuring about the sharp spike of the lime, the peppery bite of the tequila, and the saline crunch of the salt. Some chili laden guacamole and tortilla chips and I’m happy. That said, I love the subtle sweetness, and gentle tropical flavor coconut brings to things. So without any further ado, I present my Coconut Margarita. Invite a few people over to help celebrate. It is a holiday after all.
