Happy National Margarita Day!
Surely you've encountered the usual varieties of the margarita -- whether straight up, on the rocks or slushed, with a salted or unsalted rim, the standard drink usually takes a base of tequila, orange liqueur and lime juice. And while the classics are eternally refreshing and tasty, like photographer Beurremanie, we like a little more spike with these wintertime renditions.
If you're feeling adventurous, try these unique margarita recipes yourself -- or head over to your favorite happy hour joint today.
