National Margarita Day: Five Recipes to Try at Home

We're not breaking any news here, but South Florida is freaking hot.

Sure, we get a few cold fronts from time to time, but it's mid-February, and it's bright, sunny, and, frankly, a bit humid.

When it comes to refreshing alcoholic beverages, few concoctions compete with the margarita -- mojitos aside, it's like the unofficial drink of South Florida.

While it doesn't make sense throughout the rest of the country, tomorrow is national margarita day (we're assuming it's used as a mental means for escape from the cruel winter days).

How you choose to celebrate is totally on you: If you want to go out and score some deals, we have a handy guide or you can stay at home and mix those babies your own way.

For that, we have five margarita recipes for you to try on National Margarita Day.
