Today is National Margarita Day! Have you heard of this? I came to know about it only today, but who cares, every day is a good day to enjoy a drink. But if you enjoy the drink on the particular day it will be double fun. I love Margarita, but I have never got a chance to visit a restaurant and try it. I got a firsthand taste test when my friend Andrea, who worked as bartender, made if for us, and I fell in love with that drink forever. Occasionally I make margarita at home. I like fruity flavor, so usually make pineapple margarita.
