The only two margarita recipes you'll ever need. period.

Fun Fact: In college, one summer after a terrible semester, I received my grades and my friends and I decided drinking was in order to cope with the terrible-ness that were our grades. Drink of choice: Tequila...and WAY TOO MUCH of it. In fact so much of it, I couldn't even smell tequila for about 5 years after that without wanting to vomit. (This made bartending life really fun.. ) However, I've come a long way since then and slowly made my way back to loving tequila for all that it is.
SO, In honor of my favorite fake holiday: National Margarita day, I took one for the team, (LOL) and whipped up some fun new margs to try and am sharing the recipes right here! Both were amazing, both satisfied the spicy and sweet palette and you should DEFINITELY make these for yourself.
