When I think of margaritas, I think of Hacienda, but even Hacienda can’t whip up a margarita quite like this delicious Blackberry Margarita Recipe!
Celebrate Margarita Day
Did you know that February 22 is National Margarita Day? That’s right, even margaritas have a day to celebrate. I don’t know about you, but we think a classic combination of tequila, triple sec and lime should be celebrated to its fullest.
If you are on the fence about celebrating National Margarita Day, here are 5 reasons you should change your mind:
#1 Tequila has health benefits
Tequila is one of the main ingredients in margaritas and believe it or not, can be good for your health. It boosts your metabolism and helps your body absorb calcium. It is also a great pain remedy.
#2 Margaritas Lower Blood Sugar
Tequila is made from the agave plant. The agave plant is a source of natural occuring sugar called agavina. This sugar actually activates your insulin production thus lowering your blood sugar.
#3 They go Perfect with Tacos
What better way to get your Mexican fix than with some tacos, guac, and chips. Any time you have Mexican food is a perfect time to whip up a margarita.
#4 It Could Keep You From Getting Sick
Ok, we aren’t entirely sure of this, but it sounds legit and good enough for us to say have a margarita. In the 1930s, doctors in Mexico would give people a concoction of .5 ounces of tequila, .5 ounces agave nector, and .5 ounces of fresh lime juice to fight off nasty colds.
#5 Its a Great Way to Relax
We don’t always have great reasons to sip a margarita and relax. With National Margarita Day, you have the perfect excuse to drink and relax with friends. We all need a little R&R from time to time.
