Friday is National Margarita Day. It might seem strange that this tequila-fueled holiday takes place in the midst of winter, but if you enjoy this classic cocktail, you’ll know that there’s really no wrong time to enjoy it. It doesn’t matter if the sun is shining and we’re wearing tank tops, shorts, and sandals or if the snow is falling and we’re adorned in a full snowsuit.

The drink itself is classic and simple. It usually consists of tequila, lime juice, and triple sec (or any orange-flavored liqueur) in a margarita glass with a salt rim. But just because the basic cocktail is simple, that doesn’t stop bartenders from ramping it up with jalapeños, tamarind, and various other flavors. Check out some of our favorites below.
