Well, it looks like it’s going to be another fine day.

Hola! It’s National Margarita Day, the perfect occasion to celebrate one of the most popular cocktails on the planet. While there are several theories as to who actually invented the margarita, we’re chalking it up to a salty Texas socialite named Margarita Sames, who whipped it up in 1948 at her Acapulco villa. While we tend to associate the margarita with summer sipping, it’s also a lovely cocktail to enjoy during the cooler months. Here are seven winter margarita recipes sure to make any cool-weather fête muy caliente. Salud!
