Today is National Margarita Day. This day is observed annually on February 22nd.
I believe the great thing about Margarita is that it’s one of the easiest drinks to make from scratch and a good margarita depends on the quality of its ingredients and using the best tequila one can find.
We asked co-owner of Bars Equipped Mobile Bars, Ndumiso Mncwabe to share with us a simple recipe on how to make the perfect Margarita.
“Margaritas are a dream and there are so many ways of getting it right. The simplest way is always the best way”, said Mncwabe.
Below is Mncwabe’s simple and perfect Margarita recipe.
