National Margarita Day

Apparently today is Margarita Day, a commercial holiday that I'm glad to celebrate! Read about it here on the Food Channel.

As a Texan, I'm blessed with easy access to these delicious drinks because Mexican food is a staple in our neck of the woods. Since I've had my fair share over the years, I consider myself qualified to share my favorite marg recipe.
We affectionately refer to them as Faux Ritas
Very simple...
1 can of frozen limeade
1 can (use the limeade can) of tequila - or less if you're pregnant...jk
1 can of diet sprite*
1 Corona light**

Stir everything in a pitcher and serve on the rocks, with  salt on the rim if you please. Welcome to light, fizzy goodness...but beware, since they are so tasty and refreshing, they can go down a little too easily!

* I've substituted a variety of things here including Sunkist and sparkling blood orange soda
** Any light beer will do the trick

I'm having a major case of the winter blues so I'd really like to just have a waiter bring me a margarita while sitting here.
