Today might be the happiest Monday of all Mondays because it's National Margarita Day!! It's no secret that tequila is a household favorite here, after all I live with a guy who perfected his margarita years ago, who likely drinks at least one margarita a week. Which is why the other day, when he exclaimed that he just made the best margarita he's ever made, I knew I had to share it with you guys! And #PerfectMargarita is an understatement, 'cuz damn is it good.

"A great margarita has a fresh taste and nice balance of sweetness and tart lime flavor. Our recipe has just the right proportions of tequila, triple sec, freshly squeezed lime juice and homemade simple syrup to achieve that perfect flavor."
"The tart pink grapefruit makes a beautiful cocktail and is ultra-refreshing, add a generous squeeze of lime juice and a glug of Cointreau for some complexity and body, top it all off with a solid tequila and that is a drink worth drinking."
