It's National Margherita Day - 22nd February

Sipped, slurped and savoured by millions, the classic Margarita has been a favourite amongst cocktail lovers since the 1930's, and Monday 22nd February marks National Margarita Day, where numerous bars around London will be offering their own takes on the tequila based classic.

When it comes to Margaritas, the popular Barrio group know their stuff. They've been quenching thirsts with mouth-watering Margaritas for years. Experts when it comes to tequila, they understand the trick with this one is to keep it simple, using just a few ingredients to provide that smooth and deliciously tart flavour.
