It's National Margarita Day, y'all! And that, my friends, calls for a celebration.

When it comes to this year-round fave, you can't go wrong with a classic Margarita: a touch of sweet, a lot of tart, and ohhhhh, so refreshing! So in honor of this very important national holiday, I've chosen to celebrate with this beauty created by Carolyn. It's a classic Marg with a fresh Florida twist, and I bet you a dollar that you can't drink just one!

And for those of you who aren't feeling the booze, not to worry! I've created a mocktail version of this recipe that has all of the flavor and none of the booze.
