It may be a grey, miserable Monday in February, but that's no reason not to get into the festive spirit of National Margarita Day. The team at Casamigos Tequila have shared their recipe for the perfect margarita cocktail, made using 100% Blue Weber agave tequila grown in the Mexican highlands. Balanced with zesty citrus and smooth agave nectar, the method makes for a truly classic serve.
