Friday will mark one of the best Happy Hour celebrations around town because it is National Margarita Day.  The popular lime and tequila libation will be consumed at various bars and restaurants rimmed with salt, or without, or by the pitcher.  This well-liked concoction is a crowd pleaser, for pure agave is low in sugar and has no carbohydrates making it a guilt-free cocktail.  There are many reasons to love margaritas, and we have listed 7.  How else can you explain a harmonious balance of sweet and sour with just the right amount of tequila!  Below is a curated list of tequila- based fusions to honor National Margarita Day.   To stir things up, add Mezcal instead of tequila to the cocktail, which involves a combination of agave plants and features a smoky, botanical savor.
