I love Chicago. If I thought I could handle the winters they face there, I would seriously be tempted to trek up north. However since there is a reason I live in the South, I will settle for visiting as often as possible.

It’s not very often I get to have companions on my trips, but when I do the company is wonderful. One of my best friends, Kassi, and I were catching up over dinner in February when I mentioned an upcoming trip to Chicago in April. We talked about how much fun it would be if she could join me and before we knew it, she bought herself a ticket that night.

Happy National Margarita Day! Yes, this is a real holiday (I promise I did not make it up). February 22nd is a day where all margarita lovers can raise their glass and cheers to some tequila either on the rocks or frozen.

There’s nothing I love more than a cold margarita accompanying warm cheese dip or some damn good tacos. And considering I’m probably not the only person with a love for them, I compiled a list of 5 margarita recipes that’ll make you want to break out your cocktail shaker for happy hour.
