Margaritas may be closely linked with Cinco de Mayo, but National Margarita Day actually falls on Feb. 22. We've rounded up three recommendations to celebrate the tequila-based treasure. For the scoop on hundreds more drink specials, visit guidelive.com/night-life.
Mexican Sugar Cocina y Cantina
Home to what its website calls "the definitive Southwest tequila library," Mexican Sugar will celebrate with a margarita flight consisting of three of its best-selling margaritas in miniature form for $14. The three 1-ounce pours include a classic margarita, made with Avión Silver tequila; the Machete (a fresh watermelon and serrano pepper concoction), also made with Avión Silver; and the Hibiscus, which is made with Avión Reposado.
7501 Lone Star Drive, Plano.
On the Border
Did you know that Dallas was home to the first frozen margarita machine (invented by restaurateur Mariano Martinez back in the '70s)? It's true. On Feb. 22, On the Border will feature its 12-ounce house frozen margarita for $2 a pop all day. If you're an on-the-rocks drinker, you can get that for $2, too. The house margarita features Corazón Blanco tequila, fresh lime and agave nectar.

The artisan pizza restaurant with four area locations is offering its signature hand-shaken margaritas for $5 all day. The drinks feature Cazadores Blanco tequila, Solerno blood orange liqueur, fresh-squeezed lime juice and agave nectar served on the rocks.
