Margaritas, Mock-tails, and More!

Don’t you just love obscure food-related holidays? This Monday, February 22, is National Margarita Day, and we’re declaring a week-long celebration!

One of our favorite citrus fruits is in season, and lucky for you, it makes for one delicious and photogenic margarita!

Cara Caras may look like ordinary navels, but their flesh is a bright pink color. They’re sweeter and less acidic than the classic navel with a hint of red berry flavor. Plus, they’re seedless, making them all the easier to snack on and cook with.

This Cara Cara margarita recipe is super simple and sure to be a crowd pleaser!

If margaritas aren’t your style, try a delicious mocktail instead. This non-alcoholic winter sangria features roasted fruit flavors and warm spices that will bring warmth to the coldest of winter days! Cara Caras and other citrus fruits are perfect additions to this recipe.

What’s even better than margaritas and mocktails? Snacks to enjoy with your margaritas and mocktails! Coincidentally, National Tortilla Chip Day also falls during this week on Wednesday, February 24.

You can’t have tortilla chips without something to dip them in. Be sure to grab some salsa, queso, or guacamole (or all three!) to enjoy alongside your drinks.

If you’re making your dips at home, switch it up with fruity ingredients. Heat things up with spicy apple tomato salsa, and cool things down with strawberry and mango guacamole

The subtle sweetness of fruit will taste better in these dishes than you may expect, and the flavors will pair perfectly with your fruit-based drink.

Now, what are you waiting for? Grab some chips, dip, and a drink and get your fiesta underway!
