Had enough of the winter weather? Get a taste of warmer days to come with a celebration of National Margarita Day on Feb. 22. While we love a traditional margarita—straight up with salt—a few local hot spots are adding their own spin on this classic cocktail.
Lotus Farm to Table
Get a head start by sipping on margaritas on Sat., Feb. 20, at this downtown Media gem. Lotus is serving an oolong tea and lime margarita featuring a combination of oolong tea and lime juice, garnished with a dehydrated lime and black lava salt rim. Oolong tea is the powerhouse of teas—it reduces chronic health conditions like heart diseases (February is heart health month), inflammatory disorders and high cholesterol levels and also provides vital antioxidants while supporting bone health and clear skin.

Visit either Avenue Kitchen location on Mon., Feb. 22, and grab a taste of their blood orange margarita, which conquers the sweet and tangy combination. The creative cocktail features tequila el epsilon, blood oranges, lime and agave. Pair with hand-cut sea salt potato chips and chive buttermilk dip for a winning sip and bite.

Polish off the evening at Wayne’s Paramour with a sassy, grilled fuego margarita featuring grilled pineapple-jalapeño tequila, pineapple juice, agave nectar, fresh lime and a salty rim. Pineapple juice is packed with Vitamin C.
