Thursty Thursdays - National Margarita Day/Fig Margarita

{via}

You didn't think I'd miss National Margarita Day, did you?? If only it fell on a Thursty Thursday... I, although a lover and consumer of the fresh and potent bev, did not have a chance to imbibe this year. I did, however, take the time to appreciate the margaritas I have made, shared, and even sometimes denied. I have admitted in the past to being a purist when it comes to margarita drinking, so when you finish reminiscing about your favorite Thursty Thursday marg posts, you can try my favorite recipe for fig margaritas posted way, way below! Cheers!

Remember these bad boys? Oh, the days of summer, when a margarita popsicle was all you needed for a good time. It's never too late (or too soon) to relive those days!

I suddenly got a craving for this concoction: the cranberry margarita. Cold weather fruit + warm weather refreshment = the perfect pre-spring treat!
